It says that the value of the input element is changed.
Where can I see this value? Where is it sent?

What will be the default value for the step attribute in the input element if I don’t enter the step attribute at all? Also what are the default values for the max and min attributes?

When you set the max number, what does the number translate in terms of its output on screen? For example, if I set the max to 10, is it like 100 pixels away from the origin? Or is it just an arbitrary number?
