HEY me and dean decides to make a rap to go along with the poems. I hope you appreciate it.

Jeremy:HEEEEEEEY you look smart want to help me out
Allan:SURE.....whats your problem
Jeremy:i have this really hard math question
Allan:whats the question?
Jeremy:its .......n+3-5n+12 i think it is -6n+15 but my friend said i was wrong can you tell me the answer
Allan:well let me think........ the answer is -4n+15
Jeremy:how do you know its -4n+15?
Allan:because......if you group like terms you get -5n+n+3+12, -5n+n is -4 and 3+12 is 15 you put it together and you get -4n+15
Jeremy:Oh i get my mistake i thought it was n+5n+3+12 so my answer was 6n+15.......okay, that explains that question, but what about 2+4(3n+8)
Allan:okay so this question has something called the distributive property. First you drop down the 2 then you multiply 4 and 3n which is positive12 after you multipy 4 and 8 which is 32 it should now be 2+12n+32.....after you should know you put like terms together which would make it 12n+2+32, and you just do simple adding 2 plus 32 is 34 and you just drop the your answer should be 12n+34
Jeremy:OH okay, that makes sense i thought you add 2 and four so i put 6 multiplied by 3 then 6 multiplied by 8 which mad my answer 18n+48 now i know i was wrong..........hey thanks for all your help by the way my name is Jeremy
Allan:well your welcome and my name is Allan

NOW the movie
