CSS CSS Foundations The Box Model Floats

I don't know what to do

he didn't really tell us what to do for this. "Create a new CSS rule that floats the image with the class badge-icon left"

<!DOCTYPE html>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="page.css">
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css">
    <div class="badge">
        <img class="badge-icon" src="flag.png">
        <h4>Build a Simple Website</h4>
        <p class="badge-desc">Smells Like Bakin' is a cupcake company in need of a website. This project will walk us through the basics of HTML and CSS from the very beginning. HTML and CSS are the structural and presentational building blocks of every website and will serve as the foundation for any web project.</p>

p {


/* clearfix styles */

.group:after {
  display: table;
  content: "";

Hi Joshua,

Try this:

/* Complete the challenge by writing CSS below */

img.badge-icon {
  float: left;

This part targets the img with a class of badge-icon:

img.badge-icon {

You then use the following to float the element to the left side:

float: left;

Technically you could also target it with the following and it would pass but this wouldn't apply to img tags only:

/* Complete the challenge by writing CSS below */

.badge-icon {
  float: left;

You can find additional info on floats over at CSS Tricks too.

Hope that helps :)


For creating a new rule, look at the html to see how that badge icon is identified. There's an image tag:

<img class="badge-icon" src="flag.png">

I'd get started by using that class to target the badge with your css rule. Since it's a class, you put a dot before the name:

.badge-icon {
    /* Stuff to make your image float left... */

Its asking to put a rule in your CSS file for the class="badge-icon" and declare it's float value as left.

.selector { float: left; }

.badge-icon { float: left; }
