Hey, anyone could help on this?

Tell us what’s happening:
Hello everyone, here is my challenge :
When using your variable as a CSS property value, you can attach a fallback value that your browser will revert to if the given variable is invalid.

Note: This fallback is not used to increase browser compatibility, and it will not work on IE browsers. Rather, it is used so that the browser has a color to display if it cannot find your variable.

Here’s how you do it:

background: var(--penguin-skin, black);

This will set background to black if your variable wasn’t set. Note that this can be useful for debugging.

It looks like there is a problem with the variables supplied to the .penguin-top and .penguin-bottom classes. Rather than fix the typo, add a fallback value of black to the background property of the .penguin-top and .penguin-bottom classes.

Your code so far

<style>
.penguin {
  --penguin-skin: black;

</div>

and here’s the mistakes message ===>

The fallback value of black should be used in the background property of the penguin-top class.

The fallback value of black should be used in background property of the penguin-bottom class.

Can you find the answder please, I’m totally lost ? :upside_down_face:

Well I’ve just found this rule, I didn’t , then I did, but it doesn’t work either…

I’ve reseted my step, and it doesn’t work as well… I don’t understand…

again, do not fix the typo in the variable name
you are required to leave it there, to make the fallback work

OK yeah I understood, the first time I fixed everything, the second time (now) I deleted then rewrite everything… That’s alright now :smiley: (solution : just add black … :upside_down_face:) thanks for your time @ilenia

awesome
keep coding!
