I have a question about the challenge question, Front End Development track, stage 4, task 3

It asks me to select the link and give it an em value equal to the root measurement, but I am having the hardest time figuring this out. Can someone help me on this? Thank you

Hi Nikki, here's the formula to calculate the rem equivalent. And remember, the default size for most web browsers is 16px.

Target Size / Base Size = Value

Which provides you with:

16px = 1rem (base)

.more {
  font-size: 1rem;
