Learn HTML Forms by Building a Registration Form - Step 61

in this step we are asked to adjust the padding for the photo file input, as the browser has it set my default to whatever its parameters are. why are we not using “em/rem” here instead of px? in a similiar question, why are we using 2 different color formats? why is min-width 300px instead of 1em? why are we even setting a min width if we have already set that in a previous “input” selector? idk if that question even makes sense

input[type="submit"] {
  display: block;
  width: 60%;
  margin: 1em auto;
  height: 2em;
  font-size: 1.1rem;
  background-color: #3b3b4f;
  border-color: white;
  min-width: 300px;
