I keep getting an error saying “Make sure the value you are assigning to greeting is an interpolated string “.

However, it works fine when I run it in swift playgrounds and comes up as Hi there, Michael. So I am very confused.

// Enter your code below
let name = "Michael"
let greeting = Hi there,

let interpolatedGreeting = "\(greeting)\(name)"

Hi Michael!

Check this out, the constant greeting in your code is just a regular string of "Hi there,"

The Challenge is requesting that you make it an interpolated string of "Hi there, Michael"


The second part of the challenge has a "gotcha" in there as well, so make sure to read it carefully!
