When I add a carousel as a full width item, it goes across the entire screen (which is what I want), but only one tile high, and it scales down correctly on mobile.
When I use your example of specifying my own size of 9x2, the banner looks great on desktop, but is no longer responsive. Could you tell me how I can make it full width, but the equivalent of 3 tiles high, full width that will display / scale down correctly on mobile.

When I do the 100% the webpart does become responsive and full width, however the image inside does not scale, It just cuts it off. So the image on mobile is not legible.
