CSS

Content Defined break points

Been trying for a couple of hours to get through this task and I cant.... here are the instructions...... Write a media query at 705px where the layout begins to break, that forces grid_1 through grid_6 to span 100% width of the container.

Where exactly do I place the media query in the .css? If anyone can help me I'd really appreciate it..

body { font-family: 'Nunito', sans-serif; font-weight: 100; font-size: 1.25em; color: #faf3bc; background-color: #420600; }

.grid_1 { width: 15.625%; } /* 125px/800px = 15.625% / .grid_2 { width: 32.5%; } / 260px/800px = 32.5% / .grid_3 { width: 49.375%; } / 395px/800px = 49.375% / .grid_4 { width: 65.625%; } / 525px/800px = 65.625% / .grid_5 { width: 83.125%; } / 665px/800px = 83.125% / .grid_6 { width: 100%; } / 800px/800px = 100% */

.grid_1, .grid_2, .grid_3, .grid_4, .grid_5, .grid_6 { margin-right: 1.25%; float: left; display: block; } .alpha { margin-left:0; } .omega {margin-right:0; }

.container{ width: 90%; max-width: 800px; padding: 4% 0; margin: auto; } img { max-width: 100%; } h1 { font-size: 1.750em; line-height: 1.25em; font-weight: 100; letter-spacing: -2.75px; }

h2 { font-weight: 100; font-size: 1.15em; color: #b4c34f; } .cupcake { box-sizing: border-box; background-color: #faf3bc; padding: 8px; margin: 0 0 5% }

According to the videos, breakpoints should go at the bottom. So your code would look something like this:

@media screen and (max-width: 705px) { grid_1, grid_2, grid_3, grid_4, grid_5, grid_6 { width: 100% } }

thanks it worked, and the code inside of the {} is called by a .? like how would i call an img

you're welcome. not sure what your question is though.

If i wanted to call the variable img within that same media query at 705px to make the img disappear.

I've figured it out keith thank you so much you were a big help!

you'd add another rule telling the IMG element none to display
