ES6 - Use getters and setters to Control Access to an Object

Tell us what’s happening:
Describe your issue in detail here.
I do not understand what this prompt is asking me to do, as well as what my code should do. I completed the code only due to knowing what I have to complete due to the checklist until the one where I need to call the setter with a Celsius value, but I’m stuck right now due to me not even understanding the prompt.
Your code so far

// Only change code below this line

// Only change code above this line

const thermos = new Thermostat(76); // Setting in Fahrenheit scale
let temp = thermos.temperature; // 24.44 in Celsius
thermos.temperature = 26;
temp = thermos.temperature; // 26 in Celsius

Challenge: ES6 - Use getters and setters to Control Access to an Object

Link to the challenge:

what’s the code you have written?

Its literally the exact same thing as the solution by FCC (here):
class Thermostat {
constructor(fahrenheit) {
this.fahrenheit = fahrenheit;

get temperature() {
return (5 / 9) * (this.fahrenheit - 32);

set temperature(a) {
this.fahrenheit = (a * 9.0) / 5 + 32;

What I had a problem with was understanding the prompt and how getters and setters worked, but now I kind of understand it.
