CSS Color Markers Step49

Step says : In the .red CSS rule, change the background-color property to background

I have put: .red {background: rgb(255, 0, 0)}

Fails test but hint says: Your .red CSS rule should have a background property with the value rgb(255, 0, 0) . Do not know why it is failing

Link to the challenge:

Please when you put the values remember to add space between the comma and the digits and also close it

.red {background: rgb(255, 0, 0);}

Thanks for the reply, but sorry that does not work. I have tried all combinations and currently have:
.red {
background:rgb(255, 0, 0);
But I am still getting the following message when I try the code:


Sorry, your code does not pass. You’re getting there.


Your .red CSS rule should have a background property with the value rgb(255, 0, 0).
