Can't Pass the constructor part of this training

I'm currently at Adding a custom constructor in the Build an interactive story course. Everything is working fine, but my code isn't working. Here's the code.

package com.inmotionhosting.gostories.model;


  • Created by Will S on 4/27/2017. */

import com.inmotionhosting.gostories.R;

public class Story {

private Page[] pages;

public Story() {
    pages = new Page[7];

    pages[0] = new Page(R.drawable.page0,
            new Choice(R.string.page0_choice1, 1),
            new Choice(R.string.page0_choice2, 2));

    pages[1] = new Page(R.drawable.page1,
            new Choice(R.string.page1_choice1, 3),
            new Choice(R.string.page1_choice2, 4));

    pages[2] = new Page(R.drawable.page2,
            new Choice(R.string.page2_choice1, 4),
            new Choice(R.string.page2_choice2, 6));

    pages[3] = new Page(R.drawable.page3,
            new Choice(R.string.page3_choice1, 4),
            new Choice(R.string.page3_choice2, 5));

    pages[4] = new Page(R.drawable.page4,
            new Choice(R.string.page4_choice1, 5),
            new Choice(R.string.page4_choice2, 6));

    pages[5] = new Page(R.drawable.page5, R.string.page5);

    pages[6] = new Page(R.drawable.page6, R.string.page6);


It says cannot resolve symbol 'page6' and i can't figure out why. This is the code directly from the github repo. I've looked at all my other code, and there aren't any errors. Am I missing something here?

Which page6? The drawable or the string? Android Studio should be telling you which. Check both that there's a page6 in drawable and that there is a string for page6 in strings.xml. No typos.

Oh jeez....just some attention to detail....spend so much time looking at all the other code...and simply didn't have this in strings.xml

<string name="page6">You arrive home on Earth. While your mission was a success, you forever wonder what was sending that signal. Perhaps a future mission will be able to investigate…</string>

Thanks for the help!
