Summary

<div class="container">
  <div class="row">
    <div class="col">
      col
    </div>
    <div class="col-6">
      col-6
    </div>
    <div class="col">
      col
    </div>
  </div>
</div>

Details

You can modify the col class by adding a dash and a number at the end. You can use the numbers 1 through 12 (e.g., col-1, col-2, col-3, all the way up to col-12).

By adding a number to the column class, you are specifying the size of that column. Remember, Bootstrap is based on a 12-column system. If you use the class col-12, that column will take up the entire row. If you use col-6, that column will take up half of the row, and the other columns will fill in the remaining space.
