HTML Build a Responsive Website Creating a Fluid Foundation Creating Flexible Margins

Using .cake as your context, convert the margins on .filling from pixels to percentages.

This was the question on the quiz.. When I used 640 from .cake to convert the margin on .filling I took 10/640=00156 = 1.56 %

what am I doing wrong?

Thank you

Hey, your calculations are correct. However you are rounding them up to two decimal figures when instead you need to just enter the whole percentage. So in your case it will 1.5625%, not 1.56%. Hope this helps.

Thanks Cameron, just didn't think more than 2 decimals was needed but that worked. Have a great day!
