CSS CSS Basics (2014) The Box Model Padding, Borders, and Margins

Create a new rule that targets the primary-content class. Add a padding property that sets the top padding to 25 pixels


1 Answer

.primary-content {padding-top:25px;}

/* OR */

.primary-content {padding:25px 0 0 0;}

The .primary-content bit targets the class primary-content and then you can either do padding-top:25px; if you just want to select the padding-top or you can do it a bit shorthand and do padding:25px 0 0 0 (you can even take the last 0 off). The four sets of numbers mean the four sides of the box, starting with the top then going right, bottom, left.
