tried:

h2 { font-size: 3.313em }

style.css
/* Complete the challenge by writing CSS below */

header {
  font-size: 1.8em;
}

.title {
  font-size: 1.625rem;

  font-size: 5.625rem;
}

h2 {
  font-size: 3.313rem

        As spawning season approaches, the fish acquire a humpback and protuberant jaw. After spawning, they die and their carcasses provide a feast for gatherings of mink, bears, and Bald eagles.

You have the right idea, but your calculation did not use full precision. Try 3.3125.

Also, the instructions for that step say "Use an em unit".
