Android Build a Simple Android App (2014) Creating the Screen Layout Setting Colors

I failed to get the correct answer for the challenge for several times and I don't know where I am going wrong

how can I get the correct answer on setting colors

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:id="@+id/textView1"
    androidayout_height="wrap_content"
    android:layout_centerHorizontal="true"
    android:layout_centerVertical="true"
    android:text="Treehouse loves me!"
    android:textSize="72sp" />


  <textColor
      android:layout_heightt="wrap_content"
    android:layout_centerHorizontal="true"
    android:layout_centerVertical="true"
    android:text="Treehouse loves me!"
    android:textSize="72sp" 
‚Äč                       android:textColor:color/white" />

First of all change textColor to textView. Then your color line should be <p>

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

Pretty close,

It should be TextView, not textView.

I've encountered a problem on the second part of the challenge. I can't put the color code in the code the proper way. Can one of you guys help?
