CSS CSS Basics (2014) Understanding Values and Units Styling the Intro Paragraph

Confused with unitless line-height problem.

I'm confused on how to defeat this problem. It seems simple and even the helper is telling me what to do, yet i can not figure out what i'm doing wrong.

My answer came out to line-height: 2; I even did 1.6 x 20 and tried line-height: 32;

Can anyone show me my mistake? Thanks!

what does the question state to set the line height to for the paragraph size? If it states to set the line height to 1.5x the paragraph size the attribute should be defined

line-height: 1.5;

Hope this is what your looking for.

Thanks, i had to make the unitless line height 1.6 times larger than the font-size. Your answer helped!
