padding: 15px 10px;

which is just shorthand for

padding: 15px 10px 15px 10px;

which is also shorthand for

padding-top: 15px;
padding-right: 10px;
padding-bottom: 15px;
padding-left: 10px;

h1 { padding: 15px 10px 15px 10px; }

Padding and margin can be use this way. Its is in a clockwise process of "TOP RIGHT BOTTOM LEFT".

The padding property's order in the declaration is top, right, bottom and left. So it would look like that:


padding: 15px, 10px 15px 10px;

The shorthand version of the padding's order in a declaration would top and bottom is one value and left and right is another.


padding: (top, bottom), (left, right);

padding: 15px, 10px;

Hope this helps.
