here they tell me I have Three errors:

  1. expected ',' separator let greeting = "(Hi there), (name)" ^ ,
  2. use of unresolved identifier 'Hi' let greeting = "(Hi there), (name)" ^
  3. error: use of unresolved identifier 'there' let greeting = "(Hi there), (name)"

let name = "Yeshaya"

let greeting = "\(Hi, there), \(name)"

You are trying to interpolate a String inside a String, but you don't need to. You use interpolation to put variables in Strings. Try this instead:

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

Note that the challenge is also asking for a period at the end.
