Undefined variable: "$size"

I don't know why I keep getting the undefined variable: "$size" error. I can't see what's wrong with it.

This is what I got following the instructions and it passed:

@mixin button ($color, $size) {
  background: $color;
  width: $size;
  height: $size / 2;
}

.menu_button {
  @include button (#369, 50px);
}

Thank you! That worked. I misplaced the height.
