The main header and main content is not at the page center

I follow the code instructions but the cannot center the whole page, except only main footer. I'll post the style.css and index.html below


/* ================================= Base Element Styles ==================================== */

body { line-height: 1.6; color: #3a3a3a; } h1 { margin: 0; } a { color: #fff; text-decoration: none; }

/* ================================= Base Layout Styles ==================================== / / ---- Navigation ---- */ .name { margin: 0; }

/* ---- Layout Containers ---- */ .containder { width: 70%; margin: 0 auto; } .main-header { background: #3acec2; padding: 1em 0; }

.main-footer { text-align: center; padding: 2em 0; background: #d9e4ea; }

/* ---- Page Elements ---- */

Hey Hai, the issue is that in your CSS file under Layout Containers you are attempting to style the class ".containder". It is just a simple spelling error, as it should be ".container". Hope this helps!
