Error on Instruction page for Medical and Dental Expenses Deduction

When I click on "Learn More" for Medical Expenses, 

On the "Medical and Dental Expenses Deduction" under "How do I figure out this deduction?" it states:

"Example: Your AGI is $50,000 and you have $6,000 in medical expenses. You can't deduct the first $5,000 (or $50,000 x 7.5%)"

 

However, $50,000 x 7.5% = $3,500 not $5,000.

 

That is all. 

I just want to help Turbo Tax correct an error for others.

Have a nice day.

(It would be nice if I was informed that TT actually did make this correction.)

The calculation is correctly done in TurboTax, but the instruction/explanation is still wrong, as of 3/9/21.  This is really sloppy and confusing to your users.  Please update this now, since it can be very confusing.

Example: Your AGI is $50,000 and you have $6,000 in medical expenses. You can't deduct the first $5,000, which is 10% of your AGI, but you can deduct anything over that.
