  1. While I applaud their idea, BOTH of the examples in their commercial are incorrect. Not only do they mean "expand," instead of "reduce," the expansion of (x+5)(x-3) is x^2 + 2x - 15. Further, the solution to x^2 = 16 is x = 4 or -4 ("or" in the mathematical sense--colloquially, you would say "and").
