Hi there,

You have a semi-colon in the wrong place…

Also, a bracket is missing from the background colour syntax.

PS welcome to the community.

I thought the semi-colon is supposed to go after the inline-block? If not there, then where? My background color is working. Just for some reason my .cap, .sleeve classes aren’t computing.

You’re right, I misread it for some reason.

I have tried your code and it passes. Can you reset and try again?


Great work! Look like the ‘background-color’ property inside the ‘.sleeve’ selector is missing a closing bracket ’ ) '. Happy coding!

Thank you! I reset the page, and now it works for some reason. I really appreciate the help!

no problem, sorry for giving incorrect info. earlier

happy coding
