// Enter your code below let name = "Dave." let greeting = "Hi there, (name)"

let InterpolatedGreeting = "(greeting)"

This way worked best

I think you are missing the backslash \ in front of the interpolated string (someVariable). For example, the format of an interpolated string with two variables should look like this...

let someString = "\(someVariable) with some \(otherVariable)"

Hope this helps.

You need the backslash before the parentheses for string interpolation. Also the order that you're putting these variables in is going to print out "Dave. Hi there,"

First off, make sure your code statements are on separate lines. Also, your variable 'InterpolatedGreeting' should start with a lowercase 'i'. You need forward slashes before your interpolated strings, like this:

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