Why won't this work trying to do 3 * 2 = 6


// Enter your code below
let firstValue = 3
let secondValue = 2
let product = " firstValue * secondValue "
let output = "\( firstValue * seccondValue )"

1 Answer

You do not need the parentheses for the product. In your output constant, you want to print "The product of 2 times 4 is 8", by replacing the 2, 4, 8 with the firstValue, secondValue, and product constants. Which should look like this:

let output = "The product of \(firstValue) times \(secondValue) is \(product)"
