iOS Swift Basics Swift Types String Manipulation

Can someone help me understand that what I’m doing wrong and how to fix it??

I’ve rewatched the video several times and have done exactly what was told (white space, slash, parentheses, etc)

// Enter your code below
let name = "Frank"
let greeting = "\(Hi) ,\(there,) ,\(name)"

1 Answer

To use a string as an "interpolated" string, it must have been previously declared and assigned. So in this case, the only part of the sentence "Hi there, Frank" that contains the interpolated string is "Frank" having been assigned to a constant 'name'.

let name = "Frank"
let greeting = "Hi there, \(name)"

Does this help?
