Hi John Gilmer

Please fix the Title of your post and the description in the Body. "e" is just gibberish and not acceptable posting practice for the Treehouse Community. This kind of post makes the Community look unprofessional and confusing. Please fix the above ASAP.

Thank you for your cooperation.

Hey John, for the second part of this challenge you use string concatenation not string interpolation.

let phrase = "Hi there Elliot"

let concatenationExample = phrase + "How are you ?" 

hope this helps
