Question on box-shadow [Resolved]

I'v tried this .box { box-shadow: 10px 10px 5px #222 15px; } But it says: "Bummer! Make sure your box-shadow values exactly match the instructions." Can anyone please help me?

Thanks.

Chase James - The reason that your answer didn't work was because there is a particular order the values must be specified in.

You can read about the specifics for box-shadow in over on html dog.

EVO R - I've removed your code, because here on the Treehouse forum we try to give hints to point the user in the right direction rather than just giving them the answer.

Remember the goal of these forums is not to get a user past a particular code challenge back to get the user to learn how to solve their own issues.

James Barnett I agree, thats right approach! I should "rubber duck" more often ;) This is how I learn.
