Not quite sure what's being asked here. Can someone help me out?

I've tried a few different things.. it's saying to change line 9 in the html. Again, not really sure what it's asking.

/* Complete the challenge by writing CSS below */

/* Clearfix ---------------------------------- */

.group:after {
  content: "";
  display: table;
  clear: both;

.content-lodging {

.content-traveling {
<!DOCTYPE html>
    <title>Lake Tahoe</title>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="page.css">
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css">

        <h3>From Tents to Resorts</h3>
          Lake Tahoe is full of wonderful places to stay. You have the ability to sleep in the outdoors in a tent, or relax like a king at a five star resort. Here are our top three resorts:
          <li><a href="#hotels">Lake Tahoe Resort Hotel</a></li>
          <li><a href="#resorts">South Lake Tahoe Resorts</a></li>
          <li><a href="#lodging">Tahoe Ski Resort Lodging</a></li>

      <div class="content-traveling">
        <img src="mtn-landscape.jpg" alt="Mountain Landscape">
        <h3>Pack Accordingly</h3>
          One of most important things when it comes to traveling through the great outdoors is packing accordingly. Here are a few tips:
          <li>Bring layers of clothing</li>
          <li>Pack sunscreen</li>
          <li>Carry extra water just in case</li>
          <li>Pack light</li>
        </div><!-- End .secondary-content -->

        <footer class="main-footer">
            <p>All rights reserved to the state of <a href="#">California</a>.</p>
            <a href="#top">Back to top &raquo;</a>

You can just add it to the existing class.

<div class="secondary-content t-border group">

In this example .group is your clearfix solution. Use that class on the required div and you should be good to go.

Does it matter that there is already a class selector in the div? I tried adding another class of group and it's still not working.

<div class="secondary-content t-border" class="group">

I'm having the same issue Niki is, applying

<div class="secondary-content t-border" class="group">

Doesn't seem to be working.
