Div with "width: auto;" not auto-expanding & "display: inline;" not working on its own. Why is this happening?

Can anyone tell me why my div is not auto expanding to fit its contents, even though I set "width: auto;" ?
Also, why does my "display: inline;" not work?

Question 1: I set the div-with-thick-red-dashed-border to "width: auto;", but the inner divs are wrapping for some reason, and the div-with-thick-red-dashed-border is not expanding horizontally to contain more divs.
