Hey stuck on this question regarding the format.

Don't understand why this format isn't working?

Am I not understanding the question correctly?

// Enter your code belet firstValue: Int = 10

let firstValue: Int = 2
let secondValue: Int = 4

let product = firstValue * secondValue

let output = "\(firstValue) * \(secondValue) = \(product)"

Hi Raj,

The challenge is expecting a string to be output that looks like "The product of 2 times 4 is 8". Use the words, not symbols.

I hope that helps,


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