But when you add them
It is very hard for me
change it to get your answer

Partitive Division: (Cinquian)

Dividing Numbers

Ron's Rule: (Free Verse)

Ron's rule is very easy you see
so if you get this wrong you better retreat
If you get a negative sign in a question
your answer is negative
But if you get positive with another positive
your answer is positive
so don't be cruel about Ron's Rule because his right
now its time to take a rest and do what's right for you and I .

Chapter 2 : Combining like terms and the Distributive Property

Nick : Hello

Clair : Hello

Nick : do you know any algebra ?

Clair : yes i do, why do you need help on algebra ??

Nick : yes, the questions are so hard

Clair : yes i know, but it is easy if you know what your doing

Nick : yes'

Clair : okay lets get started, whats your algebra question?

Nick : what is n+3-5n+12 ?

Nick : well i think it's (Pause) 2-6n+15, am i right ?

Clair : well let me see uh , n+3-5n+12 , 3n -5n is -15n bring the +12 down then you get -15n +12 then your answer is -15n +12. You probably did 3n -5n is -15n but you changed it to a +15n and -6n add and gets you to +12.

Nick : yeah your right i got it wrong thanks for the correcttion (:

Clair : No problem, you got anymore questions i can help you on ?

Nick : yeah this is the last one, what is 2 + 4(3n+8) ?

Nick : i think its 12n + 10 , am i right ?

Clair : let me check uh, 2 + 4 is 6 then (3n+8) is +24n so its 6 +24 then your answer is 6 +24

Nick : thank you, thank you very much !

Clair : You are welcome, so you got anymore questions i can answer ?

Nick : Nope

Clair : okay, by the way im Clair

Nick : oh hi im Nick

Nick : well see you around (bye)

Clair : Okay bye (bye)

    Good job Clarence. The only problem I found was that your Haiku poem was a bit awkward. Besides that, you did a great job. Keep up the good work. :)
