Need help

I put this code in and keep having error for part two.

let name = " Veasna Mam" let greeting = "Hi there,(name)." let finalGreeting = greeting + "Hi there, Pasan. How are you?"

let name = " Veasna Mam"
let greeting = "Hi there,\(name)."
let finalGreeting = greeting + "Hi there, Pasan. How are you?"

I had the same problem on my Iphone, but when I tried it on my laptop, it worked fine. Not sure what the problem was.

You are missing a space between \(name) and the comma.

Although technically you put a space as the first character in name, code challenges are extremely picky and aren't smart enough to realize that.

Add a space before the \(name) and you should be good to go :wink:

Happy coding! :grin:

Another problem can someone help me?

Now that we have an appropriate greeting for our user, let's make a bit more polite by concatenating the greeting string with a second string literal.

Declare a constant named finalGreeting, and concatenate the value of greeting with the string literal " How are you?".

Example: "Hi there, Pasan. How are you?"

Thank you guys for the help.

is this correct?

let name = " Veasna Mam" let greeting = "Hi there, (name)." let finalGreeting = greeting + "Hi there, Linda. How are you?
