Not sure what I am doing wrong here...

A little help please:)

// Enter your code below

let firstValue = 5

let secondValue = 5

let product = firstValue * secondValue

let output  = "The product of \(firstValue) \ times \(secondValue) \ is \(product)"

It looks like you got a little overzealous with your \ in the code. Remember that we only want to use them right before a variable name . For example "times" and "is" are not variable names. Also, challenges are picky and expect an exact string returned. Spaces and punctuation count so you're going to have to remove a space or so in there. Take a look at my output string.

let output  = "The product of \(firstValue) times \(secondValue) is \(product)"
