What is the definition of the D-Offset in the Parallel Axis Theorem?

    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    My question is, to gain more knowledge on, is in Physics, what is the terminology for D-offset in the Parallel axis theorem?

    2. Relevant equations
    I= Icm + Md^2

    3. The attempt at a solution
    From my understanding, the offset is the distance away from the axis of rotation.
