changing the color of paragraphs using p selector. How do you do that in css?

I typed "p" just like I would "h1" for headline 1. I guessed because I don't remember that being discussed in the video. what did I do wrong.

a {
  text-decoration: none;

#wrapper {
  max-width: 940px;
  margin: 0 auto;

#logo {
  text-align: center;
  margin: 0;

h1, h2 {

P {

p {
  color: #000;
