Hey Juanpablo!

I just took a look at the challenge.

The font-size attribute influences the line-height, so you actually just want to multiply it by 1.6:

     .intro {
             font-size: 1.25em;
             line-height: 1.6;
     }

Alternatively, you could hardcode the value of line-height as 32px and still pass the challenge since 1.6 * 1.25em is 32px!

Normally I'm not fond of giving away the answer, but in this case I think the relationship between the two is a little more ambiguous.

You can find a reference for this here

Happy coding!
