Am I missing something 🥸? #46

Instructions Read:

“In the .green CSS rule, set the background-color property to a hex color code with the values 00 for red, FF for green, and 00 blue.”

I thought I entered my code correctly but it keeps saying i got it incorrect.
Any advice would be wonderful to this new coder :slight_smile:

Have you any previous step where hex is used like this?

no this was the first one introducing it.
Should i try refreshing the site?

There is no such thing as writing hex(#color_value). You can write #color_value.

Remove the word hex and parentheses - just #00FF00 for the value

I can see why you’d think that though, because this step comes right after learning rgb(x, x, x)! If you look again at the instructions, it does not mention adding hex anywhere - just the hash #
