Help With FlexBox

Question: Next, use the flexbox property and value that gives every list item inside main-nav evenly distributed widths.

My Code:

@media (min-width: 611px) {

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

}

Hi Devin, here is the code:

@media (min-width: 611px) {

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

}

The flex-grow property should be applied to the child items of your .main-nav.

Try this:

@media (min-width: 611px) {
    .main-nav {
        display: flex;
    }
    .main-nav a {
        flex-grow: 1;
    }
}
