Confused.

I'm using the target/context = result formula, but I can't get this question right. Can someone help me with this?

For .cake, you want a padding of 10px in a 600px element, so...10/600 = 0.01666666... or 1.666666%. For .filling, you want a padding of 10px in a 500px element, so... 10/500 = 0.02 or 2%.

I'm guessing you were using 700px as your context. It's always tempting to use the main wrapper div as your context, but remember to use the width of the element you're trying to affect.
