HTML Introduction to HTML and CSS Make It Beautiful With CSS Adding a Style to several Elements using Class

Trying to pad a CSS class and I'm getting an error from the work checker.

It says Bummer: You need to set padding to 15px on your <a> tags.

Is this a glitch or am I doing something wrong?

<!doctype html>
    <title>List Example</title>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="styles.css">

    <a class="social-links" href="#">Follow me on Twitter!</a>
    <a class="social-links" href="#">Send me an Email!</a>

.social-links {
  padding 15px;
  margin 10px;

You're missing colon on padding and margin in your CSS.

.social-links {
  padding: 15px;
  margin: 10px;

Ah! Thanks so much!
