formatting error with showFactButton

I cant figure out how to format the showFactButton in the challenge task, I tried to farmat it like the factTextView, but it didn't work, any suggestions?
import android.os.Bundle;
import android.view.View;
import android.widget.Button;
import android.widget.TextView;

public class FunFactsActivity extends Activity {

    public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {

        // Declare our View variables and assign them the Views from the layout file
        TextView factLabel = (TextView) findViewById(;
        Button showFactButton;
        Button factLabel = (Button) findViewbyId(;

You still need to use the name showFactButton instead of 'factLabel` (as well as get rid of the double declaration).
