HTML How to Make a Website Responsive Web Design and Testing Write CSS Media Queries

Breakpoint: Min-width: 480px;

Challenge: Create a breakpoint for devices 480 pixels wide or larger. Inside the breakpoint, set the body background to the color navy.

@media screen and ( min-width: 480px; ) { body{background-color: navy;} }

What am I doing wrong here? No matter the variation I haven't been able to get through this.

It looks like you put a semi colon in the breakpoint declaration. It's not needed and is probably what's breaking your media query. :-)

Hey Albino,

You just have a simple syntax error.

There is no ; after min-width: 480px. This is a very common mistake to make.

Oh I see. Let me go try it I'lll be back soon enough. Thanks. Didn't expect such a quick reply! :)

You guys can consider this problem solved. Wow. So many dayyys with a syntax error. I feel so drained from it. lol
