Issues with Interpolated String task

What is the issues with this code because I am quite certain it is correct? Did I not write it the way your system was programmed to read?

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

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

Hi there! There seems to be some misunderstanding of the instructions here. The entire interpolated string was meant to be assigned to the variable greeting.

Here are the relevant instructions:

As an example, the final value of greeting could be "Hi there, Linda.".

Also, the challenge does not state anywhere in the first step to create a third constant.

This is what it's looking for:

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

Hope this helps! :sparkles:
