Hello again everyone!

First of all I wanted to say thank you for being so nice and welcoming on this forum!

I have a question, could someone please explain to me the relativize() method?  I have read the section in the OCP study guide, I read the javadocs, and tried to find other information on the internet really breaking down what it's doing and how it's doing it, but still I can't fully understand its function.

Thanks!!
Sincerely,
Michael
