# h1 is 5.625 times larger than 1em (16px)?

@6:24 I am confused what h1 font size is. He said it's 5.625 larger, but larger than what?

What is the exact px amount?

The original font size for the h1 was set in the style sheet as 90 px. The default value for em's is the equivalent of 16px. If you divide 90px by 16 you get the scaleable value for the em of 5.625. The instructor is showing you how to change a fixed pixel font-size to something that scales with the viewport. 90px may not look that great on say a large screen but the scaleable em will resize in proportion and look appropriate for the larger screen size.

Default em value is 16px.

I made a formula that might be useful:

(Desired font-size in em units) = (Desired font-size in px units) / (Parent font-size in px units)

I am confused what h1 font size is.

To find out what em value you need you can use the formula above like so:

5.625 = x / 16

90 = x
