Hi Joel,

You are close but the exercise wants you to assign the name string to a constant.

You then assign, via string interpolation, the name with the string literal "Hi there" to a second constant.

Lastly, you create a third constant that concatenates the second constant with a final string literal "How are you?"

Here's what it should look like:

let name = "Joel"

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

let finalGreeting = "\(greeting)" + "How are you?"
