You're on the right track, but Challenge Task 2 of 5 wants you to use the relative unit em to set a font-size that is equivalent to 20px. You can read more about CSS unit types on the MDN Page.

So in this case...

  • Try using em instead of px to set the font-size.
  • If the parent element's font-size is 16px, what relative value of em would be equivalent to 20px?

If you still find yourself stuck, let me know and we can walk through a solution. Good luck, and happy coding!
