what's the purpose of using negative values in margin?
I am a bit confused about using negative values. I do not see any use for it. Please enlighten me.

Margins are normally used to add more space between an element and those next to it.
A negative margin causes less space between the elements,, and it can potentially cause the elements to connect or overlap.
But using negative margins would not be good practice for an effect that can also be done with a more clearly understood technique. Modern layout techniques such as flexbox and grids should make it extremely rare for negative margins to be needed.
