Hello,

In both the problems you have mentioned above, they have used the D1 that is Next Dividend.

In the first problem they have mentioned that the company will pay dividend of \$6 and have not yet paid, so it means it the dividend of next year.
However, in the second problem they have mentioned that they have paid the dividend of \$3 for the past 12 month that means it is D0 and not D1 (Next Dividend), so to arrive at next dividend they multiplied it by growth rate (1 + 0.06).

So basically in both the problems, the dividend used was Next Dividend.
