Example

Odd and even are keywords that can be used to match child elements whose index is odd or even (the index of the first child is 1).

Here, we specify two different background colors for odd and even p elements:

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

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

Example

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-last-of-type(3n+0) {
    background: #ff0000;
}
