Your form element should have well-formed open and close tags?

I can’t figure out what is wrong with this, and I either am met with “Your form element should have well-formed open and close tags” or " The existing input should be nested within a form element. I can’t figure out how to nest the input into the form element without getting my close tag wrong. PLEASE HELP!

  **Your code so far**

I know im late but if you are still stuck at this challenge, this reply may help you.

the mistake in your code is that you put a <input>element at the end of the <form> instead of >.

to pass the challenge you need to remove the <input> element at the end of the <form> element and replace it with a >.

hope you get it

It is great that you solved the challenge, but instead of posting your full working solution, it is best to stay focused on answering the original poster’s question(s) and help guide them with hints and suggestions to solve their own issues with the challenge.

We are trying to cut back on the number of spoiler solutions found on the forum and instead focus on helping other campers with their questions and definitely not posting full working solutions.

You can post solutions that invite discussion (like asking how the solution works, or asking about certain parts of the solution). But please don’t just post your solution for the sake of sharing it.
If you post a full passing solution to a challenge and have questions about it, please surround it with [spoiler] and [/spoiler] tags on the line above and below your solution code.
