How come this won't work?

let name = "Jayden." let greeting = "Hi there, (name)" let finalGreeting = "(greeting) How are you?"

How come this doesn't work? I plugged it in X Code and it ran without any errors.

// Enter your code below

let name = "Jayden."
let greeting = "Hi there, \(name)"
let finalGreeting = "\(greeting) How are you?"

Hi Jayden, the second (last task ) for this challenge do not ask for interpolation. It asks specifically to use concatenation. You're not using concatenation in the finalGreeting. That´s why it´s not working.

Doh! I ended up carefully reading the challenge and I figured it out. Thanks Diego!
