Love this video! Thank you for making it clear and easy to follow. Math is not my strong point. I still struggle at the clinic I work at on occasion. But I feel like with watching these videos things will be picked up easier.

I would like to see you leave all the labels on as you are doing your math. We are trying to teach students to make sure things cross cancel to simplify the math process. Many people have a lot of trouble with dose calculations.
