Learn CSS Transforms by Building a Penguin - Step 2

Tell us what’s happening:

body {
background: linear-gradient(
45deg,
rgb(118, 201, 255) 0%,
rgb(247, 255, 222) 100%,
);
}

So I input that code in Step 2 of building a happy Flappy penguin project on Html.

The prompt: Target the body element to set the background to a linear gradient angled 45 degrees clockwise, starting at rgb(118, 201, 255) and ending at rgb(247, 255, 222).

But I continue to get an error that says,”You should use the background property in the body selector.” I really don’t know what

try removing the comma after 100%. As such;

body {
background: linear-gradient(
45deg,
rgb(118, 201, 255) 0%,
rgb(247, 255, 222) 100%
);

Thanks I also realized that I didn’t need the semicolon at the end, I guess I am dumb. :joy:
