Error in VM Code on page 237?

Mike In Chicago
In the "Final VM Code" section on page 237 (chapter 11), it includes the following line of code:

"call BankAccount.commission 2"

However, in the high level code that appears on page 236, the commission method is shown to take only 1 argument.  

Since call functions are of the type "call <function name> <number of arguments pushed on stack>", should this actually read "call BankAccount.commission 1"?

BankAccount.commission() is a method so it has the object's pointer as a hidden first argument.

The "push argument 0" is the first argument to commission().
