Link to the challenge:

I believe it just wants you to use the hexidecimal code (# folloed by 6 letters/digits). You dont use the rgb() for this. Hope that helps

Sorry, your code does not pass. You’re getting there.


Your .green CSS rule should have a background-color property set to #00FF00. "

Hmmm. I just tried and it worked for me. Are you writing #00FF00 (with zeros)?
