CSS CSS Basics (2014) Basic Selectors ID and Class Selectors

How to target main class selectors

Next, target the class main heading. Give the heading a font size property and set the value to 72px.

<!DOCTYPE html>
    <title>Lake Tahoe</title>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="page.css">
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css">
    <header class= "main-header">
      <span>Journey through the Sierra Nevada Mountains</span>
      <h1 class="main-heading"{font-size:72px;}>Lake Tahoe, California</h1>
      Lake Tahoe is one of the most breathtaking attractions located in California. It's home to a number of ski resorts, summer outdoor recreation, and tourist attractions. Snow and skiing are a significant part of the area's reputation.
    <a href="#">Find out more</a>
      <h2>Check out all the Wildlife</h2>
        As spawning season approaches, the fish acquire a humpback and protuberant jaw. After spawning, they die and their carcasses provide a feast for gatherings of mink, bears, and Bald eagles.
      <a href="#">See the Wildlife</a>
/* Complete the challenge by writing CSS below */
.main-header {
background-color: orange;

Hey Jason! Is the word target what's throwing you off? It's another term you'll hear people use instead of select. So you'd do the same thing you did before when you selected the class .main-header in the earlier task.

.main-heading {
   font-size: 72px;

The .main-heading rule should be very similar to what you did in your .main-header rule. Inside the rule, you'll have a declaration similar to what you did with background-color: orange; except it will be with font-size and 72px.

You have made your CSS declaration in the Html <h1 class="main-heading"{font-size:72px;}>Lake Tahoe, California</h1>

It's better to remove it from there and do it in the CSS folder just like Kristopher Van Sant has shown above. Good luck with your coding!

Kristopher, thanks for the advice, it was the word choice that was messing me up. Thank you, Christopher, you were right. I made my CSS declaration in the wrong folder.
