What is wrong with this??? const drink= `$ {flavor} $ {type}: $$ {price}`; Why aren't the solutions shown???

I couldn't do a copy and paste :(

Why don't they show solutions???

app.js
const flavor = "Blueberry";
const type = "Smoothie";
const price = 4.99;

const drink = `$ {flavor}  $ {type}: $$ { price}`;

Thanks Miguel. So the only thing I did wrong was add the back tick?

Okay thanks. I thought that they said in one of the videos that spaces didn't matter. Hmmmmm.

It doesn’t, excluding ${} the dollar sign and the first curly bracelet. ;) it matters there.

No Robert. You need the backticks, only this way you can use template literals. Problem was the white spaces.
