CSS

Help with media queries

Hi Everyone,

I'm on the code challenge for implementing media queries and I'm stuck on this second question :

Add the appropriate CSS code to the media query so that ".contact" and ".menu" fill the entire container width when the device or browser width is at most 480px wide.

This is how it looks so far and I'm not sure where I'm going wrong...

/* Mobile ----------- */
@media screen and (max-width : 480px) {
  .contact 
max-width: 100%;
  .menu
max-width: 100%;

Thanks in advance!

One tiny tweak will solve it. Here's something to think about: if max-width sets the absolute widest you want your container to be, What attribute and value will make the width take up the entire width of the container?

Would it be the max-width in the media query? I'm so confused!
