not able to interpolate "hey there" and a value from constant

Often when we use apps, we enter our name during the sign up process. Later, inside the app, we see many greetings that reference us by name.

This feature can be implemented quite simply using string interpolation. 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.".

Note: Make sure to enter a period/full stop after your name in the final string.

let name = "Bob." let greeting = "Hi there" print("(greeting) (name)")

*The second curly bracket shows a backwards slash. It is not being displayed properly
