// Enter your code below
let firstValue: Int = 2
let secondValue: Int = 4
let product: Int = 8

let output: String = "firstValue + secondValue + product"

I can see what you're stuck with and have written the correct code out for you below.

To give an explanation as to where you were going wrong is by answering the product yourself rather than writing the code to make it calculate it itself. If firstValue and secondValue were a lot higher numbers, you'd want the code to give you the answer rather than hard code it yourself. As for the string interpolation, it can take to getting used to at first so have a look at what i've done below, by dropping in the values within a Stringed sentence. It created the sentence that the question asks for. I hope this helped.

''' let firstValue: Int = 2 let secondValue: Int = 4 let product = firstValue * secondValue

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