### Carrie's Integer Story

Sunday, October 26, 2008
The day started as another typical day for Dora The Explorer, waking up in the mourning, getting dressed, and then leaving with Boots. Dora was told by her mom to bring her grandma some cookies because she wasn't feeling that well. She searched for the basket of cookies but she could not find them anywhere! Instead she found a note saying "To find the basket of cookies you must solve this math question: (-22)+(+16)+(-3)= ___ " Boots and Dora try their hardest to figure it out, and in a few minutes they solved it! Their answer was...

All of a sudden another note was found on the table saying "Your mother has just finished cooking them in the oven, they are on the ledge of the window cooling but you must put them into the basket." As Dora and Boots were taking the cookies and putting them inside the basket, they saw Swiper trying to sneak around to steal some cookies!! But instead of saying "Swiper no swiping" they gave him an integer question, dun dun dunnn ! The question read (+12)+(0)+(2)=__ . Swiper couldn't solve the question and ran away in fear! Dora and Boots solved the question just for the fun of it, the answer they got was...

Just as they were leaving the house Dora and Boots felt strange, like they were missing something... But they didnt know what it was! They left the house and closed the door thinking the strange feeling they were having wasn't important. They were walking on the sidewalk singing, as usual, and then Tico the squirrel comes running up to them panicing! Tico yells "RUN! RUN!" Tico is running as fast as he could down the hill, chasing after Boots and Dora. They run for their lives down the hill, and then ... Big integer chips are rolling down then hill! They have to count how many postive numbers are rolling down the hill and the negative chips too, and add them up to make them stop rolling down the hill. (-12) negative chips rolled down the hill and (+5) positive chips rolled down the hill. They figured the question was (-12)+(+5)=__. They added quickly using the integer chips, and finally figured it out! "We are saved!!!" they yelled in joy!
It is 9:30 in the mourning and Dora says there's is more time in the world to get to grandma's house! In the next few minutes, she checks her wrist watch to see the time, but then this time she looks up she saw Swiper again trying to get some delicious cookies! He used Dora and Boots' plan to get some, he gave them a integer question and only 30 seconds to do it because he was soo sure it was impossible!! (0)+(0)=__. and .... They solve in with 10 seconds to spare!! Again, Swiper runs away with fear and wondering how they solved it.

"Oh my gosh!!" Dora said. "I forgot my keys to my house! That was the weird feeling I had earlier! Ohh no, what am I going to do?" .... TO BE CONTINUED (;
Continuation:
We're almost there (Grandma's house!!) I have to hurry, before mom leaves the house for work!! They get to her house. Dora and Boots knock on the locked door, yelling "Grandma, open the door! Hurry." Grandma doesn't come to the door right away, while waiting a bird flies towards them and drops a piece of paper. It read: (-3)+(-12)+(+17)=__ You must answer this question and you will find the key that opens the door. Dora yells out the answer right away, "The answer is positive 2! Mysteriously Grandma opens the door.
"Grandma, we brought you some cookies! Oh yeah, we're kind of in a hurry and need to get back home soon! I just found out that I forgot my keys at home." Dora says quickly.
"You kids can use my phone! It is right there in the living room." replies grandma.
"Oh yes, I forgot that we could call home from here!!! Thank you!" said Dora.
Dora and Boots run as fast as they could, trying not to break anything valuable on the drawers. They find a note lying on the telephone saying "Sorry but the phone does not working momentarily, if you do want to connect it right now please hold 2 down."
Dora picks up the phone and listens for the dial tone. She hold the number 2 down, just like the note said to. There is a voice on the phone, a mans voice.
“If you want to connect the phone now please answer this question: (+4)-(+1)=__”
Dora knew this question right away!
She calls her mom, her mom is luckily there and Dora and Boots get home safely! The end... or is it?
