Hi Matas,

You're very close! When referencing variables you still need to provide the style property. Just like you did with the colour variable in the H1 selector.

So when you're setting the variable for margin-left, remove the margin left from the variable declaration, and add it to the .col selector.

$color-brand: #6a5acd;
$gutter: 20px;

h1 {
  color:$color-brand;
}

.col {
  margin-left:  $gutter;

}

thank you
