android studio xml not inflating correctly (fatal error

i’ve used the navigation bar template by android studio and tried to modify some things around – but not the inflaters are not working and I get a fatal error. Does anyone know what might be wrong? I’ve been trying to fix this for hours and nothing is working.

the XML file:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

<androidx.drawerlayout.widget.DrawerLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    xmlns:app="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res-auto"
    xmlns:tools="http://schemas.android.com/tools"
    android:id="@+id/drawer_layout"
    android:layout_width="match_parent"
    android:layout_height="match_parent"
    android:fitsSystemWindows="true"
    tools:openDrawer="start">

    <include
        android:id="@+id/app_bar_main"
        layout="@layout/app_bar_main"
        android:layout_width="match_parent"
        android:layout_height="match_parent" />

<com.google.android.material.navigation.NavigationView
    android:id="@+id/nav_view"
    android:layout_width="wrap_content"
    android:layout_height="match_parent"
    android:layout_gravity="start"
    android:fitsSystemWindows="true"
    app:headerLayout="@layout/nav_header_main"
    app:menu="@menu/activity_main_drawer" />
</androidx.drawerlayout.widget.DrawerLayout>

the java file:

public class MainActivity extends AppCompatActivity {
private AppBarConfiguration mAppBarConfiguration;
private ActivityMainBinding binding;

    super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);

    this is part of android jetpack!

    binding = ActivityMainBinding.inflate(getLayoutInflater());  // inflate method creates an instance of the binding class for this activity to use
    setContentView(binding.getRoot());   // getRoot: a reference to the root view and passing it to setcontentview to make it the active view on the screen
                                         // the root view for this app is activity_main.xml

    });

    NavigationView navigationView = binding.navView;

    // Passing each menu ID as a set of Ids because each menu should be considered as top level destinations.
    mAppBarConfiguration = new AppBarConfiguration.Builder(R.id.nav_home, R.id.nav_gallery, R.id.nav_slideshow)
            .setOpenableLayout(drawer)
            .build();

    NavigationUI.setupActionBarWithNavController(this, navController, mAppBarConfiguration);
    NavigationUI.setupWithNavController(navigationView, navController);
}

@Override
public boolean onCreateOptionsMenu(Menu menu) {
    // Inflate the menu; this adds items to the action bar if it is present.
    getMenuInflater().inflate(R.menu.main, menu);
    return true;
}

@Override
public boolean onSupportNavigateUp() {
    NavController navController = Navigation.findNavController(this, R.id.nav_host_fragment_content_main);
    return NavigationUI.navigateUp(navController, mAppBarConfiguration) || super.onSupportNavigateUp();
}
}
