Hi! You have the right idea, but I think you're adding in an extra step. The constant "interpolatedMyGreeting" is not required, they only want the constant named 'greeting'.

They're looking for you to work 'name' into your 'greeting' string. Also make sure to include the backslash before (name). For example:

let example = "this is my example"
let sentence = "Hello there, \(example)."

// the final value of 'sentence' would be, "Hello there, this is my example."

Hope that helps!

thank you for your help
