Transcript from the "Mondrian Painting Exercise Setup" Lesson

>> Jen: So let's keep on typing in some numbers here and you go on ahead and figure out the values for d, e, f, and g. Go on ahead and type in those values for grid row and grid column for d, e, f, and g. Five minutes, go ahead and go.

>> Speaker 2: Quick question before we go.
>> Jen: Sure.
>> Speaker 2: Justin's asking, for laying out in rows, do we need to include the second number or can we just say grid row 1 and grid row 2?
>> Jen: It depends, so it depends so you can say simply grid row 1 here for, say, letter a because we want it to take up basically one unit here in the row.

[00:00:41] But if you're going to have it go multiple units then you definitely have to call out the second number. And, again, because I am interested in somebody being able to read this code later, I think it's valuable to go on ahead and put in both numbers. So that somebody would be able to understand that code at a later point in time.

>> Jen: And it doesn't hurt anything. Okay, so five minutes, go on ahead and take a look at the values for d, e, f, and g, the grid row and the grid column values for all of those. And then we'll go over the answers.
