iOS Swift Basics Swift Types String Manipulation

It's asking me to create a interpolated string without having part of it already being set a contant value to add to it.

let name = "David" let greeting = "Hi there, " + "(name)"

// Enter your code below
let name = "David"
let greeting = "Hi there,"
let interpolatedGreeting = "\(greeting) + \(name)"

With interpolated strings, you don't need to use concatenation to join two string variables into you. All you have to do is wrap the variable name that you would like to use in a string with the syntax: (). So with your problem, all you would need to do is this:

let name = "David"
let greeting = "Hi there,"
let interpolatedGreeting = "\(greeting) \(name)"

Hope this helps, Daniel
