iOS Swift Basics Swift Types String Manipulation

It keeps saying I'm doing it wrong when it seems to me I'm doing it right. In Xcode, it's working perfectly. Help

Is there a bug or something or am I actually doing something wrong here? Why are there no "hints"? According to Xcode and the tutorial, I'm doing this correctly.

strings.swift
let name = "John"
let greeting = "Hi there, "
let interpolatedGreeting = "\(greeting) \(name)"

Your code is not wrong syntax wise, but it's not doing what the instructions tells you to do. The instructions ask you to interpolate the name constant into a greeting stored in the greeting constant. It does not ask you to create a constant called interpolatedGreeting.

If you interpolate name directly into greeting like this:

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

Then your code will pass the first task.
