<p>You are very close!</p> <p>Without an argument, the text() method returns the text associated with the currently selected element(s).</p> <p>With an argument, it replaces the text with that argument. So

$('#temperature').text('this is an example')

will change the text to "this is an example".</p> <p>Simply replace string in the above code with the current temperature. You can pass a string, number, boolean or function to text().</p>
