Finally, create a rule that targets an h1. Use the px-to-rem function to convert a font-size value of 60px to a value in rem units.

my answer is h1 { font-size: px-to-rem (16px, 60px); }

Not sure if I am doing this wrong?

style.scss
$base-font-size: 16px;

// Write your function here
@function px-to-rem ($target, $context: $base-font-size) {
@return ($target / $context) * 1rem;
}

h1 {
font-size: px-to-rem (16px, 60px);
}

$base-font-size: 16px;  <---

// Write your function here   (      1        ,          2         )
@function px-to-rem ($target, $context: $base-font-size) {
@return ($target / $context) * 1rem;
}

h1 {
font-size: px-to-rem (16px, 60px);
}

You only need to enter the value for the first parameter ($target) in the px-to-rem function. Because the second parameter ($context) has already set its value to $base-font-size: 16px.

it technically looks like this px-to-rem( , 16px); so just enter the 60 px in the first parameter. px-to-rem(60px)

The challenge is asking you to actually convert 60px to rem units so you don't need to write "px-to-rem"!convert first then write the answer as: h1 { font-size: 1rem; }
