CSS Floats Code Challenge 2 classes one div?

I am currently stuck on a code challenge. It asks "It looks like we need to clear our floats. In the HTML file, add the class 'group' to the div with the class 'badge'."

I added class="group" to the div and I get this as an error when I hit check work:

"Bummer! Make sure you added the class 'group' to the div."

<div class="badge" class="group">
            <img class="badge-icon" src="flag.png">
        <h4>Build a Simple Website</h4>
        <p class="badge-desc">Smells Like Bakin' is a cupcake company in need of a     website. This project will walk us through the basics of HTML and CSS from the very     beginning. HTML and CSS are the structural and presentational building blocks of every     website and will serve as the foundation for any web project.</p>

Im not sure if I can add another class to the same div or if I need to make a separate div/class?
Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

hey Scott, if you want to use two classes in a same element just use one time 'class=""' and separate the two classes by a space.

I hope that helps!

hey Scott, if you want to use two classes in a same element just use class="" one time only and separate the two classes by a space. Example:

<div class="dogs cats"><h4>Hello Dog!</h4></div>

I hope that helps!

P.S. sorry for double post, forum is super slow on my end.

If Ibrahim's suggestion does not work you can just replace "badge" class with the "group" class. I just completed this code challenge a few minutes ago and that's how I did it.

I was going to reply but it looks like someone beat me to it, by one minute! That was a good reply Ibrahim. Keep it up!

Thanks Chase! :D Actually I'm really bad at helping out people because I'm still learning, I'm having hard time just positioning a basic design lol but it makes me feel better and confident when I help people.

Thanks for the helps all! After I posted this I actually just made a separate div class and it worked. It's good to know though that I can make two different classes within the same div.

Question on that thought: Which class takes precedence over the other? Common sense tells me the first class in the div but is the thought process really that simple?
