I'm not sure I understand the "clear the float left" instruction. Any suggestions?

I've tried taking the "clear: left;" out of the pseudo class selector, i've also tried clearing right... I just cant get it.

/* Write the CSS in the media query below */

@media (min-width: 607px) {

  img:nth-of-type(3n+4) {
    float: left;
    clear: left;

Hey, Jennifer!

It looks like you're combining Challenge Task 1 and Challenge Task 2. There should be two separate/distinct rules. Basically, you'll float the images in one rule, and then in a second rule, you'll clear only the images required (which you nailed in the provided snippet!).

Let me know if you need more help!

Yes! thank you, I figured it out shortly after I posted my question.
