How to install SQL server standar edition (core) license

For SQL Server 15 and using SQL Server Management Studio 2019.

As SQL Server licenses are sold in packs of two cores, they send me 3 licenses with diferent product keys.

I want to know how i can activate the three codes and verify that i have installed them correctly and all cores are licensed.

    You have SQL Server licenses only on paper, but nowhere in the system => nothing to "activate"

    Use one of the product key to install SQL Server.
