The major difference is in the syntax. In .prepend() and .prependTo() methods perform the same task. The major difference is in the syntax.

The .append() method selector expression preceding the method is the container into which the content is inserted. With .appendTo(), on the other hand, the content precedes the method, either as a selector expression or as markup and it is inserted into the target container.

The .prepend() methos selector expression preceding the method is the container into which the content is inserted. With .prependTo(), on the other hand, the content precedes the method, either as a selector expression or as markup. and it is inserted into the target container.
