Your .red CSS rule should have a background property with the value rgb(255, 0, 0)

In the .red CSS rule, change the background-color property to background .

I don’t know what is the problem with my code, could you help?

  **Your code so far**
/* file: index.html */
<!DOCTYPE html>

/* file: styles.css */
h1 {
text-align: center;

.container {
background-color: rgb(255, 255, 255);
padding: 10px 0;
}

.marker {

One thing to remember is that the linear-gradient function actually creates an image element, and is usually paired with the background property which can accept an image as a value.

I was having this same issue. Switch to Google Chrome if you’re using Safari.
