I am stuck on this problem. They want me to get the product of the first and second value and then create a string literal and get the output. Please help!

// Enter your code below
let firstValue: Int = 1
let secondValue: Int = 2
let product = (firstValue * secondValue)
let output = product

Hi Luke,

The challenge is specific in the wording it's after and the fact that it's expecting interpolation, so you might want to try something like:

let output = "The product of \(...) times \(...) is \(...)"

substituting your variables inside the parentheses. Hope this helps.

Ok thanks!
