in the first Video Review, she correctly identified that x should be multiplied on both sides of the equation, but on the left, she starts with x(6x - 2/x) and ends with 6x - 2, instead of 6x^2 - 2. She makes this same error again in the next example problem taking x + 1(4x - 2/(x+1)) to get 4x - 2 instead of 4x^2 + 4x - 2. She does the method correctly on the second video. Hoping they fix the first video soon. (posted 4-18-16)

Great examples followed by great questions
