Question about Centering
why is it important to use both of these together ?
- justify-content: center;
- align-items: center
Does it make to use either justify-content or align-items?

More specifically :
justify-content is for the main-axis ( horizontally if flex-direction: row, and vertically if flex-direction: column)
align-items is for the cross-axis ( vertically if flex-direction: row, and horizontally if flex-direction: column)
Hope i could help you.
One aligns the items horizontally, the other vertically.
Here is a great explanation on stackoverflow.
