My code is coming out correctly in xcode but not in the browser. I dont understand what I am doing wrong.

My code appears to be correct when I put it in XCode but not in the browser. I can't see where I am missing anything and I have rewatched the video a few times. Could someone point out where I am making the mistake?

// Enter your code below
// Interpolated Greeting

let name = "Marie."
let greeting = "Hi there,"

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

The problem lies in the interpretation of the instructions. Your greeting variable should be using interpolation with the name variable at the end. Also it needs a full stop. The last variable is supposed to be named finalGreeting and use concatenation... not interpolation. Yours is named interpolatedGreeting and uses interpolation. Give it a new try with these tips in mind :smiley:

:information_source: Even if your code is functional, the challenge can still fail if you do not follow the challenge instructions to the letter.


It is because the greeting var had to be interpolated string

you could do something like:

let name:String = "Marie."
let greeting = "Hi there, \(name)"

and that would work, the reason your code wasn't correct in the code challenge was because the greeting variable wasnt interpolated

I hope this helped!
