interpolation question

Not sure to understand what is wrong with my code

strings.swift
// Enter your code below
let name = "David"
let greeting = "\(Hi there), \(name)."

"Hi there" is not a variable or constant. It's only a part of greeting. You should write like this:

let greeting = "Hi there, (name)"

Take care, though, it's supposed to be

let greeting = "Hi there, \(name)." 

This forums seems to strip the backslash with regular text.
