Wrong Answer?

Is it just me, or is the first answer 1%? For some reason it keeps marking my answer wrong, and I am pretty sure I am correct. If not, please let me know if I missed something.

Hi Jason,

The correct answer is 1.25%. Your context is .icing which has 100% width = 800px. You want to convert 10px margin to % so 10/800 = 0,0125. Now 0,0125 * 100 = 1.25%.

Sounds like you are dropping a few decimal places.
