in task two i get this error "Make sure you're using concatenation to create the final string value required!"

when i put my code in xcode i get the right final greeting

let name = "Christof"
let greeting = "Hi there, \(name)"
let finalGreeting = "\(greeting). How are you?"

Hi Christof,

Concatenation is using the plus sign, not the brackets etc (that's interpolation). So, to create your final constant, add the two strings together with a plus sign.

Make sense?
