CSS CSS Layout Basics Page Layout with the Float Property Footer Layout with Floats

The challenge is to give the footer the class that clear all floats. I don't know why this isn't working.

<footer class="clearfix">

/* Complete the challenge by writing CSS below */

.clearfix::after {
  content: "";
  display: table;
  clear: both;
.footer-nav {
  float: left;
.logo {
  float: right;
.footer-nav li {
  float: leftk;

I found the problem. there was a typo in a different rule that I didn't notice.

.footer-nav li { float: leftk; }

Barry, The clearfix class usually requires both the ::before pseudo-element and the ::after pseudo-element included in the style definition. Try:

.clearfox::after {
  content: "";
  display: table;
  clear: both;

Here's the article that explains the clearfix hack, it's been pretty universally adopted as the "right" way to do it: http://nicolasgallagher.com/micro-clearfix-hack/ Hope this helps you!
