Hi,

It asks: "Next, give intro a unitless line-height that's 1.6 times larger than the font-size value."

So you just need to say that you want the font size to be 1.6 times the size of the font. You do not need to calculate anything but just add the CSS below. At the moment, you are saying you want the line height to be twice the size of the font size.

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