Sass stage 2, Extending Selectors, question 1 of 3.

Here's the challenge:

Style the class .animals to have a background of #369. Use "extend" to apply those styles to a new class, .dogs.

I have:

.animals { background: #369; }

.dogs { @extent .animals; }

Is that not correct?

I get "Bummer! The .dogs div should have a background-color of #369. Did you have the .dogs class extend the .animals class?"

I swear I have it right, but have no clue what I'm doing wrong..?

Thanks in advance!

Hi jack,

You've got the concept correct--there's just a typo in your code.

It should be '@extend' not '@extent'.


.aniamls { background: #369; }

.dogs { @extend .animals; }

I'm am passing this which i beleave it's the same. excluding the typo.

Not working, any advice??
