How to create an interpolated string with a constant and new text?

I may not understand the question correctly, but it seems like I am supposed to create an interpolated string with some new text and then add a constant to the end. I am not sure how to do this.

Also, its likely I am just not understanding the question correctly.

Thanks!

strings.swift
// Enter your code below

let name = "Ben"

let greeting = "\ Hi there, \(name)"

The question is this

In this task we're going to declare two strings. First, declare a constant named name and assign to it a String containing your name.

Second, declare a constant named greeting. Set the value of greeting to an interpolated string that combines "Hi there, " with the string stored in the name constant.

As an example, the final value of greeting could be "Hi there, Linda".
