Not understanding the question

Next, give intro a unitless line-height that's 1.6 times larger than the font-size value. The font-size is 1025em in this exercise. I have tried everything i can think of and re watched the video again. Still not getting what it is asking. I have tried multiplying the em with 1.6 did not work. Not sure what else it is looking for.

Where did you get that 1025em?

this is how it goes:

.intro { 
 font-size: 1.25em;
 line-height: 1.6em;

Thanks. I figured it out after i asked the question. My font-size was showing 1025em instead of 1.25em then i just had to add the 1.6em to it. Then it worked.

Hi, The unitless sizes are just the number, no px after it.

Also, check your font-size value because 1025 is a huge multiplier. There's probably a missing decimal.
