Do you remember the old days as a child when you had to learn how to write the basic letters of the alphabet by writing the perfectly between two lines? Its like what kindergartners do when learning how to write the letter AaBbCc etc.

Imagine that you are keeping the letters the same size but adjusting the height between those two lines. That is what line height is. Its the difference between:

........

AA

.........

And

...............

AA

..............

The height is different between those two lines.

Okay not going to lie, treehouse isn't letting me add extra spaces so just imagine that the dotted lines got further apart from the AA's in the middle
