Learn CSS Colors by Building a Set of Colored Markers - Step 49

Tell us what’s happening:
Instructions are asking me to change a CSS rule:

“In the .red CSS rule, change the background-color property to background .”

Thanks in advance for your help! I’m stuck at this step. Unless there’s a typo I’m not seeing (likely), I don’t see anything more to change to comply with the instructions (below):




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


Your .red CSS rule should have a background property with the value rgb(255, 0, 0)."

  **Your code so far**
/* file: index.html */
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
  <meta charset="utf-8">
  <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0">
  <title>Colored Markers</title>
  <link rel="stylesheet" href="styles.css">
  <h1>CSS Color Markers</h1>
  <div class="container">
    <div class="marker red">
    <div class="marker green">
    <div class="marker blue">
/* file: styles.css */
h1 {
text-align: center;

.container {
background-color: rgb(255, 255, 255);
padding: 10px 0;

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

.red { background: rgb(255, 0, 0);}

.green {
background-color: #007F00;

.blue {
background-color: hsl(240, 100%, 50%);

Your code should not be inline

Thank you for replying!

As far as I can tell, my css code is in a separate “styles.css” file (provided by Freecodecamp). There is also a second file with the html markup.

As I understand your comment, my code appears to be inline rather than in a separate .css file?

Thank you,

No. This is how you have your code:
h1 {color: blue}
it should be:

h1 {
color: blue;

Hey! Welcome to the freeCodeCamp’s community forums.
All of your tests seem to pass for me when i run your code. I think maybe you’re using a browser extension thats messing with the tests.

Great suggestion! I’ll check since I do have a few things like that running as extensions.

Thank you.

I appreciate your reply. I re-checked my code, formatting like you displayed but I’m code still did not pass.

Thank you.

did you change your code to open curly braces?

Problem solved. Thanks everyone! I switched to Firefox (from Safari) and it worked right away, as coded. Thanks @staranbeer for your suggestion.
