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

Tell us what’s happening:
Describe your issue in detail here.
I am on step 49 of building color markers and it is telling me to change the background-color property to the background property and keep the value of rgb(255,0,0) the same in the .red rule on my css stylesheet. I made the change in property but it won’t seem to let me move on to the next step. The hint says " Your .red CSS rule should have a background property with the value rgb(255, 0, 0) ." I am unsure of what I am doing wrong, if someone can please help me I’d really appreciate it!
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">

  <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%);

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

Link to the challenge:

it needs to be a background color not just background

Im sorry I don’t understand, do you mean switch the property background to background-color?

yes, that is it does it work?

No, it did not work.
I originally had background-color but in this step it is introducing a new property called background so it is asking me to switch from background-color to background but it is not working.

do you have a different browser, there is a bug on safari where some code i dont know what code but your code look fine, you could if you dont have a different browser then try reseting your lesson but if it doesnt work then you will need a different browser
