Hello Andres!

The first thing to do is look at what this challenge is asking: take the image out of the normal flow and have it on the LEFT so that the text wraps on the RIGHT.

To do this, we'll only need to make the float declaration. Let's take the text-wrap declaration out of the code:

  float: right;

Lastly, as we established above, we want the image on the left side and the text on the right. All we have to do is change the declaration from right to left:

  float: left;

And there we go! We've completed the first step of the challenge and are ready to continue to the next. Happy coding!
