If you have used Flexbox before in CSS, you might have used the shorthand property
flex: 1. And if you’re like me, you might have been using it but forgotten or not even known what this is shorthand for.

The shorthand translates to the following:
We won’t explain what each property does in detail because you have most likely used the non-shorthand versions before. But, we know this tells the browser we want an element to grow and shrink to the available space inside the Flexbox element.
