what is wrong with my solution?

This is one of the tasks from css selectors course. I can't see where is the mistake :(

style.css
/* Write the CSS in the media query below */

@media (min-width: 607px) {
  img{
    float:left;}


img:nth-child(n3+4) {
    clear:both;}
}
index.html
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
    <title>Selectors</title>
  <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1">
  <link rel="stylesheet" href="page.css">
  <link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css">
</head>
<body>
    <img src="thumb-forest.jpg" alt="">
    <img src="thumb-resort.jpg" alt="">
    <img src="thumb-trees.jpg" alt="">
    <img src="thumb-falls.jpg" alt="">
    <img src="thumb-view.jpg" alt="">
    <img src="thumb-sunset.jpg" alt="">
    <img src="thumb-lake.jpg" alt="">

Hey Marcin Kurek ! You'll want to put the value of the cycle size before the n. So instead of img:nth-child(n3+4) It should be :

img:nth-child(3n+4)

Check out the example here https://www.w3schools.com/cssref/sel_nth-child.asp

Don't get too down on yourself while you're learning Marcin Kurek. Syntax is one of the more challenging things to learn but will become more natural with practice. You're doing great and you're welcome
