Looking to learn something new?
my answer is correct
let name = "kenya" let thegreeting = "Hi there, " let greeting = "(thegreeting) (name)"
// Enter your code below let name = "kenya" let thegreeting = "Hi there, " let greeting = "\(thegreeting) \(name)"

Whilst your solution will produce the right output, it's not strictly accomplishing what the task is asking you to do. You've added an extra step into the process by declaring "theGreeting", and the challenge isn't expecting this value to exist.
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.
Your spot on with this part of the task, so let's take a look ahead.
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.
So this part is where the problem lies. We don't need to declare a separate string variable to store the value "Hello there, ". Instead, we can use this string directly within the "greeting" variable, and add the value stored in "name" using string interpolation like so:
let greeting = "Hi there, \(name)"
Hope that helps!
