CSS Compass Basics Getting Started with Compass Getting Started with Compass

Code returns invalid CSS

So I'm pretty sure the syntax is correct, but it still returns an error? The question is as follows:

Next, use a mixin to give body a linear-gradient background. Make the start color #3d69b5 and the end color #1a335e.

Any advice is much appreciated!

sass/style.scss
/* Write your SCSS code below. */

// Imports
@import "compass/css3"

// Variables


// Page Styles

body{
@include background(linear-gradient(#3d69b5,#1a335e));
}

I think it just needs space between the two values

body{
@include background(linear-gradient(#3d69b5, #1a335e));
}
