How to write CSS that will select the h1 element

*example <h1>Nick Pettit</h1>

index.html
<style></style>
<h1>Nick Pettit</h1>

Hi Jason,

Good question! Here's an example of a CSS rule that will select the h1 element and change the font size to 10 pixels.

h1 { font-size: 10px; }

Does that help?

First, you will take the style tags and place them inside the head tags. In between your style tags, put something like this:

  h1 {
       color: red;
  }

Hope this helps! :)
