Your p element should have the text ${budgetCalories} Calories Budgeted .
i did it but my code is still not passing

Your code so far

const surplusOrDeficit = remainingCalories >= 0 ? ‘Surplus’ : ‘Deficit’;

Where is the opening <p>, and the closing </p> tag?
Read the instructions again: " Now create a p element with the text budgetCalories Calories Budgeted…"


Noted. My Code has passed thanks


${budgetCalories}Calories Budgeted

`; } be careful with spacing, thats the issue i had

like DobarBREND explained, the p opening and closing tag are needed to pass this challenge, and like Zan1 said, spacing is an issue for passing the actual step in the project. This has more to do with the requirements of it’s (the project itself) requirements than it does with any real world application.

Don’t misunderstand me, spacing is important, formatting is important, but whether or not you include a space before or after a p tag will depend on how you are specifically trying to format your paragraph in the code you are writing, but for this specific project, on this specific text, the format it requires is to not have a space before or after the tag, so

<p>${budgetCalories} Calories Budgeted</p> will work, but
<p> (space) ${budgetCalories} Calories Budgeted</p> will not work.

Spaces before, or after, or a lack of a space can have subtle differences in the way that your page formats in regards to a p tag, you should experiment with them. I didn’t realize this at first, and was very confused and frustrated by not being able to understand why my perfectly placed paragraphs weren’t lining up perfectly.

But it’s also important to understand that having or not having a space before or after a p tag will not prevent you from creating or using a p tag, it’s not like <p> space "Text" </p> will produce a syntax error or anything.
