When targeting an element with a type selector

2 Answers

//Type selectors are the same thing as html tags. 
//They are used to target a tag in html and style that tag
//example
header{
padding:0px;
margin:0px;
color:white;
}

//this will apply the following style to the header tag. ///Thanks

When they talk about "type" in selectors, it's the same thing as the HTML tag name.
