JavaScript JavaScript and the DOM (Retiring) Making Changes to the DOM DOM Manipulation

I'm not sure how append paragraph element to dom.

Please help I've tried looking MDN and tried multiple times to solve but it keeps saying "task 1 is no longer passing"

const contentDiv = document.getElementById("content");
let newParagraph = document.createElement('p');
let div = document.getElementByTagName('div')[0];
newParagraph.className = 'panel';

<!DOCTYPE html>
        <title>DOM Manipulation</title>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css" />
        <div id="content">

        <script src="app.js"></script>

I'm not on that section yet, but have you tried something like contentDiv.appendChild(newParagraph); ?

thx that was it!
