Help! Code Challenge: Flexbox Layout

First, let's establish a flex formatting context. Give main-nav the display value that converts its list items into flex items.

This is what I have:

@media (min-width: 611px) {

/* Complete the challenge by writing CSS below */

.main-nav { display: flex; flex-grow: 1; }
