CSS Foundations Margins, Aligning, and Centering, Barista Tool Practice

Hey! I am working my way through the foundations of CSS and developing a simple Barista tool for practice. If I want to center my .block div within the page, and the table within the div containing the Brew Method and Notes section, what should I do differently? Right now when I fullscreen in chrome my table is slightly to the left of center... Thanks! Jon

<div class="block">
      <form>
             <table class="table">
               <thead>
                 <tr>
                  <th>Brew Method</th>
                  <th>Notes</th>
                 </tr>
            </thead>
            <tbody>
            <tr>
            <td>
                <input name="radio" type="radio" id="radio1"><label for="radio1">Espresso</label><br>
                <input name="radio" type="radio" id="radio2"><label for="radio2">Full Immersion</label><br>
                <input name="radio" type="radio" id="radio3"><label for="radio3">Pour Over</label><br>
                <input name="radio" type="radio" id="radio4"><label for="radio4">Commercial</label><br>
                <input name="radio" type="radio" id="radio5"><label for="radio5">Other</label><br>
                </td>
                  <td>
                    <input type="text" id="notes">
                  </td>
                </tr>
                </tbody>
            </table>
        </form>
    </div>
.bg {
  background: black;
}

.box {
  background: white;
  margin: auto;
  border-radius: 10%;
  padding: 20px;
}

.block {
  width: 50%;
  margin: auto;
}

how do I make the code visable in my post? Im giving it three backticks but it still translates the html... help please?

Edited your post to add MarkDown for embedding code. If you now click edit you can see the backticks required and optional language name :)

i figured it out, and was probably just tired last night dancing around the answer, or not saving properly... all i did was add a specific class to the table within the div with a margin: auto; and it centered evenly, not sure what i was botching yesterday

Blame it on tired eyes :)
