CSS CSS Basics (2014) Understanding Values and Units Styling the Intro Paragraph

Multiplying 1.6 x font-size (1.25em) = 2 right? I'm doing that and it says it's wrong.

Using just 2 is unitless too and it's saying I need to put a unitless number.

<!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.

Hi there! It's not asking you to make the line-height 1.6 x 1.25em, it's asking for just a unitless 1.6. The 1.6 will do the multiplication for you as really, you can't be sure what 1.25em even is. It will be based on the default font-size of the parent.

It is simply looking for:

.intro {
  font-size: 1.25em;
  line-height: 1.6;

Hope this helps! :sparkles:

Try adding 1.6 as your value. Adding 2 simply makes the line height twice the size of the font rather than just 1.6. Nothing wrong with the maths but the CSS needs to be specific. :)
