I am having a problem with step 2 the string interpolation

let firstValue = 2 let secondValue = 4 let product = firstValue * secondValue

let output = "(product) = (firstValue) * (secondValue)"

types.swift
// Enter your code below
let firstValue = 2
let secondValue = 4
let product = firstValue * secondValue
let output = "\(product) = \(firstValue)  * \(secondValue)"

You had the right idea but these values had to put placed in a specific order alongside a sentence like so:

let output = "The product of \(firstValue) times \(secondValue) is \(product)"
