It's a pretty straightforward challenge just like you can use "color" to adjust the color of the text, you can use the "background-blend-mode" to blend the background.

example 1. If I wanted to apply to blend using the "exclusion" property, I would write

background-blend-mode: exclusion;

example 2. if I wanted to use the "hard-light" property it would look like

background-blend-mode: hard-light;

So, in this challenge, the teacher wants you to do that with the "multiply" property. Hope that helps, and let me know if it gives you any more difficulty.
