How do I get the text content of "a value" when it is a link?

I selected the value of linkName from previous question but not sure where to go from here.

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="link" href="https://teamtreehouse.com"></a>
        <script src="app.js"></script>

Hi Victor,

The question is asking you to "Set the text content of the a tag to be the value stored in the variable inputValue". So you first need to select the a tags and then that value into the previous variable. Here are my codes for your reference:

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

let link = document.getElementById('link');

link.innerText = inputValue;

Hope that helps, Luke.
