Line Height Problems

Next, give intro a unitless line-height that's 1.6 times larger than the font-size value.

I'm adding the line-height without units, whats up?

<!DOCTYPE html>
    <title>Lake Tahoe</title>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="page.css">
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css">
    <header id="top" class="main-header">
      <span class="title">Journey Through the Sierra Nevada Mountains</span>
      <h1>Lake Tahoe, California</h1>
    <div class="primary-content t-border">
      <p class="intro">
        Lake Tahoe is one of the most <span>breathtaking attractions</span> located in California. It's home to a number of ski resorts, summer outdoor recreation, and tourist attractions. Snow and skiing are a significant part of the area's reputation.
      <a href="#more">Find out more</a>
    <footer class="main-footer">

I got it it was:

  font-size: 1.25em;
  line-height: 1.6;

I don't know how, but I lost the . for class selector before the .intro.

Hi Michael,

Maybe since you don't have the full font-size typed out, it's not able to fully run the check in the background? Not sure, but trying making it font-size instead of font.

Good luck!

Sorry, I originally had it as font-size instead of font. It didn't work and I accidentally left it just as font trying to combine it with the one property. font: 1.25em/2;` I also am pretty sure I calculated it right. 1.25 * 1.6 = 2... right?
