Setting ... border TOPLEFT and BOTTOMRIGHT radius.

Here is the initial code I wrote .main-nav li:first-child { border: none; border-top-left-radius: 5px; border-bottom-right-radius: 5px; }

the instructions tell me to set the radius to 5px ... then I get the BUMMER prompt tellng me to be sure I entered the correct values for the radius.

I then took another look at the HTML and since its the only ... li ... element in the HTML I figured I would try this

li:first-child { border: none; border-top-left-radius: 5px; border-bottom-right-radius: 5px; }

neither work and I get the same ol' bummer ... be sure to enter the correct values for the radius.

I tried looking at the MDN / CSS documentation re watched the video

I even tried using 2 values as the MDN suggests could be done.

style.css
/* Complete the challenge by writing CSS below */
li:first-child {
  border: none;
  border-top-left-radius: 5px;
  border-bottom-right-radius: 5px;
}

Hi Nathaniel,

For task 1 the instructions are saying top-left and bottom-left. You're doing bottom-right.
