Chapter 2: Combining Like Terms and Distributive Property

Bok Bok and Poknat are good friends and they were studying the algebra...

Poknat: hello.. how are you??

Bok Bok: good.. how 'bout you?

Poknat: I have a problem in our discussion a while ago, The Distributive Property and Combining Like Terms, did you understand it? can you please help me?

the first question?

Bok Bok: my answer is 4n+15

Poknat: how did you do that?

Bok Bok: I just regroup it and then i rewrite, after i rewrite, i simplified it.

Poknat: ohh... now i get it.

Bok Bok: ok.. now, answer this question, 2+4(3n+8)

Poknat: ok.. positive 4 times 3n is 12n, positive 4 times positive 8 is 32, bring down 2, I will regroup it. 12n+2+32. positive 2 plus positive 32 is positive 34 and then bring down 12, my final answer is 12n+34.. now Bok Bok, am I correct??

Bok Bok: awesome! nice one! your correct! you got it now! just remeber the steps.. ok??

Poknat: I got it now! Thanks Bok Bok!
