CSS Enhancing Design with CSS Styling Boxes Rounded Corners

Why doesn't the box-shadow work for me on the .callout links? Everywhere else works just fine!!!

No matter what I try, I can't get it to show up. I'm using Brave Browser, latest edition. Checked it on Chrome as well, no luck. This is the code I've got, which I'm pretty sure is the same as in the video.

.callout {
  display: block;
  width: 250px;
  padding: .25rem 1rem;
  margin: 1rem auto;
  border-radius: 20px/10px;
  box-shadow: 1px 2px 3px rbga(0,10,30,.5);
  background-image: linear-gradient(-30deg, #cc4e13, papayawhip);
  color: white;
  text-align: center;
  font-size: 1.25rem;

Update for anyone who comes across this: I replaced the rgba() value with a # value, that worked. Then I switched it back to the rgba() I have listed here, and it now works just fine. eyeroll at CSS, honestly...

Hi Joshua Graber

If you have a look at the original code above, there is a typo in the RGBa line. You have RBGa, which would cause the CSS to not work. So, HEX values or RGBa values both would work.
