Images Side by Side in HTML/CSS

I cannot believe I am asking this question, but how can I get these two images to go side by side on the same level? I set both of the image containers to display: inline-block; and it is not placing them side by side, yet one above the other.

Live example:

particlesJS("particles-js", {
    "particles": {
        "number": {
            "value": 80,
            "density": {
                "enable": true,
                "value_area": 800
            }
        },

            "value": "#b3ab7d"
        },

            },

                "nb_sides": 5
            },

                "src": "img/github.svg",
                "width": 100,

            }

Answer

You can use this code:

Add one flex container, float to left and edit the width and height value:

//Style.css
.container {
    display: flex;
    position: relative;
    width: 100%;
}
.img_container {
    width: 50%;
    float: left;
}
#img1 {
    height: 100%;
    width: 100%;
}
#img2 {
    height: 100%;
    width: 100%;
}

//Html
<div class="center container">
