Convert the Padding on .Cake from Pixels to Percentages

The challenge starts out like this:

.cake {
                background-color: #f8748f;
                width: 85.714285714%;  /*600px*/
        margin: 1.428571429%;
        padding: 10px;

So then I divide 10 by 600 (0.01666666666) , and then move the decimal point (0.1666666666). Then I add the percent mark. It then says there is a problem with my calculations. Does anybody know what I am doing wrong? I tried to figure it out on my own, but it didn't work. I looked at all the forum discussions before I posted this. Thank you so much!

Bethany Cooksey, you just need to move the decimal point over 2 places instead of 1 to convert to percentages.
