JavaScript AJAX Basics (retiring) AJAX and APIs Create a callback function

Can someone solve this challenge?

Finally, to insert the temperature into the span, use jQuery's text() method. You'll need to pass the temperature into this method. The Open Weather Map API returns an object with the property main; that property holds another object with the property "temp". To access the temperature, use dot syntax, like this: weatherReport.main.temp

weather.js
$(document).ready(function() {
  var weatherAPI = 'http://api.openweathermap.org/data/2.5/weather';
  var data = {
    q : "Portland,OR",
    units : "metric"
  };
  function showWeather(weatherReport) {
    $('#temperature').main.temp.text();
  };
});
index.html
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
  <meta charset="utf-8">
  <title>What's the Weather Like?</title>
  <script src="jquery.js"></script>
  <script src="weather.js"></script>
</head>
<body>
  <div id="main">
    <h1>Current temperature: <span id="temperature"></span>&deg;</h1>
  </div>
</body>
</html>

You are correctly selecting the span element. Now you just need to call the jQuery text method on the span element. Then, pass the text method the data that comes back from the weatherAPI.

Soooo......
