Why is it telling me this: The format of your output string doesn't match the requirements listed?

It's telling me that I've got the output string format wrong but I've tried every way and there is still no answer

let firstValue: Int = 2
let secondValue: Int = 4

let product = firstValue * secondValue
let output: String = "The product of \(firstValue) and \(secondValue) is \(product)."

Hi Aaryen Singh

Your syntax is correct, but your wording is not. Instructions for the challenges are very specific and need to be followed exactly, or the code checker will throw you a Bummer.

Here the instruction say the string must be "The product of x times y ..." but you have "The product of x and y ..."

Just fix that up the it'll be good to go!

Nice work :) :dizzy:
