CSS CSS Flexbox Layout Understanding Flexbox Creating a Flex Container

There are two .css files used for this lesson. Why are we using two files? Can't we just use one and fit everything in?

We have two separate files that are linked to the html document. Why? Is one of them not enough? Has it been arranged this way because it's clearer?

I'd say the idea is that the styles on page.css are the non-flexbox properties and are just plain css to style the page. The flexbox styles are kept in flexbox.css. To answer your question, yes it has been arranged this way to put emphasis on the flexbox styles since this course is about learning flexbox and not focusing on ordinary css.

Thank you for the answer, very helpful.
