Mixin Include

The question is: Use the mixin on a class called .menu_button. Set the background color to be #369 and the size to be 50px.

My code is attached below ---

<!DOCTYPE html>
  <title>Sass Basics - Code Challenge</title>
  <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="page-style.css">
  <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="style.css">
  <h1>Hampton's Blog</h1>
  <a class="menu_button" href="#">
  <div class="entry">
    <h1>Great Music</h1>
      <div class="content">
            Here are some of my favorite bands from years past and present: Belle and Sebastian, Pixies, and Daft Punk. Listening to music allows me to focus when I'm programming.

/* Write your SCSS code below. */
@mixin button($color, $size) {
  background: $color;
  width: $size;
  height: $size / 2;

.menu-button {
@include button(50px);

Make sure you pass your background color in through the mixin as well

Sorry, I'm lost could you explain further with an example.

Sure, you're already passing in a size of 50px, you also need to pass in a value of #369 into your mixin arguments. You can see in your mixin, you defined your arguments to be color, size, so pass your color argument in first, than your size, and make sure to remove the background-color: #369 style, as that won't be needed anymore because background is defined in the mixin.

Does that make more sense, I don't want to just write the code out.
