The graphic shows the weight delta being calculated as -1.25, but the value should be -1.275.

In step 4, our givens are:

input = 8.5
weight = .1
goal = 1.0

so our calculations should be:

predicted value = .85
raw error = -0.15
weight delta = input x raw error = 8.5 x -0.15 = -1.275


this also means that step 5 should show a new weight of 0.11275
