Having a problem with the last line of code

The String part

// Enter your code below
let firstValue : Int = 10
let secondValue : Int = 8
let product : Int = firstValue * secondValue
let output : String = "The product of \(firstValue), times \(secondValue), is \(product)."

1 Answer

The problem with your code is that althought you are doing the interpolation properly you have two extra commas in your output.

Desired outcome - what the challenge is requesting:

 "The product of 10 times 8 is 80"

Your outcome

 "The product of 10, times 8, is 80"

As you can see to the compiler the two extra commas in your string does not match what is expected.
