so there are few different way you can do this., but in this lesson you're going to use the CSS style sheet. in order to change the color of an element from the HTML page you'll want to select it in the CSS folder and created a new rule like this:

h1 {
  color: purple;

You need to modify the "styles.css" document.

Add this element:

h1 { color: purple; }

Then in your style.css add the following ....................

h1 { color: purple; }
