What exactly the SVG property stroke-dashoffset means and what is the relationship between stroke-dasharray?

I really don't understand the relationship between stroke-dasharray and stroke-dashoffset, and why I set the stroke-dashoffset to 5 is difference when set to 100? set the stroke-dashoffset to 100 it will move longer and 5 will just move little shorter.Why?

stroke-dashoffset: 100

/* *************************** */
/* ******* @Keyframes ******** */
/* ******* @Keyframes ******** */
/* *************************** */
@keyframes offset{
  100%{
    stroke-dashoffset: 0;
  }
}



.logo{
  stroke:#2CB552;
  stroke-width:1.5px;
  stroke-dasharray: 5;
  stroke-dashoffset: 100;
  animation: offset 5s linear forwards;
}

stroke-dashoffset: 5

/* *************************** */
/* ******* @Keyframes ******** */
/* ******* @Keyframes ******** */
/* *************************** */
@keyframes offset{
  100%{
    stroke-dashoffset: 0;
  }
}



.logo{
  stroke:#2CB552;
  stroke-width:1.5px;
  stroke-dasharray: 5;
  stroke-dashoffset: 5;
  animation: offset 5s linear forwards;
}
