Challenge: Step 49

Link to the challenge:

Hello @evanjeffries94 ,

linear-gradient is actually not a color but accepted as an image. That is why you’re requested to use
instead of

Background is a shorthand property of the followings;

background-color: #ffffff;
background-image: url(“img_tree.png”);
background-repeat: no-repeat;
background-position: right top;

You can check this(CSS Background Shorthand) link for further information.

So all you need to do in order to pass this step is →

.red {
  background: rgb(255, 0, 0);
