Hi Glenn,

You are super close. You don't need the "," in between ".main-nav" and "li".

If you use a comma in between it would select the "main-nav" class and the "li" elements. When you remove the comma it means that you are selecting the "li's" within the "main-nav" like this:

.main-nav li{
  display: inline-block;
}

``

Happy Coding!
