Select the element with the ID gallery. Then, remove the margin, padding, and bullet points. I have coded it like this and it won't accept it... not sure why?? gallery ul { list-style-type: none; padding: 0px; margin: 0px; }

Hey Jamie,

To target an element using its ID you need to use the hash symbol or pound sign (#) – whatever you want to call it. So your selector would be #gallery. Also, you're targeting an unordered list inside of the element, and you don't need to do that. The code should ultimately look like this:

#gallery {
  margin: 0;
  padding: 0;
  list-style: none;
}

To select the ID, you have to use the hash symbol. So, if you type it as: #gallery ul {blah: blah blah;}, it will select the HTML item with the ID of "gallery".

Thanks! I completely over looked that.
