Hello,

You need to make sure you put the button within the RelativeLayout tags, so if you move the </RelativeLayout> you should be able to finish the challenge.

You are closing the RelativeLayout before your Button code here:

<RelativeLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
  android:layout_width="match_parent"
  android:layout_height="match_parent" >

  <TextView
    android:layout_width="wrap_content"
    android:layout_height="wrap_content" />

  <Button
    android:layout_width="wrap_content"
    android:layout_height="wrap_content" />

</RelativeLayout>
