iOS Swift Basics Swift Types Recap: Swift Types

I an unsure of how to do this question.

Step 2: Using string interpolation, create a string literal that describes the operation we just performed. For example, given the following values for firstValue, secondValue and product respectively: 2, 4, 8. The string should read: "The product of 2 times 4 is 8". Assign this string to a constant named output.

// Enter your code below
let firstValue = 1
let secondValue = 2
let product = "\(firstValue) * \(secondValue)"
let output:

1 Answer

// Enter your code below
let firstValue = 1
let secondValue = 2
let product = 1 * 2
let output = "The product of \(firstValue) times \(secondValue) is \(product)"

Product needs to be strictly integers/numbers because you are performing arithmetic operations and the compiler can't make that work if there are strings involved.

They are then asking you to use the string interpolation to create a sentence using the 3 integer values you have for the constant output - THEN you can have those values in a string because there is no arithmetic happening.

I hope this makes sense and helps!
