Hey there,

you have to use an each loop and loop through a list containing the three specified colors (red, blue and green), so basically it's just three comma-separated values, and save the value inside of a $color variable.

Inside of the each loop you have to select a class that's called red/blue/green_box depending on the value of $color in the iteration. Don't forget to interpolate the variable when you select the class.

Inside of the rule you now just have to assign the current value of the $color variable to the background-color property of the corresponding class.

Here is the working code for the second task.

@each $color in red, blue, green {
  .#{$color}_box {
    background-color: $color;

I hope that helps, good luck! :)
