Sobin Sebastian box-sizing is the method through which we can adjust the width of an element, allowing us to include padding and border within a predefined size measure. With a box-sizing property declared in the CSS, if you added a 10px border to an object with a width of 150px, it would remain 150px rather than expanding to 160px.
