This answer is not working on this challenge. No matter how I use the selector

I'm pretty sure that this is the correct answer, for some reason, the Challenge console is not taking it. Is there something wrong with my code?

i've tried

.main-content > p{font-weight:bold:}; .main-content p{ font-weight: bold; }; .main-content > p{ font-weight: bold; }; .main-content > p{ font-weight:bold: };

this is driving me crazy, as I've been on this for the last 2 hours trying to get the code to submit. I also tried clearing cache, restarting browser etc.. Any help would be appreciated it.

/* Complete the challenge by writing CSS below */
header img{

.main-content p{
  font-weight: bold;

Declaration blocks don't end with semicolons so remove the semicolons after the closing brackets.
