Call animate method

I am missing something. It is asking me to call the method that animates them together. Isnt that the playSequentially that I have written down? Please help.

ObjectAnimator fadeInAnimator = ObjectAnimator.ofFloat(button, View.ALPHA, 0, 1);

ObjectAnimator moveUpAnimator = ObjectAnimator.ofInt(button, "top", buttonTop, 16);

ObjectAnimator scaleXAnimator = ObjectAnimator.ofFloat(button, "scaleX", 1.0f, 1.5f);

ObjectAnimator scaleYAnimator = ObjectAnimator.ofFloat(button, "scaleY", 1.0f, 1.5f);

// Add code below!
AnimatorSet animatorSet = new AnimatorSet();
animatorSet.playSequentially(fadeInAnimator, moveUpAnimator);

Hey Chris, there is another method called playTogether. playTogether plays the animations at the same time, while playSequentially plays them one after another.

AnimatorSet animatorSet = new AnimatorSet();
animatorSet.playSequentially(fadeInAnimator, moveUpAnimator);


AnimatorSet animatorSet = new AnimatorSet();
animatorSet.playTogether(fadeInAnimator, moveUpAnimator);

If you didn't understand please let me know.
