Hey Betsy,

You got the first Task correct, but now the second task wants you to output a very specific string using String Interpolation. Your `output` constant is not what the challenge asked for. Challenges are very specific and very picky. Step 2 of Task 2 asks:

"Using string interpolation, create a string literal that describes the operation we just performed. For example, given the following values for firstValue, secondValue and product respectively: 2, 4, 8. The string should read: "The product of 2 times 4 is 8". Assign this string to a constant named output." So, your string needs to read exactly that way.

Below is the corrected code. I hope it makes sense. If your still not 100% cleared up, I'd recommend reviewing String Interpolation before moving forward.

```let firstValue = 5

let secondValue = 9

let product = firstValue * secondValue

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

Keep Coding! :)
