Hi Kevin,

To interpolate a string use a backslash then enclose the variable name in parentheses. Do this inside a string. So something like "Interpolate a variable \(here)".

For this challenge you want to interpolate firstValue and secondValue as well as product in a string that says, "The product of 2 times 4 is 8". That can look like:

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

Make sense?

Steve.

ok, thank you
