Error when I attempt to run app...

When I try to launch the app within the generator I get this error:

Error:(11, 17) Execution failed for task ':app:processDebugResources'.

I can see the android:id="@+id" in the xml file, but don't know what to do from there. Please help.

Hi Cody,

Can you paste your activity_fun_facts.xml file in here, please?

Thanks,
