Code Challenge: Numeric and Textual Data Types

I having trouble with this task:

Using a percentage, set the paragraph to half of its current width.

Here's my code:

<code> p { width: 50%; } </code>

Any ideas? I am confident that the answer is correct but for some reason it keeps telling me to check the length unit in my CSS value.

Thank you!

This worked for me:

p{width: 50%;}

I can't really see any difference.

Hey Samuel Lopez,

I just tried the same thing and it seemed to work. Maybe run it again and see if it will work now...

Thank you @Chase James and @Jason Loughry. Apparently I had to add a space between the div and the [ in the code from the previous task.

Thank for you help guys!
