box shadow

I cannot figure this out to save my life: Create a drop shadow for the .box div. Make it appear 10px to the right and 10px down, with a spread radius of 5px, a color of #222, and a blur radius of 15px.

and here is my answer:

.box {
  box-shadow: 10px -10px 15px 5px #222;

it says 10px down so change the proeprty of -10px to 10px and it should work.

<code>.box { box-shadow: 10px 10px 15px 5px #222; }</code>


It keeps saying 'Bummer! Make sure your box-shadow values exactly match the instructions' I just don't know what i'm doing wrong here.
