Once upon a time, there was these 2 teens named Paul, and his bestfriend Patrick. They were into basketball. So they decided to buy a nice balltogether and share. So they headed off to Sport check. Paul wanted a pro board. But Paul wasn't sure if they had saved up enough money. But luckily, there was a sale that said "answer this question and get 50% off any branded ball accessories".Patrick wasn't so good at math, so Paul had to answer the questions. First question was (+12)+(-16)= ...... So Paul was thinking. He drew out the question on a scrap piece of paper

So Paul got the question correct. The answer was -3. But now Paul had to buy wheels and bearings. He wanted to save money so he answered another question. The question was(+3 ) + (-4)= .... So Paul drew out the question on the same scrap paper.

Paul got the question right. So he saved 50% of his money already. He would have enough money left to buy trucks for the ball, if he answers the next question right. (+4)+(+3)= ...... So Paul did the samething again.

Patrick had got the answer correct and they were able to buy their dream board with the 50% question game. Now they are HAPPY!

TO BE CONTINUED......

Chie good use of visuals. It helped to see the math on paper after reading your story. Very creative.
