What is "the property and value that forces any padding and border widths into its total width and height"?

Sorry, I don't understand what I am supposed to do in this last step... Help!

Hi, I think this may help: "The box-sizing property is used to tell the browser what the sizing properties (width and height) should include. Should they include the border-box? Or just the content-box (which is the default value of the width and height properties)? Value border-box: The width and height properties (and min/max properties) includes content, padding and border, but not the margin. From: w3schools

box-sizing: border-box

Thank You!
