You need to reference the variables inside your template literals without the use of strings.

You've got the syntax for template literals just right

${ value_of_template literal }

And you can include them easily inside strings with backticks and the browser will recognise it as a template literal

You can pass in the variable values inside template literals like this.

let variable_name = "variable_value";

const message = `${variable_name}`;
