The property is flex-grow, If all items have flex-grow set to 1, the remaining space in the container will be distributed equally to all children. If one of the children has a value of 2, the remaining space would take up twice as much space as the others. { flex-grow: 1; }

flex-grow: 1;

I completed the challenge w/ this code: .row { display: flex; } .column { flex-direction: column; flex-grow: -1; }

/* Complete the challenge by writing CSS below */

.row { display: flex; }

.column { flex-grow: 1; align-items: center; } .primary { flex-grow: 2; }
