somebody please help I've written several different examples and still can't get it what am I doing wrong?

as title reads I'm stumped

// Enter your code below
let firstValue = 2
let secondValue = 4
let product = firstValue * secondValue 
let output = "the product of  \(firstValue) times \(secondValue) is \(product) "

I even ran it in Xcode and the format is exactly as shows in the question this has to be a problem with the website itself

1 Answer

The error you receive is: Bummer: The format of your output string doesn't match the requirements listed. Double check the example given in the directions!

Your output should look like this:

The product of 2 times 4 is 8

What you have is this:

the product of  2 times 4 is 8

Things to fix:

1) Capitalize the T in The

2) Remove the extra space (there are two) before \(firstValue)

3) Remove the trailing space after \(product)
