Clearing Floats

I'm asked to add the correct class to the HTML element and I don't know what I'm doing wrong. Can someone help me with this?

style.css
/* Complete the challenge by writing CSS below */



/* Clearfix ---------------------------------- */

.group:after {
  content: "";
  display: table;
  clear: both;
}

.content-lodging {
  float: right; 
}

.content-traveling {
  float: left; 
}
index.html
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  <head>
    <title>Lake Tahoe</title>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="page.css">
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css">
  </head>
  <body> 
        <div class="secondary-content t-border" class="group">

        <h3>From Tents to Resorts</h3>
        <p>
          Lake Tahoe is full of wonderful places to stay. You have the ability to sleep in the outdoors in a tent, or relax like a king at a five star resort. Here are our top three resorts:
        </p>
        <ul>
          <li><a href="#hotels">Lake Tahoe Resort Hotel</a></li>
          <li><a href="#resorts">South Lake Tahoe Resorts</a></li>
          <li><a href="#lodging">Tahoe Ski Resort Lodging</a></li>
        </ul>       
      </div>

      <div class="content-traveling">
        <img src="mtn-landscape.jpg" alt="Mountain Landscape">
        <h3>Pack Accordingly</h3>
        <p>
          One of most important things when it comes to traveling through the great outdoors is packing accordingly. Here are a few tips:
        </p>
        <ol>
          <li>Bring layers of clothing</li>
          <li>Pack sunscreen</li>
          <li>Carry extra water just in case</li>
          <li>Pack light</li>
        </ol>
      </div>
        </div><!-- End .secondary-content -->

        <footer class="main-footer">
            <p>All rights reserved to the state of <a href="#">California</a>.</p>
            <a href="#top">Back to top &raquo;</a>
        </footer>
  </body>
</html>

You're pretty close.

It looks like you identified the class and the element to add it to. But since that element already has a class attribute, you just need to include the new class name with the others already part of that attribute.

Adding the same attribute again would cause a syntax error or at least override the other settings.

Thank you Steven. I learned that an element can only have one ID, but I guess I missed the part that taught class values should be included in one attribute.
