comment “No such file or directory” but it's there.
Just to clarify, the point is that / refers to the very top of the hierarchy of your system. home is a top-level directory under / so /home refers to the home directory at the top of the hierarchy and /home/brian2 refers to the brian2 directory inside the home directory, whereas /brian2 refers to the non-existent brian2 directory at the top of the hierarchy. cd can also check the current directory, so if you are in /home already, it will go to /home/brian2 if you type cd brian2. cd /home/brian2 does the same thing.
