HTML How to Make a Website Adding Pages to a Website Add and Style Icons

Challenge task 4 of 5 in Adding Pages to a Website.

I am having trouble with this challenge. The question is With the anchor elements inside the contact-info list still selected, set the background size to 20 pixels square. Then set the left padding to 30 pixels, with all other padding at 0.

Here is my current CSS:

.contact-info a { display:block; min-height: 20px; background-size: 20px; background-repeat: no-repeat; padding: 0 0 0 30px;


I am not sure what I am lacking. Any ideas? I appreciate any feedback.

you're close...

background-size: 20px 20px :)

just to elaborate, background-size takes a width and height, and the challenge is asking for 20px "squared," which would be 20px 20px

Hey Matt, see if this will work for you.

.contact-info a { 
    display: block; 
    min-height: 20px; 
    background: no-repeat; 
    background-size: 20px 20px;
    padding: 0 0 0 30px;
