If you are working on the first question of the challenge, Convert the padding on .cake from pixels to percentages. the current pixel size for the .cake class is 10px. That would be the Target value in the formula from the course. The Context value would be 600px as stated in the comments for the width property in the cake class.

The formula is Target / Context = Result, right? So 10px / 600 px = 0.0166666666667. Multiply by 100 to convert to percent. You wind up with 1.666666667%.

Happy coding,

Since the user linked us to the code challenge (under related content in the sidebar) what we need in addition to the code they are using is to know which step of the code challenge they are on.
