"The Box Model" Challenge 3 of 3 [Resolved ]

Hi there, I'm new to the forums, but I will start with a problem :(

When I'm asked to add a top margin of 50px to the div, I type

div {
    margin-top: 50px;
}

And it says "Please check the top-margin value in your CSS" . I don't understand. Should I write instead

div {
    margin: 50px 0px 0px 0px; 
}

? Thanks for the help.

I'm currently running into the same problem as you, however, I just passed that challenge a very short time ago. I would think both of those would work, but neither of them give a right answer. Hopefully someone else can shed some light on why it's not working. =/

It's strange, could you tell me how you passed the challenge ? Did you skip it ?

Resolved, I just had to change the div to .box, so it would give :

.box {
   margin-top: 50px;
}
