Hi Robert,

Instead of number individually with flex you can just use a negative value and that seems to be what the challenge is looking for so below is the code I used to pass the challenge :)

@media (min-width: 611px) {

   /* Complete the challenge by writing CSS below */
  .main-nav,
  .content-row {
    display: flex;
  }
  .main-nav li {
    flex-grow: 1;
  }
  .secondary {
    order: -1;
  }
}

Hope this helps Craig

Thanks, Craig! That is it!
