Don't worry, you don't need to change much within the linear-gradient function.

Whats important to know, is that you are only adding 2 pieces of information so you can complete the last task.

The first: 'Set the second color stop's position to 90%' If you recall, you will put the color-stop percentage right after the color it references, like so:

linear-gradient(green, blue 45%)

The Second: 'Add value that sets the gradient direction from bottom to top'

There are 2 ways to do this, and MDN documentation is confusing but you can read up on it at W3C CSS gradients

Either use:

  1. 0deg
  2. 'to top'
linear-gradient(0deg, purple, blue)

Now put all of that together.
