Box Shadow Code Challenge

In the challenge it asks me to "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." So i did that

.box { box-shadow:10px 10px 5px #222 15px; } and it tells me that i am wrong and to write the code just the way it is in the instructions. So can someone tell me what is wrong with my code?

That's a bit misleading, the syntax for a box shadow is h-shadow v-shadow blur spread colour so your code should be

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

Thanks that worked just fine.
