Learn Typography by Building a Nutrition Label - Step 22

Tell us what’s happening:
So in the next section we use flex to add horizontal spacing but I don’t understand how this works exactly. Wrapping a part of the text with span causes the wrapped part to shift to the right, but I wanna know why that happens. Why does span and display:flex, justify-content:space-between together cause the text to move to the right?
