Issues on putting images side by side.

In the video "Applying Media Queries", Anwar was showing us how to put images side by side. I've followed along, but when I insert the below classes in CSS, nothing happens. I've must've messed up somewhere, but I don't know where (I did not change anything on HTML).

.column { display: inline-block; width: 48%; margin-right: -4px; }

.column:first-child { margin-right: calc(4% - 4px); margin-bottom: 0; }

There's a syntax error at line 116 of style.css where the closing brace for the .callout rule is missing. This causes the entire media query section to be ignored.

Also, the setting in the video in the .column rule for width is 48%, just as you show above. But on line 147 of the file it is set at 50% instead.
