How do you do Challenge Task 2 of 2?

I am stuck on this question. Please assist! Thank you!

Hi Kevin,

You should have two constants. One called fistValue and another called secondValue.

You then want to create a third constant called product that contains the first two multiplied together.

Lastly you want to make a string and assign it into a constant called output. In that string type out "The product of times is ". In the relevant places interpolate the three constants into it. To interpolate, use a backslash and parentheses - put the name of the constant inside the parentheses. Here's an example:

let age = 21
let output = "I am \(age) years old"

So you just need to build a different string an insert the three values at the relevant places.

I hope that helps.


Thanks for the detailed explanation, Steve!

Much appreciated, and I'm able to move on to the next part now.
