Why does the function not produce the result?

The application of the function seems correct

h1 is specified font size uses the function the value of 60ps is given as a parameter


It doesn't seem to be correct.

I've checked for spacing and spelling, and the syntax appears correct.

$base-font-size: 16px;

// Write your function here
@function px-to-rem ($target, $context: $base-font-size) {
  @return ($target / $context) * 1rem;


h1 {
  font-size: px-to-rem (60px);

Hi there, Alexandra Velez ! You're doing terrific and this comes down to one space. Inside the rule where you call the px-to-rem you may not have a space between px-to-rem and the (60px). So you will need px-to-rem(60px) instead :smiley:

Hope this helps! :sparkles:
