CSS CSS Foundations Backgrounds and Borders Border Radius

border radius

Hi I am working on the code challenge the question is "Using the border-radius shorthand, give each corner of the .oval div a horizontal radius of 100px and a vertical radius of 50px."

I have checked everything but I can't find out what I did wrong.


<!DOCTYPE html>
    <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="page.css">
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css">
    <div class="rounded box"></div>
    <div class="oval box"></div>
/* Complete the challenge by writing CSS below */

.rounded {
  border-radius: 30px;


.oval{ border-radius: 100px/ 50px;}

It looks like just a simple case of a stray curly brace is messing with your styles.

The complete code for the challenge is

.rounded {
 border-radius: 30px;

.oval {
  border-radius: 100px / 50px;

You got it right, just forgot to move a stray character that shouldn't have been there. :-)
