your finalGreeting would output: Hi there, Ceejay + How are you? You don't want the + sign to show in your output, so either take the greeting out of the quotations or replace the + with a period, like so:

let finalGreeting = "\(greeting). How are you? "

OR

let finalGreeting = greeting + ". How are you? "
