Hi @ vuongtritung

I’ve linked (below) to an FCC article that has some helpful explanations about CSS absolute and relative positioning.

Here’s an extract:

Absolute-positioned elements are completely taken out of the regular flow of the web page.
They are not positioned based on their usual place in the document flow, but based on the position of their ancestor.
