(BUG)Using .icing as your context, convert the width of .cake from pixels to percentages (using the comments as a guide).

I divide 500(target) and divide it by 400 (width) and get 1.25% then move it over two places to get 125% and it keeps marking me wrong?!?!?! why??

If the container is 500 px wide and you want the element to take up 400 px You need to divide 400 / 500 which gives you .80 or 80% By dividing the other way 500 / 400 which is 1.25 or 125% you would make the element 1.25 times bigger than the container.

o wow! I tried .8, but not that thanks Jeremy!
