Path to uploaded files?

I've used the File Manager to see where I can place PDF files for site visitors to download, and I have successfully uploaded a PDF file. What I can't figure out is what the path is so I can include a link on the website. At the top of the File Manager page, I see a folder icon, then a Home icon, and in parens, "/home/" followed by a short string of numbers and letters. If I put a PDF file in the subdirectory "public_html", what would the whole path be?

So Assuming your Ravshai.com is pointed to that folder http://ravshai.com/Writings/

 

on cPanel it is case sensitive

Assuming that your domain is pointed to the root of the server (public_html) then it would just be yourdomain/subfolder/filename.pdf

That's what I would have thought, but it's not working. Here is a screenshot of File Manager. The PDF file is in the Writings folder.

Oops, I notice there are two Writing folders because I've been trying to figure things out. The PDF file is in both of them.
