My solution; are there any problems?

Hi there,

Below is my code for this challenge:

 .secondary {
    width: 40%; 
    float: left;

  .primary {
    width: 60%;
    float: right;

.col {
       padding-right: 1em;
       padding-left: 1em;

Are there any problems approaching the floats this way as apposed to Guil's?

It seems ok, just wanted to see if this actually feasible in other projects.

Thanks, James.

Nope! Your way is just a different way of doing it and for this particular project, it works.

I did it the same way...

.primary { width: 50%; float: left; padding: 20px; } .secondary{ width:50%; float: left; padding: 20px; }
