iOS Swift Basics Swift Types Recap: Swift Types

I'm not sure where I went wrong here. Is there something I'm missing?

Any help would be appreciated.

types.swift
// Enter your code below

let firstValue = 5
let secondValue = 10

let product = firstValue * secondValue

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

Nevermind, I used / instead of \

Hello,

You are doing great, the only thing that you are missing is that the string interpolation is not done correctly.

Here is my example code:

let firstValue = 5
let secondValue = 10

let product = firstValue * secondValue

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

You were using forward slash instead of the back slash. And also the period at the end was not required.

Good luck with your coding.

Thank you!
