let name = "Linda" let greeting = "Hi there, " let hellothere = greeting + name

In this task we're going to declare two strings. First, declare a constant named name and assign to it a String containing your name.

Second, declare a constant named greeting. Set the value of greeting to an interpolated string that combines "Hi there, " with the string stored in the name constant.

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

strings.swift
// Enter your code below


let name = "naser"

let greeting = "Hi there, "

let hellothere = greeting + name

In this challenge, you're asked to create a constant string with your name (which you've done correct).

Then you must interpolate (not concatenate) it with the string in the constant named greeting.

let name = "naser"

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