How to set flexbox having unequal width of elements using CSS ?

The flex property in CSS is the combination of flex-grow, flex-shrink, and flex-basis property. It is used to set the length of flexible items. The flex property is much responsive and mobile friendly. It is easy to positioning child elements and the main container.
The margin doesn’t collapse with the content margins. Order of any element can be easily changed without editing the HTML section. But few times we have an unequal width of the element also that time you can design the whole things in the CSS section.

Syntax:

flex: number;

Note: Elements width depend on the other elements and screen of your window in this case.
