Task 3, in CSS basics lesson on line height - Instructions say to multiply font size (1.25) by 1.6 but can't get right

Im working on the line height lesson in the CSS basic lesson. The code challenge is to determine a line height for a font size of 1.25. The line height is to be 1.6 time the font size. Every answer I've put in has been wrong so Im not sure what Im doing wrong. I've tried multiplying 1.25 by 1.6 and the px value by 1.6 and it is wrong. can anyone give me any insight into what Im doing wrong here?

Hi there! This part of the challenge wants you to adjust the line-height with a unitless multiplier. We can do this like this:

  line-height:  1.6;

Hope this helps! :sparkles
