In this video, I use calculus and some basic algebra to augment the graphical intuition from Lecture 16 on compensating and equivalent variation.

For a list of videos and links to them (organized by topic), check out the Intromediate Microeconomics video web page: http://blog.thisyoungeconomist.com/p/learn-microeconomics.html
