What's wrong with this code?

Please check the code. It requires me to add the .group class to the main-header in the float layout challenge. I try adding 'class="group"' to the main-header element.

index.html
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
    <title>Floats</title>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="page.css">
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css">
</head>
<body>
    <div class="main-wrapper">  
        <header class="main-header" class="group">
            <h1 class="main-logo"><a href="#">My Work</a></h1>
            <ul class="main-nav">
                <li><a href="#">Design</a></li>
                <li><a href="#">Coding</a></li>
                <li><a href="#">Writing</a></li>
                <li><a href="#">Hire Me!</a></li>
            </ul>
        </header>
        <div class="primary col">
            <h1>I'm a Designer</h1>
            <p>I design beautiful user interfaces, then bring them to life with HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. I love including personal photographs of nature, people and everyday things in my designs.</p>
            <p>If you need a front-end designer for your next project, <a href="#">take a look at my work</a>, then <a href="#">get in touch</a>!</p>
        </div>
        <div class="secondary col">
            <h2>I Also Write</h2>
            <p>I like teaching others about the latest web in technology. So when I'm not designing or coding websites &amp; apps, you'll find me writing <a href="#">articles for my blog</a>.</p>
        </div>
        <div class="extra">

        </div>
    </div>
</body>
</html>

No need to add another class. All you have to do is add space within the same quotation mark and add the word group inside.

<header class="main-header" class="group">

it should be like this

<header class="main-header group" >

.group {
    float:left;
    width:40%;
    margin: 0 auto;
}

I didn't realize that I could just add space within the same question mark in order to creat a new class. Thanks!
