Im a little bit confused by the question, but . . . In the video she is looking for a piece of information attached to an html-element called a "class". She uses this information to locate it in the the styles.css file, where all the styling of html-elements are applied.

in styles.css the code is located at line 65, the hover effect at line 73.

in the html, or index.html, the reference or "class" can be found on line 24.

You can search through your files in the workspace by pressing ctrl+f on windows and I think cmd+f on mac. A search field appears, you can type in what you are looking for.

If I understand your question correctly you are ask how do you know where to look to change hat piece of code. In this particular case shes refering to an image located in the header. Since what you want to change about it is style related you will have to find it in css. If you look at the link where you add the picture you will see a class= "profile-image" .profile-image is the section in the css document you would have to find to change.

Just look at the left side, there are the row numbers. But Treasure used the <img> tag specific class property and selected the element. Inside the css file use this. For example.

   //your css code


Wrap your code with 3 backticks (```) on the line before and after. If you specify the language after the first set of backticks, that'll help us with syntax highlighting.

      <p>This is code!</p>

You can use the snapshot function in the workspace and provide the link to that.
