iOS Swift 2.0 Basics Swift Types String Manipulation

the answers are not working

the interpolation is not working this as my answer let name = "Mohamed" let greeting = "("Hi there"), (name)(".")" but it keeps telling me that "make sure it is an interpolated value"

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

Try this:

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

let finalGreeting = greeting + " How are you?"  /Task 2

Compare the second line with yours:

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

You don't want to interpolate "Hi there" because it is already a String. You only interpolate variables. Similarly, you don't need to interpolate the comma, because it is already a String.
