This Looks Right to Me…

Why is the value of greeting here not considered an interpolated value?

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

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

let name = "Cole"

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

The constant name is the only thing being interpolated (inserted) into the string.

Hey Andrew,

String interpolation makes non-strings into strings. If something is already a string, it doesn't really make sense to coerce it into become a ... string.

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