Css transform code

For some reason the following code doesn't work.

transform: translateY(100%);

The exercise tells me to move the element up by 100% of its original position but when I submit it says "make sure you are putting in the correct value for translateY "

Without code snippet or a link to workspaces it's hard to guess but maybe you should try TranslateX instead.

It's asking to move the element UP. When it's 100% it's going to go down. When you use negative value of -100% it's going to go UP. Also, in your code you have translated not translateY

It worked! Thanks a lot!
