I need some help, please

Using string interpolation, create a string literal that describes the operation we just performed. For example, given the following values for firstValue, secondValue and product respectively: 2, 4, 8. The string should read: "The product of 2 times 4 is 8". Assign this string to a constant named output.

I need some assistance, please.

types.swift
// Enter your code below

let firstValue: Int = 25
let secondValue: Int = 5

let product = firstValue * secondValue

let output  = "The product of \(firstValue) times \(secondValue) is \(product)"

If the text you have posten is the exact text from the challenge it say nothing about creating a ”product” constant. Try making the calculation inside the string interpolation.

Step 1: Declare a constant named product and assign the result of multiplying firstValue and secondValue together. (To multiply two values, a and b, we write a * b).
