hide the third row in a table with css

just wondered how hard it is to hide the third column in a table with css, rather than deleting it in the html

here is the test table

cell 1a cell 2a cell 3a cell 4a cell 5a
cell 1b cell 2b cell 3b cell 4b cell 5b
cell 1c cell 2c cell 3c cell 4c cell 5c

we can hide the 3rd cells using the nth-child(3) selector


<table id="test-table" class="table table-primary" style="border-collapse: collapse; width: 100%;" border="1">
<td style="width: 18.2748%;">cell 1a</td>
<td style="width: 18.2748%;">cell 2a</td>
<td style="width: 18.2748%;">cell 3a</td>
<td style="width: 18.2748%;">cell 4a</td>
<td style="width: 18.2748%;">cell 5a</td>
<td style="width: 18.2748%;">cell 1b</td>
<td style="width: 18.2748%;">cell 2b</td>
<td style="width: 18.2748%;">cell 3b</td>
<td style="width: 18.2748%;">cell 4b</td>
<td style="width: 18.2748%;">cell 5b</td>
<td style="width: 18.2748%;">cell 1c</td>
<td style="width: 18.2748%;">cell 2c</td>
<td style="width: 18.2748%;">cell 3c</td>
<td style="width: 18.2748%;">cell 4c</td>
<td style="width: 18.2748%;">cell 5c</td>


table#test-table td:nth-child(3) {
   display: none;
cell 1a cell 2a cell 3a cell 4a cell 5a
cell 1b cell 2b cell 3b cell 4b cell 5b
cell 1c cell 2c cell 3c cell 4c cell 5c
