More Examples


Odd and even are watchwords that can be utilized to coordinate kid components whose file is odd or even (the list of the primary kid is 1).

Here, we determine two distinctive foundation hues for odd and even p elements:

p:nth-of-type(odd) {
    background: #ff0000;

p:nth-of-type(even) {
    background: #0000ff;

Using a formula (an + b). Description: a represents a cycle size, n is a counter (starts at 0), and b is an offset value.

Here, we specify a background color for all p elements whose index is a multiple of 3:

p:nth-of-type(3n+0) {
    background: #ff0000;
