Explanation for the _page.scss

There seems to be no explanation whatsoever why and how this file _page.scss is linked with the whole project.

Guill uses:

@include background(radial-gradient(top, #3d69b5, #1a335e));

and gets output in his screen.css file. I don't get the prefixed lines of code in my css, despite the fact that in CMD it says that the file has been overwritten. I am stuck in this step of the lesson for 2 days now.

For some reason I didn't notice the _page.scss file being included in screen.scss

looks like i'm not the only one confused about this. nothing in the project files for this lesson either...

seems like Treehouse missed a few details...

Same thing held true with the _rest.scss. Jumps from one video to the next without explaining to create these files and include them in the screen.scss. I only pick it up looking at his file structure. Also now the _reset.scss is gone? Maybe my awareness is running on low.
