could someone help please

I dont know what im doing wrong. Ive tried a couple different combinations.

// Enter your code below
let name  = "Christopher"
let greeting = "Hi there, \(name)"
let finalGreeting = "How are you? + \(name)"

1 Answer

Try: let finalGreeting = greeting + " " + "How are you?"

Also, I think your greeting needs a "." at the end of it.

Your answer is correct, however, technically the task asks for a concatenation, so the + operator should be used.

Thanks Christian Mangeng , I hadn't seen that. Updated!
