What is a pixel

im sorry but i dont know what a pixel is. how do I know how many to use? and also were containers gone over in the web design course? i am really confused about a lot of things sorry

Pixels are small squares on your screen if you take a closer look on your computer’s screen you will see tiny squares.

Image a bunch straight lines going up and down. Then imagine a bunch of lines going left and right. You end up with a grid made up of a lot of tiny squares. EACH square is what we call a pixel.

When displays say 1920x1080,
it’s actually referring to how many lines. I believe if you multiply them, you get total pixels on device screen
