Add a padding of 20px to the top and bottom of the div with the class box. Then, add 40 pixels of padding to the left and right sides.

Your selector isn't using the specified class.

Many thanks!! :)

Thanks but doesnt work - it wants "add a top margin of 50px" to the div...its in the Front end development/CSS/Box model....section....

OK Solved....few steps before I went with div / but should have gove with the class name of the div...THX anyways :)
