Welcome to the beautiful world of coding, it might be a bit hard to understand at first, but as you go I promise you will understand more and you’ll like it even more.

In your question you say you don’t understand, but what part ? the printing part or the assigning a value to a variable ? I’ll explain both anyways.

In swift when you want to apply a value to a variable you have to use the equal sign =.

So it should look something like this

var anyName = value

if you want to “print” or show the value that’s within the variable, in this case “value”, you use the method “println()”

println(anyName)  // it will print “value”

hope it helps a bit.
