Challenge: Learn CSS Transforms by Building a Penguin - Step 54

Link to the challenge:

Please Tell us what’s happening in your own words.

Learning to describe problems is hard, but it is an important part of learning how to code.

Also, the more you say, the more we can help!

This is the other way I was thinking. Still not sure.
:root {
background-color: var(–penguin-face, white);
}

That doesn’t look correct. You can always look at the code from the city skyline project to review variables there. (For eg just click on the last step and review the styles.css)

Ok, I will try that. Thank you.

Breakdown user story into smallest chunk possible and solve one by one

Create a custom CSS property called --penguin-face , and set it to white .

Google “how to create custom css property”, check MDN documentation or other result’s page and try solving this challenge. It’ll be easier to debug and fix
