Help with whitespace between divs

Help with whitespace between divs

#1

Hey everyone, my first post on here and this is probably a massive rookie mistake that i’m overthinking, but I can’t figure out why i have this massive whitespace at the start of my second line…can anyone help me? Also this is my first time ever asking for help with my coding so I hope I did this right.

Here’s what it looks like:

And here’s the code:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
	<head>
		<title>Colors!</title>

	<style>

		

		#shadow{
			box-shadow: 0 10px 20px rgba(0,0,0,0.19), 0 6px 6px rgba(0,0,0,0.23);
		    border-radius: 50%;
		}

		.circle {
			text-align: center;
			height: 200px;
			width: 200px;
			border-radius: 50%;
			margin: 0 10px 10px 0;
			
		}

		p {
			padding-top: 60px;
		}

		.black {
			background-color: #000000;
			color: #FFFFFF;
			float: left;
		}

		.gray {
			background-color: #808080;
			float: left;
			
		}

		.white {
			background-color: #ffffff;
			color: #000000;
			float: left;
			border: 1px black solid;
		}

		.red {
			background-color: #FF0000;
			float: left;
		}

		.purple {
			background-color: #800080;
			float: left;
		}

		.pink {
			background-color: #FFC0CB;
			float: left;
			
		}

		.orange {
			background-color: #FFA500;
			float: left;
		}

		.yellow {
			background-color: #FFFF00;
			float: left;
		}

		.green {
			background-color: #008000;
			float: left;
		}

		.blue {
			background-color: #0000FF;
			float: left;
		}

I bet it has to do with the float: left; on all the circles - I would try removing those, and probably add the display: inline-block; property

side note: the id attribute is supposed to be unique

Yeah just change the ‘float: left’ to ‘display: inline-block’ and it will work fine :smiley:
