Combine child sequences and bare names

I have a question regarding to XPointer.
The explanation for the above fragment is: It "uses a bare name to identify the seventh child of the second child of the document element by ID followed by a relative child sequence"(from "Essential XML quick reference").
I can't understand the above explanation. Why it is seventh child of secondchild? How to explain the number "3" in the fragment? How to know the bare name is section instead of section7?
Could someone please help me with that? Any helps are highly appreciated.
