What does Hezekiah mean by the shadow going forward or backward ten steps?

I don't understand this passage. Can anyone explain this?

2 Kings 20:10

NIV - 10 "It is a simple matter for the shadow to go forward ten steps," said Hezekiah. "Rather, have it go back ten steps."

Thank you so much for answering this question for me. It is just so cool, how God responds to faithful requests from His people. Thank you also for the comparison with the request from Joshua. God is SO good!
