how to I use float or the image?

/* Complete the challenge by writing CSS below */
.img-thumbnail {
  float: right; 
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
  <meta charset="UTF-8">
  <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1">
  <title>Developer Diane's blog</title>
  <link rel="stylesheet" href="page.css">
  <link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css">
    Developer Diane’s Blog
    <section class="intro">
      <img src="developer-diane.jpg" alt="Developer Diane coding on her laptop." class="img-thumbnail">
      <h1>The verdict is in. CSS Layout is great!</h1>
      <p class="clear">I’ve been working with CSS for a while now, and I have to say, it’s pretty awesome. I love being able to separate content from presentation, and to keep all my styles in an external stylesheet.</p>
      <p>I’ve had a pretty good grasp on the basics for a while now, but I needed to learn more about how to control layout with my CSS. Understanding CSS layout meant first exploring the parts of the CSS box model.</p>

Hey, so for text to wrap on the right side, you need to float: left

And the challenge is asking you to target the img element. I would look like this:

img {
     float: left;
