Hi Davidson,

It looks like the color the background is still white. I don't see any of your code or the hex color there to change it. If you could include the code you are trying, then we will be able to help you troubleshoot your error.

You have completed the first task, the second task is similar, but on the background and using a hex color. Give it another go, if you're still stuck, copy / paste the code you are trying into a comment her (Make sure you follow the "Markdown CheatSheet" for proper formatting of code snippets as given below in the link above submit answer button.
