Can someone please explain in details how position relative works in css?

I am really struggling with that..

Position absolute is easy.., but what about relative?? I don't understand the logic with relative.., it's like it haves it own will if i give it a relative position....

Please someone?

container will be positioned relative to body.

formBox and formDescription will be positioned relative to container.

form will be positioned relative to formBox.

someone correct me if I am wrong ^^

But relative to what?

lets say we have some html code


    <div id="container">
        <div id="formBox">
            <div id="form">
        <div id="formDescription">


Let's say they are all relative to eachother?

How will they be positioned according it's parent and child scope?
