"The product of (firstValue) times (secondValue) is 8" should be "The product of (firstValue) times (secondValue) is (firstValue * secondValue)"

Note that there is also a syntax-error.

let output: = // this is invalid, notice the colon without a type

// instead do this
let output = "..."

// or
let output: String = "..."
