Implementing Media Queries challenge

Im stuck in this challenge - "Add the appropriate CSS code to the media query so that images within the ".cupcake" div disappear when the device or browser width is at most 480px wide."

this is the best I came up with... but it keeps telling me "The image is still visible even when the device width is less than 480px."

/* Mobile ----------- */
@media screen and (max-width : 480px) {

  .cupcake img {
    max-width: 100%;

   .contact {
   width: 100%;
  .menu {
   width: 100%;

Im stuck :/

Hi Yael,

You're pretty close. The max-width: 100% property you used in the ".cupcake img" rule will always display the image the full width of its containing element. That's why you're seeing the "The image is still visible even when the device width is less than 480px." message.

Instead of the max-width property, you will need to use the display property to hide the image.

Hope this helps :)

Like Guil said, use the display: property to make sure the img is not displayed. :)
