A string literal are the quotes and whats between them. They could be in the form of a variable, constant or as a input or return in a function etc... Simply, the quotes and everything between them. In this challenge you are supposed use the "product" constant to calculate the value of "firstValue" times "secondValue", this has to be done as integer values, just delete the quotes and your product constant does just that.
