Clearing Floats

Hi Guys, i just wanted to confirm if this is possible? instead of using the below code which is : .group:after { content: ""; display: table; clear: both; Can we just use "clear-both" in secondary content class?

As far as I understand it, clear:both will make the an element clear the floated element whereas the clearfix is used only to ensure that an element encloses items.

I.e. if you want to put a p after a floated img you would use clear:both and if you want a div to grow to enclose the image then you would use a clearfix.

Hope this helps!
