Increasing font size

Does anyone have any ideas about where the increased font size comes from for the h1 he uses? Does he just pick a number? It seemingly isn't related to the typographic scale covered in a video in the previous section of this course.

He changed it on the css file. I think he already know what sizes he wants to use for the h1.

Ok but I would like to know how/why he chooses that size. Is it related to the typographic scale he initially decided on?

Normally you change font sizes to adapt to different screen sizes. U can't have the same size on smaller screens for example as it would be too big.
