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.

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

You need to move the period from "Ben" to right after name in the greeting string.

i tried it before, didn't work let name = "Ben" let greeting = "(Hi there), (name.)"

also tried it with the period outside the parentheses :/

Remove the slash and parenthesis from Hi there, they don't need to be there.
