What on earth is the point in this exercise? I understand the theory in separation you don’t want any one component doing everything. But create. new file and copy the existing code into it so you know have two files with the exact same code? Could someone explain me what it is i’m supposed to understand with this exercise please.

i don’t understand i’m working my way through the React course and honestly some parts are so poorly wplained I’m looking on the official site and googling to figure out bits out. Admittedly I know some Vue but this course isn’t that good so far. i hope it is improved in the future.
