can't figure out what im doing wrong

let name = "Ben." let greeting = "(Hi there), (name)"

I don't really understand what i'm doing wrong here. Firstly, i thought we had to declare a greeting and then piece it together.

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

You seem to have an error in how you've transcribed the challenge. Here's what's in my playground: let name = "Candace" let greeting = "Hi there, (name)." And then the final line should be: let finalGreeting = "(greeting) How are you?" Hope this helps!
