I don't know what I'm doing wrong

I tried a bunch of things and I even looked what I did on Xcode but I can't seem to get the answer right. Please help!

// Enter your code below

let name = "Hadassah"
let greeting = "Hi there"

let interpolatedgreeting = "\(greeting), \(name)"

Your code is valid Swift, it just doens't comply with what the Treehouse challenge is looking for.

They want the variable greeting to be built using interpolation, rather than doing it in another step afterwards:

let greeting = "Hi there, \(name)"

Thanks! That worked! Now I can't figure out what I did wrong here...

let name = "Hadassah" let greeting = "Hi There, (name)" let finalGreeting = "(greeting). How are you?"
