Got stocked in step 78 of the CSS Colors practice

I am trying to create a new rule to target both the cap and sleeve classes.


.cap sleeve { display: inline-block;}
  **Your code so far**

/* file: styles.css */
h1 {
text-align: center;
}

.container {
background-color: rgb(255, 255, 255);
padding: 10px 0;
}

.marker {
width: 200px;
height: 25px;
margin: 10px auto;
}

.cap {
width: 60px;
height: 25px;
}

.sleeve {
width: 110px;
height: 25px;
background-color: rgba(255, 255, 255, 0.5);
}

.cap sleeve { display: inline-block;}

.red {
background: linear-gradient(rgb(122, 74, 14), rgb(245, 62, 113), rgb(162, 27, 27));
}

.green {
background: linear-gradient(#55680D, #71F53E, #116C31);
}

.blue {
background: linear-gradient(hsl(186, 76%, 16%), hsl(223, 90%, 60%), hsl(240, 56%, 42%));
}

Challenge: Step 78

Link to the challenge:

found the solution.

.cap, .sleeve {display: inline-block;}

If we want to apply a code to two different classes of two different elements we use the comma between the classes or elements

.class1, class2, class3 { your style here}

in the example above we apply the style for 3 different classes .class1 and class2 and class3
and your code is

.cap sleeve { display: inline-block;}

you need to add the comma between them and a dot to the sleeve class

Thanks, I had the exact same problem and spent way too long trying to figure this out before finding your post.
