Why is it wrong? Is It an Issue?(Stage 11 Transitions and Transforms 2D Transforms Quiz)

As I mentioned in the title in the 2D Transforms Quiz, I think the answer to the question "Which of the following will position the transform-origin at the bottom-right corner of an element?" is "transform-origin: right bottom;". Is it wrong?

It shows me wrong!

Hi Philip,

transform-origin: right bottom; should be a correct answer also. Both of those keywords convert to 100% and their order does not matter.

I think it's a good habit to get into to always specify horizontal first when using keywords because when you use length or percentage values you have to specify horizontal first.

You can look at this mdn page for more info: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/CSS/transform-origin

Good Answer!

It's C, right bottom is not correct order

Yes, I know that it's correct, too, but shouldn't B also work?

B not work, it is not correct order value, it is must be bottom right

But normally the first value affects the X-Axis and the second the Y-Axis. Here at 3:40 is an example. Guil types center top and not top center.

It apply for perspective, not for transform property, x-axis is center and y-axis is top are correct, but transform property are position, not perspective. Sorry for bad english

Ok, Thanks!
