Why is my answer incorrect? Top/bottom padding should be 15px, left/right should be 10px. padding: 15px 10px;

In the code challenge it says that I should have 15px for top and bottom padding and 10px for left and right padding. I have provided the following answers trying to get the answer to go through:

padding: 15px 10px; padding: 15px 10px 15px 10px;

neither of the answers have gone through for me. What am I doing wrong?

css/main.css
a {
  text-decoration: none;
}

#wrapper {
  max-width: 940px;
  margin: 0 auto;
}

#logo {
  text-align: center;
  margin: 0;
}

h1, h2 {
  color: #fff;
}

nav a {
  color: #fff;
}

nav a:hover {
  color: #32673f;
}

h1 {
  font-family: Changa One, sans-serif;
  font-size: 1.75em;
  font-weight: normal;
}

img {
  max-width: 100%;
}

#gallery {
  margin: 0;
  padding: 0;
  list-style: none;
}

#gallery li {
  float: left;
  width: 45%;
  margin: 2.5%;
  background-color: #f5f5f5;
  color: #bdc3c7;
}

nav ul {
  margin: 0 10px;
  padding: 0;
  list-style: none;
}

nav li {
  display: inline-block;
  font-weight: 800;
  padding: 15px 10px;
}

Hi Brittany,

It looks to be asking for you to Select the links inside the nav element....

You're almost there as your styles are correct but you're selecting the list items within the nav element instead.

Around line 19 there should be a nav a style which you can apply this too, e.g.

nav a {
  color: #fff;
  font-weight: 800;
  padding: 15px 10px;
}

Hope that helps :)
