Hey, Muhammed Drammeh!

An anchor tag is used to turn elements on the page into links. This can be done with text, or if you wrap the <a> anchor tag around an image, it will turn the picture into a link.

Anchor tags are declared with <a href="LINK">TEXT</a>

You can see more here: https://www.w3schools.com/tags/tag_a.asp

the 'a' tag.
