What is going on? What are you trying to do? What part do you need help with? What errors are you experiencing? What else have you tried while attempting to solve the problem?

i tried removing background: var(–red-color);

This challenge does not ask you to remove anything. It asks you to add something.

It looks like a variable is being used to set the background color of the .red-box class. Let’s improve our browser compatibility by adding another background declaration right before the existing declaration and set its value to red.

i tried putting … background-color: red; right on top background: var(-red-color);

Why did you remove the following line from the red-box class?

background: var(--red-color);

Just read the challenge instruction carefully…
“add another background declaration right before the existing declaration and set its value to red”
