CHAPTER ONE: INTEGER STORY
Combining, Put together, Gaining
Positive and Negative
Losing, Taking Away, Reducing
It's better to change the sign
changing to adding
Divide, Share, Give Out To
It is like a deck of card
Division integers are really easy
you just have to divide
KALLY: Hey what’s Julie?
JULIE: OH nothing much, Just doing my math homework.
KALLY: Do you need some help?
JULIE: Yahh, This ALGEBRA is so hard.
KALLY: Well Let's see your paper.
JULIE: Umm... here you go... The Question is n+3-5n+12
KALLY: ohhh... i see you... you actually got the answer wrong.
JULIE: But i thought it was -6n+15.
KALLY: no... Well you are surpose to simplify it... there is no equal sign there
JULIE: Well i thought we were surpose to add them or something
KALLY: Here is how you do it.. First you have to you have to group the variables and numbers. You also have to put them in order so it will be easier.
After doing that the expression should be -5n + n + 3 + 12. ok
JULIE: Okay i think i get it
KALLY: add the numbers, and finish simplifying the question.
JULIE: Ok I'll do that
KALLY: Add the two leftover numbers, 3 and 12, we get 15. To finish answering this question, you have to add both the answer from the variables and the numbers. Then the answer comes out to -4n + 15.
JULIE : ok then on to the next question
