Hey Bill Foster,

You don't need to use string interpolation on "Hi, there" because it is a string literal. You use string interpolation when you want to add the value of a variable or a constant inside of a string.

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

Good Luck!

Thank you for your help
