CONFUSED.

I've tried literally 5 different ways of doing this, NONE work. Someone explain what one earth I could possibly be doing wrong. There is always more than one way to do something, I know.

structs.swift
struct Person {
    let firstName: String
    let lastName: String

    func getFullName() -> String {

    return ("\(firstName)", + " " + "\(lastName)"
    }
}

struct Person {
    let firstName: String
    let lastName: String

    func getFullName() -> String {

    return "\(firstName) " + "\(lastName)"
    }
}

try doing it in Xcode playgrounds if you can

You don't need that comma in there, also you don't need the strange escaping syntax as the variables are already type string.

So just firstName + " " + lastName
