Android Build a Simple Android App (2014) Coding the Fun Facts Using an Array

My code is getting the "symbol error", on the randomGenerator variable.

String[] sports = { "Basketball", "Baseball", "Tennis" }; String bestSport = "Basketball"; String fact = ""; Random randomGenerator = new Random(); int numberOfSports = randomGenerator.nextInt(sports.length); fact = sports [numberOfSports];

That's my code, but it's not working.

Array.java
String[] sports = { "Basketball", "Baseball", "Tennis" };
String bestSport = "Basketball";
String fact = "";
Random randomGenerator = new Random();
int numberOfSports = randomGenerator.nextInt(sports.length);
fact = sports [numberOfSports];
