Floating div elements in media query not working

@media screen and (min-width:769) {
  .logo { 
    float:left; } 
  .main-nav {

.main {
    width: 40.425531914894%;
.extra {
    width: 23.404255319149%;

The above code should be right, but isn't. I'm trying to float two elements at 769 px but it isn't working. Thank you in advance for any replies.

If this is the exact code, you forgot to specify the min-width unit. 769px.

You can also see if the media query is working initially by changing the background color in your body -- body{background-color:yellow;}, then when you resize to that width, yellow should display and you will know you have the media query working.
