is this not correct?

.box{ background-color: #387ABC; background-image: url('img/mike.png') no repeat; }

You better write this code in that code challenge:

.box{
  background-color:#387ABC;
  background-image: url(img/mike.png);
  background-repeat: no-repeat;
  background-position: center;
} 

Hope it works with you

I think you have to put a separate property for background-repeat:

background-repeat: no-repeat;

or you can use the background property for everything:

background: #387ABC url('img/mike.png') no-repeat;
