defining the output constant

I'm having a problem understanding how to write the output constant out. Do I use the interpolation format to say the same thing as what my product constant state?

types.swift
// Enter your code below

let firstValue = 274
let secondValue = 325

let product = firstValue * secondValue

let output = "firstValue * secondValue"

I think what you are looking for is String Interpolation

// Enter your code below

let firstValue = 274 
let secondValue = 325

let product = firstValue * secondValue

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

Thanks Tim!
