Column and Grid?

Hello, from Japan.

I'm taking the "working with grid" lecture and I have a question. In this lecture, he said "our logo here for Smells Like Bakin is contained to 4 column in our grid. I can not understand what this means. What is column and grid? Can I see it on the browser?

Thank you,

u will understand better if you consider grid as your page and each page can be divided into 12 columns in total (like 12 vertical lines) and "smells like baskin" logo is occupying 4 columns of ypur page and you are left with 8 columns now. so rest of your image or text can be adjusted in the remaining 8 columns and if you add omega class to it, the remaining text won't overflow to next line.

Hope that helps!!!!
