iOS Swift 2.0 Basics Swift Types String Manipulation

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

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. I tried like this

let name = "Linda" let greeting = "Hi there,"

(" /(greeting) ("") (name) (".")") let fgreeting = ("(greeting) (name)(".")")

// Enter your code below

Hi Karthik,

The problem in your answer is the way how you interpolate the string, in swift you should use () inside of the "". So the answer could look something like this:

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

Hope this helped out,

Kind regards, Jari

Thank you..

Here is the correct response:

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