App not laying out correct?

Hi, I followed the video Build a simple Android app. The instructor did a great job of making me understand everything. I am at the video Adding a Button. My app design is exactly like the instructors. My problem is when I run the app in the virtual device it displays the button in the wrong place. It seems to be forcing the button towards the top. What can I look at to fix this? Thanks

if you using constraints layout then you should take care of the the constraints on the sketch and the properties I advice you to watch the video again and see how he use the constraints

Hi, thanks for the help. I am only at the video "Adding a Button" up to this point no info about constraints was given. I googled it and I see how to work with them. It fixed my problem immediately. Thanks
