import android.app.Activity; import android.os.Bundle; import android.view.Menu; import android.view.MenuItem; import android.view.View; import android.widget.Button; import android.widget.TextView;

public class FunFactsActivity extends Activity {

protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {

   // Declare our View variables and assign them the Views from the layout file
    final TextView factLable = (TextView) findViewById(R.id.factTextView);
    Button showFactLable = (Button) findViewById(R.id.showFactButton);
    View.OnClickListener listener = new View.OnClickListener() {
        public void onClick(View view) {
            //the button was clicked, so update te fact label with a new fact
            String fact = "Ostriches can run faster than horses.";


The showFactButton part says it cannot resolve symbol...

Looks like you accidentally named your Button "showFactLable". Try changing it to "showFactButton" where you're declaring it.
