I do not understand what I am doing wrong here?

Having trouble completing this challenge. It says declare the second constant with greeting, which I did, and then it says great a value to make it a string interpolation.

// Concatenation
let name = "Matthew"
let greeting = "Hi there,"

let concatenatedGreeting = greeting + name

// String Interpolation
let interpolatedGreeting = "\(greeting), \(name)."

I'm not sure if this is what's throwing it off, but you have an extra comma in there, no need for the comma after (greeting) as it's already in the original string. Otherwise it looks good to me.
