It looks like you're on task 2, "Next, display the list items inside .footer-nav side by side with a float."

To target elements inside another one, you can use a descendant selector. This is just the selector for the outer element plus the selector for the inner one(s) separated by a space.

i tried .footer-nav,li{ float: left; display : inline-block; }

it workes but the answer is incorect why?

Note that when creating a descendant selector, the individual selectors should be separated only by a space (no comma).
