iOS Swift 2.0 Basics Swift Types String Manipulation

Help? I can't seem to find out whats wrong with my code.

Here's what I have so far: let name = mikao let greeting = "(Hi there), (name)."

// Enter your code below

let name = mikao

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

Using the string interpolation syntax is only for the variable. You also need to wrap your name string in quotes to identify that it is a string.

let name = "Ian"
let greeting = "Hi there, \(name)."
//if printed would say "Hi there, Ian."
