Hi. If no margin is configured, what is the value of the margin that is established by default? In the exercise, you see the 3 red buttons at the end of the page with a separation between them when you do not have the margin set. Thanks in advance


In Instruction #2 it asked me to set the margin to 10px. I did so and I noticed no difference.

Did I miss something?
