Need help on Responsive Website Creating >> Creating Flexible Margins


I'm having trouble getting past this second question of converting a px margin to %. I believe I'm doing the equation right, which is: Target / Context = Result 10px / 640px = .0156 = 1.56% but it's not working. I'm dividing by the context which is the next box up, the cake width of 640px.

Any thoughts? http://screencast.com/t/g7TxhdWU
