### Gerico's Integer Story

8:34 PM

Once upon a time there were lots of sports car in the Gerico's sport cars bit the problem is lots of the cars are not moving at all either you put a gas oil or anything the car move .Gerico have 18,481 sports car in his shop,one minute later their was a guy named carlos and try to have a deal on the yellow 2009 chevrolet corvett that cost 50,000 dollars.Carlos react he said how about 25,000 dollars gerico said 'oh common ',thats so cheap man,and maybe i can give you chevrolet malibu.Carlos thinks what the good deal is.Carlos wants the corvett and they have a deal of 49,000 dollars and a additional of teaching him to add and subtract integers every week.

Carlos go back on Gerico's shop and completing a deal of 49,000 dollars with an additional of teaching lessons for one year carlos go to gerico's office having apen and a paper on his hand
gerico's first question was, whats the sign for negative.You put like a minus sign on it.How do you know it though?because Mr.Harbeck teach me that thing yesterday.

I'm going to give you an example of adding negative integers and yry to answer it by your self Gerico'said.

-2 + -9= -11

-5 + -8 = -13

-13 + -7 = -20

You are right carlos good job!but can you explain it to me how did you get those answers Gerico 'said.
For example the first question they have the same sign and you just have to add it negative 2 plus negative 9 gives you negative 11.

Carlos you really did a good job!keep up the good work.The contract between gerico and carlos have been settled done carlos have left driving a brand new sports car and a lesson that he will never forgot.

Few minutes later a guy come and looking for a truck his name was justin.Justin is looking to have a deal with the white chevy silverado and a package of teaching him how to add positive integers justin have a deal with gerico and the lesson will start tommorow morning.

On the following day justin came back to the shop .Justin walks through gerico's office.What do you put for the positive sign?Give ma 2 ways how to do it.

For example 18 you can just simply put 18 and another thing is you will put plus sign before the number.

How do you know this things justin?gerico said.when i was in grade 7 Mr. Isfeld teach me those.
So' i will give you an example and try to answer it.

+2 + +9 = +11

+17 + +5 = +22

+29 + + +16 = +45

Your work i well done justin!thank you justin said.

One week after the deal carlos and justin go back to gerico's shop and complaining about their cars.Justin said why is my truck not starting.I don't know maybe there's a code on it.What's the code the two guys said maybe its the lesson that i teach you guys gerico said.What is it?carlos says.The only lesson that we don't study is the meaning of integers justin said.Your right justin we can solve that problem if you guys know what integers mean.Justin and carlos ask gerico if he knows what does Integer means.Carlos and justin have no idea what integer is.The only man that can solve it is gerico because he's good in math.I got it he shouts ''Integer are the set of numbers consisting the natural numbers including positives 0,1,2,3......and their negatives-0,-1,-2,-3 etc.The two cars started to start and move carlos and justin are so thankful to gerico,first the car and the most important one learning about integers.

I agree with justin, you could have added a few pictures and used better grammer. Still, great story though.
