Calc function CSS

Could someone please explain what this line of code does exactly?

padding: 0.5rem calc(1.25rem + 2px) 0.5rem 0;

I understand that its calculating based on the rem values.
but i can’t for the life of me work out what the final goal of this is

sorry if this is a dumb question or been asked before

its the same as

padding-top: 0.5 rem;
padding-right: calc(1.25rem + 2px);
padding-bottom: 0.5 rem;
padding-left: 0;

The calc function just sums up values with two different units (in this case). By this way you dont have to convert rem into pixel or vice versa yourself to sum them up.
