iOS Swift 2.0 Basics Swift Types String Manipulation

Do I have to write to lines of code to solve this?

I can not find what is wrong.

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

You are only supposed to have two variables, not three, like this:

let name = "Haris"
let greeting = "Hi there, \(name)."

In the challenge is specifies that the greeting constant should contain that entire string.

So you would want your code to look something like this

let name = "Haris"
let greeting = "Hi there, \(name)."

I first wrote that let name = "Haris" let greeting = " (Hi there), (name)" why It didn't work
