What’s wrong with my code?

Don’t know why it’s not working...

// Enter your code below
let firstValue=2
let secondValue=10
let product=firstValue * secondValue
let output= "The product of 
\(firstValue) times \(secondValue)
is \(product)"

I believe it’s your spacing after output. If you remove the space after output= before “The. it should work because the spacing before and after the = needs to be the same.

It seems that you forget about spaces and the one missing after output is causing the error. Also in general, it looks like using spaces everywhere is more readable like so :

let firstValue = 2 let secondValue = 10 let product = firstValue * secondValue let output = "The product of (firstValue) times (secondValue) is (product)"
