Question: What is common in relative and absolute dating?

Relative dating does not offer specific dates, it simply allows to determine if one artifact, fossil, or stratigraphic layer is older than another. Absolute dating methods provide more specific origin dates and time ranges, such as an age range in years.

What does relative and absolute dating have in common?

Answer: absolute dating is based on calculations of the age of rock strata based on half lives of minerals, relative dating does fossils on the assumed age of fossils found in the strata and the laws of super imposition.
