What am I doing wrong here ?

// Enter your code below

let name = "Jabor"

let greeting = " Hi there"

let interpolatedgreeting = "(greeting) (name)"

strings.swift
// Enter your code below

let name = "Jabor"

let greeting = " Hi there"

let interpolatedgreeting = "\(greeting) \(name)"

Hi there,

The first task wants you to create two strings. The second uses the first, interpolated. So, use \(name) inside the second string like this:

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