Unresolved class StoryActivity, and cannot resolve symbol R

I just got these two errors after adding details in the Creating the Story Layout video. The app still runs! I'm not sure how much this actually affects the project. I believe the package lines are correct, so I'm not sure why the xml files can't find the StoryActivity.

I'm unsure how to post code in the fancy box, but for now here it is:

<android.support.constraint.ConstraintLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"

And the last line is the unresolved class. I'm aware of the 'interative' typo, and it's in all my files, so I don't believe that's the problem - but if you know a simple way to change all of those, I'd love to learn it!

This is also happening in the AndroidManifest.xml file, for both MainActivity and StoryActivity

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<manifest xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"

        <activity android:name=".MainActivity">
                <action android:name="android.intent.action.MAIN" />

                <category android:name="android.intent.category.LAUNCHER" />
        <activity android:name=".StoryActivity"></activity>


I am not sure how to fix it! Please let me know if you do.
