If you set a variable in sass file for color can you delete the color declaration in the css file?

If you make a variable for the colors in the scss file and then delete the color declaration in the css file will anything happen? Also if you declare it in the scss file and then change it to something else in the css file which one will take priority? Same goes for any other declared variables in scss. Thanks!

Hi Sean, Great question!

As the CSS file is the output which the browser will use to render, The changes made to this file will take priority.

However, as discussed in the earlier videos on this course it's advised not to touch the output CSS files when using SASS.

Happy coding!
