Hi Thomas -

Hi there is not a variable you have declared ; therefore, you cannot use string interpolation. You do not need the forward slash or parentheses around it. You are using string interpolation for the variable name that you declared so you have that part correct. The correct way to complete the task is below, please let me know if this makes sense. Using those concepts you should be able to complete the second part of the task

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