Getting a error

this is the message im getting A class named silver-background should be defined within the style element and the value of silver should be assigned to the background-color property. I believe Ive already defined the class with the correct name and assigned the color.

Heres my code:

<link href="https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Lobster" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css">
<style>
  .red-text {
    color: red;
  }

  h2 {
    font-family: Lobster, monospace;
  }

  p {
    font-size: 16px;
    font-family: monospace;
  }

  .thick-green-border {
    border-color: green;
    border-width: 10px;
    border-style: solid;
    border-radius: 50%;
  }

  .smaller-image {
    width: 100px;
  }
  .silver-background{background-color:silver}

</style>

Please show us your code and a link to the challenge you are working on so we can best help.

When you enter a code block into a forum post, please precede it with a separate line of three backticks and follow it with a separate line of three backticks to make it easier to read.

You can also use the “preformatted text” tool in the editor (</>) to add backticks around text.

See this post to find the backtick on your keyboard.
Note: Backticks (`) are not single quotes (’).

The best way to ask questions about the challenges is to click the ‘Get Help’ button and then ‘Ask for help’. That will help you include everything you need so we can answer your question.

Try adding a semi-colon to the end of the background-color property you defined. These tests can be very specific about what they are looking for. Technically, I don’t think you need it if there is only one rule or it is the last rule in the bunch. But I’m guessing the testing rules don’t take that into account.

yes!! ty wow cant believe i didn’t see it sitting here for a hr!!!

I can see why you didn’t. In the right pane the background actually turns silver, so it seems like it should be working.
