CSS How to Make a Website Beginning HTML and CSS Write a CSS Selector and Property

I don't remember what to put inside the <style> brackets to change the color. I put "color:green" but that didn't work.

I also put {color:green} but that didn't work either.

Hey Ariana,

You first need to select the h1 element by just typing "h1" and curly braces like this:

h1 {

Next, it wants you to change the color of h1 elements to green. This means that you use the selector you just created (the "h1") and you put that "color: green;" statement inside the curly braces so that it applies it to the h1. And then ta-dah! :D

h1 {
color: green;

Thank you! With your help, figured it out. :)

You are most welcome, Ariana! Happy Coding! :)

You need to select the element you want to change. Like this:

h1{ color: green; }

This is already solved, Yaroslav.
