Android Build a Simple Android App with Java Basic Android Programming Making a Button Do Something

If I add another button on screen, why does it not listen to this if I click this button instead of the "showFactButton"

I was curious as to the how the listener knows which button is clicked. So i added a random button in the design, ran the project. Clicked on random button, but no new FACT shown. So question is around the listener, why does it not listen/react to if I click this random button instead of the "showFactButton"

did you add an onclicklistener to the button? each one requires its own specific onclicklistener.
