sass ampersand code challenge

We want to add an exception for <a> tags that are are in the <div> with a class of .footer: those links should be purple. Use the post-selector ampersand to achieve this.

I am not understanding where this post-ampersand is supposed to go.

'''scss .footer{ a{ color: purple; } }''' This gives me the desired result, so what other way must I write this, using the ampersand, to satisfy this challenge?

Try this:

    div.footer &{

Thanks Dave, I appreciate you. I will remember the tips.

Ok just looking at that I realized what's going on. That is pretty exciting! Thank you for the clarity. Now I will need to work on my markdown. Lol

No problem...with markdown the easiest thing is just to add four spaces before each line and ensure you have a blank line between your normal text and your code. Otherwise, you might have some overflow or cut off.
