please provide some assistance

// Enter your code below
let name = "Jacob"
let greeting = "Hi there, \(name)"
let secondString = "How are you?"
let finalGreeting = "greeting" + "secondString"

Your greeting and secondString variables shouldn't be in quotes.

Hello Jacob, Replace: let finalGreeting = "greeting" + "secondString" With: let finalGreeting = greeting + secondString

greeting and secondString are variables - you should place quotes over Strings and not variables!
