Code is correct

Tell us what’s happening:

The Code is perfect, please fix the lesson as there must be a mistake.

  **Your code so far**

div {
  width: 70%;
  height: 100px;
  margin: 50px auto;
#top {
  background-color: red;
  transform: skewy(-10deg);
#bottom {
  background-color: blue;
  transform: skewX(24deg);

<div id="top"></div>
<div id="bottom"></div>

Challenge: Use the CSS Transform Property skewY to Skew an Element Along the Y-Axis

You have a typo in this line which is causing your tests to fail.

For future reference, I would not open with this :slight_smile:


I don’t understand. Where is this typo?

transform: skewy(-10deg);

Sorry, but at this point the video, the hints and everything else points to my code being right. tried it ten times and its a bit frustrating.

Look very closely at the skew**X** function used in #bottom. Now compare that to your skew**y** function. Asterisks added for emphasis.

Note: Most programming languages are case sensitive.


wow, this is the first lesson which has failed due to caps…hm. others ive been able to work out but not this one. Cheers BBsmooth, i really could have sworn there was something wrong with the software in the background ha. thanks!

got it, BBsmooth helped me catch it

I believe that technically, CSS property names aren’t case sensitive, so you could use either:

transform: skewY(-10deg);


TRANSFORM: skewY(-10deg);

But skewY isn’t a CSS property, it’s a CSS function and those are case sensitive.

P.S. In the “real world” nobody uses uppercase for CSS property names and you would probably get looked at weird if you did :slight_smile:

yes, it was literally driving me insane. spent ten minutes trying to find on barely a line of code. Thought maybe id gone insane. its probably obvious to you im still in the beginning stages of these lessons but either way, Thanks again BBsmooth. I will definitely not open with that line again haha!
