Chapter 2: Combining Like Terms and Distributive Property

Leah: Hey Bella! Can you help me with my math homework?

Bella: Sure thing, which question do you need help on?

Leah: Number 5. The question was n+3-5n+12

Bella: Oh, that was easy!

Leah: No not really, I tried it but I'm not sure if I got it right or not

Bella: Well what was your answer?

Leah: My answer turned out to be -6n+15

Bella: What?! My answer was -4n+15

Leah: Oh, I must have made a mistake. I will change it.

Bella: NO, you must know how to fix your mistakes! You see, you circle the two like terms which was n and -5n. After you must put it in order, -5n+n+3+12.

Leah: Yeah, I did put it in order ...

Bella: I know, but I'm not done yet. When you tried to solve -5n+n, you thought that it was -6n. You see, the term n by itself is one term. So, you must solve it like an integer question.

Leah: Ohh, I see now. So my mistake was that I added the n to-5 which made my answer -6n.

Bella: That's correct! You see, combining like terms!

Leah: Thanks Bella.

Bella: No problem! You see, if I never explained this to you then you would of not learn anything

Leah: Yes I know. Thanks again Bella, But I have another homework question I couldn't figure out.

Bella: No problem what question was it?

Leah: Number10. The question was 2 + 4(3n+8). And my answer was 12n + 10.

Bella: Oh! That question.

Leah: Yes that question. And this time, please explain to me what I did wrong.

Bella: Well the answer that I got was 12n+34. The thing that you did wrong was that you didnt multiply the 4 and 8 together. When ever theres brackets, you must multiply both numbers to the same number outside of the bracket.

Leah: Ohh, I get it now.

Bella: No problem! All you have to do is the distibutive property that we did in class the other day.

Leah: That was the thing that I was missing! Thanks alot Bella!

Bella: No problem! Just come to me next time if you have trouble on the other homework that we will have in future.

Leah: I will keep that in mind.

The algebra movie you did with Sutchai was done very well! You guys explained everything clearly that I could understand every step on how to solve it in algebra tiles. Keep up the good work and good job once again! (;
