Responsive Web Development

} .container { max-width: 800px; }

  .icing {
    background-color: #B4C34F;
    width: 100%; /*800px*/
    padding: 10px;
  .cake {
    background-color: #f8748f;
    width: 80%; /*640px*/
    margin: 1.25%;
    padding: 10px;
  .filling {
    background-color: #4FB69F;
    width: 75%; /*480px*/
    margin: 10px;
    padding: 10px;

In the above code, I am to convert the .filling margin pixels into percentages. The context is the .cake. I tried doing 10px / 640px and got 1.56%. This seems to be incorrect. Need of some help, please!

never mind, it was because i rounded the answer. thanks anyway

I ran into this yesterday, too :) Some of those checkers they use are a little too strict :)
