Problem? Convert the padding on .cake from pixels to percentages.

I divided the

.cake {
    background-color: #f8748f;
    width: 85.714285714%; /*600px*/
    margin: 1.428571429%;
    padding: 10px;

I divided the width of the cake to the 10px padding and tried numbers of way's, but always say's wrong (What the Hell)!

Remember to move the decimal point on your answer down two places.

I had a problem with this one, the method for converting the padding is slightly different to converting the margin.

After pulling my hair out for a while I found that the method for converting padding is in the comments at the top of the code challenge window.

If you're getting a repeating decimal answer make sure to round up to the nearest tenth of a percentage.

I've tried everything and nothing. Still wrong
