co1inst- How the word "instance" is used here

create counter

In a given project, you might need three very similar resistors.

You might well use three instances of the same schematic symbol to place these resistors on the schematic, and then three instances of the same footprint to provide for them on the PCB.

I hope seeing "instance" used in that example helps you understand how it is used in these pages?
