There are two issues with your solution, the first is that you have a space between the \ and (name) which is invalid. They need to be right next to each other. The other issue is that code challenges are very picky about the string you write, it usually has to match the requested string exactly including things like capitalization and commas/periods.

If you fix those issues like this:

let name = "Daylor"
let greeting = "Hi there, \(name)" // The first letter was capitalized and a comma was added

Then your code will work.
