I don't know how to add files but here is the viewcontroller

import UIKit

class ViewController: UIViewController {

@IBOutlet weak var funFactLabel: UILabel!

let factBook = FackBook()
let colorWheel = ColorWheel()

override func viewDidLoad() {
    // Do any additional setup after loading the view, typically from a nib.
    funFactLabel.text = factBook.randomFact()


override func didReceiveMemoryWarning() {
    // Dispose of any resources that can be recreated.

@IBAction func showFunFact() {

    view.backgroundColor = colorWheel.randomColor()
    funFactLabel.text = factBook.randomFact()
