Tailwindcss error when trying to build css

trying to learn tailwind but when I try to build the CSS I keep getting errors. I've followed multiple videos and every time I run into this error.

this is the error that I keep getting. $ npm run build

> tailwind build assest/styles.css -o public/styles.css

  throw e;
