HTML Introduction to HTML and CSS (2016) Getting Familiar with HTML and CSS Test: Changing the Look of a Web Page

How do I change the h1 code to purple? :/

I can't remember what the code was to change the color! I think it was something like .location rather

<!doctype html>
    <link href="styles.css" rel="stylesheet">

    <h1>Welcome to My Web Page!</h1>

basic form is kinda like:

selector {
    attribute: value;
    attribute2: value2;

Value can be a value and a unit (eg. 5px, 6%, 2em), and you can have multiple selectors for a single rule (separate with commas). Here you want

h1 {

h1 is a type selector. color is an attribute, purple is the value.
