HTML How to Make a Website Adding Pages to a Website Add and Style Icons

I am having trouble figuring out what I am doing wrong when adding background size and padding.

With the anchor elements inside the contact-info list still selected, set the background size to 20 pixels square. Then set the left padding to 30 pixels, with all other padding at 0.

css/main.css
a {
  text-decoration: none;
}

#wrapper {
  max-width: 940px;
  margin: 0 auto;
}

#logo {
  text-align: center;
  margin: 0;
}

h1, h2 {
  color: #fff;
}

nav a {
  color: #fff;
}

nav a:hover {
  color: #32673f;
}

h1 {
  font-family: Changa One, sans-serif;
  font-size: 1.75em;
  font-weight: normal;
}

img {
  max-width: 100%;
}

#gallery {
  margin: 0;
  padding: 0;
  list-style: none;
}

#gallery li {
  float: left;
  width: 45%;
  margin: 2.5%;
  background-color: #f5f5f5;
  color: #bdc3c7;
}

nav ul {
  list-style: none;
  margin: 0 10px;
  padding: 0;
}

nav li {
  display: inline-block;
}

nav a {
  font-weight: 800;
  padding: 15px 10px;
}

.profile-photo {
  display: block;
  margin: 0 auto 30px;
      max-width: 150px;
  border-radius: 100%;
}
.contact-info {
  font-size:0.9em;
  margin: 0;
  padding: 0;
  list-style: none;}
.contact-info a {
  display:block;
  min-height: 20px;
  background-repeat: no-repeat;
  background-size: 20px;
  padding:0 0 0 30px;
}

The "background-size" needs 2 values. If only 1 value is provided, in this case it's 20px, it will assume the width is 20px, and the height is auto.

you were right. I also realize that the question says to set the background size to 20pixels "square", meaning all sizes.

thanks for your help.

I used your code to pass both tasks in challenge & it passed. Try running again if youre getting errors. Should work.
