JavaScript JavaScript and the DOM (Retiring) Making Changes to the DOM Modifying Elements

Do not understand question/ how should I change the a tag

I don't quite understand how to change the a tag in this code to store a value. Should I change also the "href=...."?

let inputValue = document.getElementById('linkName').value;
<!DOCTYPE html>
        <title>DOM Manipulation</title>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css" />
        <div id="content">
            <label>Link Name:</label>
            <input type="text" id="linkName">
            <a id="text" href="inputValue"></a>
        <script src="app.js"></script>

The challenge wants you to store the value of the input element, into the variable inputValue.

let inputValue = document.getElementById("linkName").value;

Thanks Prsicilla! I solved it like that:

document.getElementById('link').textContent = inputValue;

It did not work to set the inputValue again with "let".
