HTML How to Make a Website Customizing Colors and Fonts Use Color in CSS

Why select the <a> tags twice, one for text-decoration and other for color? Can't we use one rule for both properties?

Can't we merge these two rules into one?

a { text-decoration: none; }


a { color: #6ab47b; }

a { 
text-decoration: none; 
color: #6ab47b;

Thank you!
