Cant figure out what I'm doing wrong here.

Need help figuring out what I am doing wrong here.

// Enter your code below

let firstValue = 3

let secondValue = 7

let product = firstValue * secondValue

let output = "The product of \(firstValue) times \(secondValue)  is \(product)"

Hi there! You're either going to love or hate this answer, but you're doing great! Challenges can be extremely strict especially when looking at strings. Generally speaking, they have to match to the letter. This includes spelling, punctuation, capitalization, and even spacing. The reason your code isn't passing is because you have an extra space. Seriously. That's the only thing "incorrect".

You have one too many spaces between the interpolation of secondValue and the word "is". Remove one space there, and your code passes with flying colors! :sparkles:

such strictness is actually wasting a lot of time for users who want to resolve the problem themselves rather looking for a solution.
