CSS Sass Basics (retired) Advanced Sass Concepts Creating Loops with @for and @each

Advanced Sass Concepts - @each (2 of 2)

Really having a hard time with this:

Use an @each loop to set the variable $color to the color red, then blue, and finally green. Use the loop to create three classes: .red_box, .blue_box, and .green_box. The background color for each class should be set to the corresponding color.

@each $color in red, blue, green {
    .#{$color}_box {
        background: .#{$color}

I'm getting "Compilation Error"

Just to make this clear for anyone in the future

@each $color in red, blue, green {
background: #{$color};

Take the . out in background: .#{$color}

You also need a semicolon after #{$color};

Thanks Ben, it's always something 'obvious' right in front of my face...
