There are two types of paths:
Absolute path shows the location of a folder or a file from the root directory
/. In other words, it's a complete path from the very beginning of the filesystem to the target. Examples of absolute paths:
Relative path shows the location of a folder or a file from the working (current) directory. For example, if you're in
/Users/john/ right now, then
Documents/report.pdf is a relative path.
This is similar to a complete postal address (3500 Deer Creek Road. Palo Alto, CA 94304, United States of America — absolute path), or a incomplete postal address (5th ave., 12 — relative path, relative to the city you're in).
