You are definitely on the right track. One, remove the gaps between the value and its paremeters. Also, it's looking for 15 degrees counter clockwise, the way you have it right now is clockwise, so in order to go the opposite direction we have to make it a negative value, thus -15deg. Next, it's asking us to move it down by 50px, so we know that it is on the Y axis as opposed to the X axis. However, you are using scale when in fact you want to use translate, to be more specific translateY, this will allow us to move it down the Y axis at the 50px we specify. Lastly, you can combine both of those into one transform property - value declaration and just have them comma separated, you do not need to have them separate, that would actually cause the last transform declared to be the only one applied.

.badge {
  transform: rotate(-15deg), translateY(50px);

Hi Shayla,

Without giving you the exact answer the challenge is asking for you to:

Give the .badge element a transform that rotates it 15 degrees counterclockwise...

You are currently rotating it clockwise instead of counterclockwise. It's also asking for you to:

...and moves it down 50px.

You're currently scaling it. Try changing the scaleY to an alternative.

Here's the info you'll need from w3schools.

Hope that helps :)
