Hi there Killeon,

I'm not exactly sure what you are asking, so I will just waffle on. In this question you have a div element and a paragraph element. You want to add the paragraph element as the last child of the div element. When any element is added using appendChild() it is inserted at the end, making it the last child element.


In this case, the p element will be added to the div element, and will be the last child.
