You've got the right idea, the syntax is just off a little. CSS uses colons to denote style rules.

.intro {
  font-size: 1.25em;
}

nope still not working

comes back with Bummer! Make sure you're selecting the intro class, and setting an em font-size value equal to 20px.

Silly reason - the challenge doesn't seem to like your trailing zero. Use 1.25 and it should work fine. Sorry about that!
