Android Build a Simple Android App Creating the Screen Layout Setting Colors

I am trying to change the Android background color to #fff092b0, and when I put it where it says white, it is wrong?

I am in the Build a Simple Android App section regarding changing background and text color. I am using copy/paste to switch out the where it says 'white' with the color code #fff092b0. I am not sure what else to do.

activity_main.xml
<RelativeLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
  android:layout_width="match_parent"
  android:layout_height="match_parent"
  android:background="@android:color/white" >

  <TextView
    android:textColor="@android:color/white" >      
    android:id="@+id/textView1"
    android:layout_width="wrap_content"
    android:layout_height="wrap_content"
    android:layout_centerHorizontal="true"
    android:layout_centerVertical="true"
    android:text="Treehouse loves me!"
    android:textSize="72sp" />

</RelativeLayout>

Thanks, Benjamin! That fixed it.

You have to replace the white value with the Hexadecimal code android:background="#fff092b0"

@android:color is not typically necessary when using hexadecimal values.
