CSS CSS Basics (2014) Understanding Values and Units Styling the Intro Paragraph

What do they mean by 1.6 times larger than the font-size value? Do they just mean 1.25 multiplied by 1.6?

I tried putting 2 as the line-height value which would be 1.25 multiplied by 1.6 and that was wrong. Then I tried converting the 1.25em into pixels which would be so then multiplied that by 1.6 which is 32 and I am still incorrect. I also didn't use units like the instructions said to do.

Hi Kaitlyn,

Don't need to multiplied by 1.6x, you just have to declare 1.6 on line-height larger than font-size value.

.intro {
  font-size: 1.25em;
  line-height: 1.6;

I think you are missing semi colon.
