CSS CSS Foundations Backgrounds and Borders Border Radius


using the border-radius shorthand, give each corner of the .oval div a horizontal radius of 100px and a vertical radius of 50px. what is wrong with the code?

<!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 {

.oval {
  border-radius:30px 100px/50px;

Take of the "box" class. it will match the css .oval and .rounded

<!DOCTYPE html> <html> <head> <title>Border-radius</title> <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="page.css"> <link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css"> </head> <body> <div class="rounded"></div> <div class="oval "></div> </body> </html>

If values are given before and after the slash, then the values before the slash set the horizontal radius and the values after the slash set the vertical radius.

Therefore, you would need:

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