I'm stuck and don't know how to proceed (JavaScript and the DOM - Task 2 of 2)

let inputValue = document.getElementById("linkText").value; document.getElementById('link <p>').textContent = inputValue;

I am trying to get the second line to work but currently stuck. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

app.js
let inputValue = document.getElementById("linkText").value;
document.getElementById('link <p>').textContent = inputValue;
index.html
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
    <head>
      <title>DOM Manipulation</title>
    </head>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css" />
    <body>
      <div id="content">
        <label for="linkText">Link Text:</label>
        <input type="text" id="linkText" value="sample text">
        <p class="info"></p>
      </div>
    <script src="app.js"></script>
  </body>
</html>

Aside from document.getElementById('link <p>'), your code looks fine.

<p class="info"></p> does not have the id 'link <p>', but it is the first <p> element on the page and the first element with the class of info on the page. You could try selecting the element at index 0 from the HTMLCollection returned from the methods document.getElementsByClassName('info') or document.getElementsByTagName('p'). Alternatively, you could use the document.querySelector method, such as document.querySelector('p'), to select the element.
