From what I see at a first glance, I guess half means 50%, not 75%.

I'm sorry that you're still struggling with this question after so long.

I've reviewed the quiz and you're definitely on the right track with everything.

The correct answer to set the paragraph to half is in fact 50%.

p {
  width: 50%;

What's causing your error however is the width you're setting on the div. The only think you need to set on the div is the background-image, anything else might cause an error in other challenges.
