/* ================================= Media Queries ==================================== */

@media (min-width: 789px) {

.wrap {
    min-height: calc(100vh - 89px);
}

.container {
    width: 85%;
    max-width: 1150px;
    margin: 0 auto;
}

.main-nav {
    float: right;
}

.name,
.main-nav li {
    float: left;
}

.main-nav li {
    margin-left: 12px;
}

/* ---- Columns ---- */

.col {
    float: right;
    padding-left: 1em;
    padding-right: 1em;
}

.primary {
    width: 60%;
}

.secondary {
    width: 40%;
}

/* ------------- */

.feat-img {
    width: 300px;
    float: left;
    margin-top: 5px;
    margin-right: 25px;
    margin-bottom: 25px;
    padding: 10px;
    border: solid 1px #d9e4ea;
}

.clearfix::after {
    content: "";
    display: table;
    clear: both;
}

} why is it that both primary col and the secondary col share the float: left declaration but secondary column appears on the right left side and the other appears on the right side? I thought that you had to float the column you wanted on the left side to the left and the column you wanted on the right side to the right.
