Font Family for p element

Tell us what’s happening:
This is the code that i have but it won’t take. I’ve tried everything suggested.
Please help. Entered spaces and periods for viewing.

Your code so far
< p…
{font -size: 16px; font -family: Monospace;}
Kitty ipsum dolor set atum.
< /p>

You need to declare your style in the <style> tags, not in the element.
