CSS CSS Basics (2014) Enhancing the Design With CSS Media Queries

Set it's font-size to 5rem. I followed the task but it still says it's wrong?

I seemed to have followed the instructions to this task but it keeps saying that I didn't specify the font size of h1 correctly. Is there something I'm missing? Is there math involved here?

Thanks for the help!

Hey Dominique,

The problem here is this line:

  .h1 {
   font-size: 5rem;

Here you are trying to reference all the html elements that contain a class called 'h1'. The reason here being that there is a fullstop prior to h1. The solution here is to remove the full stop OR if you want to refer to just the specific page title element. Try like this

.page-title {
  font-size: 5rem;

Hope this helps, Happy coding Dominique!

Thanks for the advice, Cody! And you're right, there was a problem with that line...I had to remove the period from "h1" and then the task was completed.

That's the second time I made a goof like that. :/
