Hi, I'm new to task challenges. My Xcode seems to be fine, but I keep getting the following bummer message.

strings.swift
// Enter your code below
let name = "Thomas"
let greeting = "Hi there,"
let interpolatedGreeting = "\(greeting) \(name)"

Bummer: Make sure the value you are assigning to greeting is an interpolated string

Here is my code :

  let name = "Victor Mercier"
//greeting declaration using interpolation
let greeting = "Hi there, \(name)"
//finalGreeting declaration using concatenation
let finalGreeting = greeting + "How are you?"

Just make sure you name the interpolatedGreeting finalGreeting!

Still no luck Victor Mercier .... Any other workarounds?

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

Thanks Victor Mercier.

Very much appreciated! I'm sorry if that was the most basic question you have ever had to answer, but it was very much appreciated!
