When trying to code Challenge Task 2 of 2 I wrote my code as follows: let finalGreeting = "\(greeting). How are you?"

That line of code compiled in the playground to look exactly like what I am interpreting the exercise to be asking of me. However, when I copy and paste the code to the exercise area it is still giving me an error.

// Enter your code below
let name = "Elizabeth Schultz"
let greeting = "Hi there, \(name)"
let finalGreeting = "\(greeting). How are you?"

The challenge requires you to use concatenation (using the plus sign) and not string interpolation.
