How do I use grid-template-columns: repeat(100, 1fr); without having to type out 100 classes for each item manually?

Tell us what’s happening:
The code works. But I have a question not answered in the lesson.

Describe your issue in detail here.
My issue is I am learning how to use the repeat function with the grid-template-columns command which looks something like this…

grid-template-columns: repeat(100, 1fr);

What I don’t understand is how do I generation 100 of the items, item1-item100, without specifically doing it long hand a 100 times.

  **Your code so far**


.container {
  font-size: 40px;
  min-height: 300px;
  width: 100%;
  background: LightGray;
  display: grid;
  /* Only change code below this line */

  grid-template-columns: repeat(100, 1fr);

  /* Only change code above this line */
  grid-template-rows: 1fr 1fr 1fr;
  grid-gap: 10px;

<div class="container">
<div class="item1">1</div>
<div class="item2">2</div>
<div class="item3">3</div>
<div class="item4">4</div>
<div class="item5">5</div>

Challenge: Reduce Repetition Using the repeat Function

Link to the challenge:

with grid you are only setting the container to lay its contents out as a grid. In the snippet they just used those classes to illustrate the different items. Even with no classes set, it will still layout the items in the grid(1st children of parent element, I believe) according to your grid-template.
