Hey Mike, you dont need to create a new variable, you just use the greetings variable. So instead do:

let name = "Mike"
let greeting = "Hi there, \(name)"

Hey Mike, but you were so close, why did you give up :D

// Enter your code below
let name="Mike"
let greeting= "Hi there, \(name)"

There is a white space issue with your code which will not allow it to compile. You must you the same white space on both sides of the "=".
