Learn CSS Colors by Building a Set of Colored Markers - Step 25

can someone help me out here please i’m stuck
Now add a little more vertical space between your markers and the edge of the container element they’re in.

In the .container CSS rule, use the shorthand padding property to add 10px of top and bottom padding, and set the left and right padding to 0. This works similarly to the shorthand margin property you used earlier.

container {
background-color: rgb(0, 0, 0);
padding-top: 10px 0;
padding-bottom: 10px 0;
padding-left: 0px;
padding-right: 0px;


/* User Editable Region */

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

.one {
  background-color: rgb(255, 0, 0);

.two {
  background-color: rgb(0, 127, 0);

.three {
  background-color: rgb(0, 0, 255);

You have added two values for ‘padding-top’ and ‘padding-bottom’ instead of just one value.

Before the word “container” add the dot .container. The .container is a class selector.

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