having problems with this question can someone point me in the right direction

Just like the text-shadow property the box-shadow can take multiple comma-seperated values to add additional shadows to the same element. Let's give .main-header an inner-shadow with a second set of box-shadow values. Set the new shadow's horizontal and vertical offsets to 0, the blur radius to 60px, the spread radius to 5px, and the color to firebrick. Don't forget to include the keyword value that creates an inner box shadow.

Hi. In the future its better to:

  • Add more semantic meaning title to your Q ("How to use text-shadow...bla bla")...."having problems" its to general.
  • Add your code example
.main-header {
/* "first set of box-shadow */
0 2px 15px #aaa,
/* "second set of box-shadow values" - seperate by comma */
/* inset keyword | offset-x | offset-y | blur-radius | spread-radius | color */
              inset 0 0 60px 5px firebrick;
