Why does it say, "Bummer! Make sure you're using concatenation to create the final string value required!

My code looks perfect, and it works in Xcode playground.

let name = "Micah" let greeting = "Hi there, (name)." let finalGreeting = "(greeting) How are you?"

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