basically, to turn any container, like a DIV , a NAV, etc, you need to use the display property to the value of "flex", then you'll be able to apply the flex properties to their children.

Here is an example for a nav the html code:

nav a{

Hi Deon Cole

flex is not a CSS property. To create a flexbox container, you would use the display property and the flexbox value. Take a moment and review this video on how to create a flexbox container (Guil describes the CSS starting at ~1:42).
