Swift Format doesnt match

I did what the instruction told me to, but it says format doesnt match. Any help plz ? -_-o

types.swift
// Enter your code below
let firstValue = 2
let secondValue = 3
let product = firstValue * secondValue
let output = "The product of \(firstValue) times \(secondValue) is \(product) "

Step 1: Declare a constant named product and assign the result of multiplying firstValue and secondValue together. (To multiply two values, a and b, we write a * b).

Step 2: 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.

Hello, buddy! I could see only 1 mistake in your code, which is in the value of secondValue constant. It should be 4 instead of 3, as it is in your code. However I got no bummers with the following code I've just wrote..

let firstValue = 2
let secondValue = 4 // You wrote 3 here :) 
let product = firstValue * secondValue
let output = "The product of \(firstValue) times \(secondValue) is \(product)"

Did I answered your question ? Let me know ;) Let the force be with you! Mino :)
