CSS CSS Selectors Advanced Selectors :nth Pseudo-Class Challenge

My solution isn't working

I added what I think is the right code to solve the challenge but it didn't solve it. Can you help me and put me in the right direction?

/* Write the CSS in the media query below */

@media (min-width: 607px){
  float: left;
  clear: left;

Hi there,

I've got a couple things that should get you going in the right direction:

  • on your img selector, you don't need to use nth-child at all - we want to float all of them, so you just need "img" there

  • for the second step, you're really close, and just need one small change to your nth-child formula. Here's a hint: the formula for nth-child is nth-child(an + b), where a is the spacing of your selection (every third child) and b is where you start (fourth child). The numbers you're using are already correct!

Good luck!
