Link to the challenge:

Here you broke the syntax of your p element.

You must not break the syntax inside of your p elements.

This is the whitespace in between the two p elements that the instructions are talking about.

Wow I’m so dumb I did not pay attention to that thanks so much.

Typos and misunderstandings happen - that’s all part of being a programmer

I was able to solve the problem, but i don’t understand what it did, Is there an explanation?

First go to step 41.
What you did for step 40 is to prepare for 41.

Then after 41, simply watch the preview area and add a lot more spaces and lines between the flavor and price elements.
Try to associate what you are seeing with what you are changing in the editor.
