how do i do this code

Using these values, we want to compute the product and print out the product in a formatted string.

Step 1: Declare a constant named product and assign the result of multiplying firstValue and secondValue together. (To multiply two values, a and b, we write a * b).

Step 2: Using string interpolation, create a string literal that describes the operation we just performed. For example, given the following values for firstValue, secondValue and product respectively: 2, 4, 8. The string should read: "The product of 2 times 4 is 8". Assign this string to a constant named output.

// Enter your code below
let firstValue = 2

let secondValue = 4

let product = "firstValue * secondValue"

let output = "2 * 4 \(product)"

i know you dont use the numbers at the bottom, it was a last resort haha

Hi James

let firstValue = 2
let secondValue = 4

//For this part you have it correct you do not need quotation marks around it though
let product = firstValue * secondValue

//You need to use string interpolation here exactly as the challenge states
let output = "The product of \(firstValue) times \(secondValue) is \(product)"
