I googled examples to help me reach the answer. Although none of it has been helpful. Can I get a link shared to a helpful source to solve the code?

Challenge: Learn CSS Colors by Building a Set of Colored Markers - Step 65

Link to the challenge:

hello, welcome to the forum.

We are the ‘google’ you need :smiley: (well in many cases anyway)

In this exercise you are asked to:
remove[…] the gradientDirection argument from both linear-gradient functions

And at the start you are shown 2 lines of code both containing calls to the linear-gradient function.

So what does it mean to remove the “gradientDirection”

There is exactly one direction in each line. Can you figure it out from this hint?

This is the syntax for linear-gradient:

...: linear-gradient(gradientDirection, color1, color2);

This should help you understand what to do (give the challenge a read and refer back).

I know the linear gradient is the indicator of the direction but gradient direction im not sure

well even if you are unsure, just using common-sense,
in the 2 lines given to you, there are only 2 things that could possibly be considered a direction? Wouldn’t you agree?

o ok I figured it out thank you for the help!
