challenge question: Content Defined Breakpoints

Having trouble with the coding for the following challenge

Write a media query at 705px where the layout begins to break, that forces grid_1 through grid_6 to span 100% width of the container.

Here is the code I wrote at the bottom of the CSS file

@media screen and (max-width 705 px){ 
.grid_6 {
width: 100%;

and when I check the work I get the message

Bummer! Did you set the width for grid_1 through grid_6 to 100%?

Instead of giving you the answer, I'll give you a hint. It's a syntax error in your media query statement. You forgot one small thing.

Need more of a hint?

Here is the proper syntax, see if you can spot your problem. https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/Guide/CSS/Media_queries


Thanks found it!
