How to copy and paste some part of the code, with the black background formatting?

Heyooo, I have seen many questions on this community where people paste their code with a black background formatting, I tried to replicate that but failed to understand how.

Can anyone please guide me, it would be a thrill. thx

From the Markdown Cheatsheet link:

Wrap your code with 3 backticks (```) on the line before and after. If you specify the language after the first set of backticks, that'll help us with syntax highlighting.

      <p>This is code!</p>

Dear William Li, thank you so much for your answer, It worked perfectly!!!! Best answer

The only part I did not quite understand was "markdown cheatsheet link", but then I figured it was a website :D if someone needs a link to it here it is:


P.S: a tick (`) is not a (') ( for anyone confused )
