To get the position of a div/span tag with JavaScript, we use the getBoundingClientRect method.

For instance, we write

const offsets = document.getElementById("11a").getBoundingClientRect();
const top = offsets.top;
const left = offsets.left;

to select the element with getElementByid.

Then we call getBoundingClientRect method to return an object with the top and left coordinates to get the x and y coordinates of the top left corner of the element.
