Syntax question for task 2/6 on final Sass basics code challenge

Hello everyone,

when attempting to complete the second task of the final code challenge the first line of my code would pass as:

@mixin square($size, $color: black) {

but not as:

@mixin square($size, $color: black;) {

the semicolon being the only difference. Is this a tree house code editor error or incorrect syntax? If it is incorrect syntax can you explain why the semicolon would not be acceptable?

That would be incorrect syntax. Arguments are separated by commas, and nothing should follow the last argument.
