how to set the interpolated data in the second part

trying to figure this out i named the constant with my name and the second part of naming it the greeting with "Hi there it I'm a little confused

// Enter your code below
let name = "Neil"

let greeting = "Hi there"

let interpolated = 

You're going to want to let interpolated be a String like this: let interpolated = ", "

And then use interpolation syntax: \() to pass in the name and greeting variable.

Like this: let interpolated = "\(greeting), \(name)"

This will work:

// Enter your code below
let name = "Marlon"
let greeting = "Hi there, \(name)"
let finalGreeting = greeting + "" + "How are you?"
