if you look in the css file for the CC you will see this:

/* Float Clearfix

This this the css that is suppose to help fix issue that occur when floating elements on a page. FYI, they are almost always called clearfixes. What the challenge wants you to do is add the class used in the clear fix to the header html. If you look at the top of the CC code editor you will see a tab called index.html. Find the


and add the class to that.

Thank you
