    Cant understand min/max width , height

    Hello, i`ve gotten into web design recently and im having some problems with understanding the principles of max.min . For exemple , why would i need theese thinks when i can use only the simple height/width ?
    Ive tired to understand better theese things ( Imgur: The most awesome images on the Internet ) but still i cant find the diference .. Also I know that min-height for exemple is the minimum height that a div ( for exemple) can have .

    The difference comes in when the viewport changes size.

    If you have a min-width set on an image, it won't allow the image to get too small. So, say you have an image set to 50% width, but you don't want it to shrink below 200px wide. You'd set the min-width to 200px. If the viewport gets below 400px wide, the image would then take up more than 50% of the width.

    There are a million other use cases, but in general, min/max values are used to control the size of something in different environments.

    I haven`t though about using that way , from your answer i guess the propriety is used more on making responsive website .. which is why i didnt got it at first ( im not that far yet, im still learning ) .
