Total, Combined
Combined.

Subracting Integers

Subtract Integers
Change the opposite.

Quotative

Just like division
How many will fit into
Number thats chosen.

Partative

Partative division
Is like sharing cards among friends
Giving out evenly to each person
Sharing and giving.

Rule

Mel's Rock pile is always the best
because it always helps you on a test
When theirs odd amount of negative integers
When theirs even amounts

Chapter 2.
Combining like terms and the Distributive Property

YOMAMA:Hey Weezy whatcha doing?

Weezy:Oh nothing just trying to study for my math test tomorrow.

YOMAMA:Oh really do you need any help?

Weezy:Well on this question n+3-5n+12 do you know it? i don't really get it.

YOMAMA:hmmm.. oh i think its -6n+15 im pretty shure.

Weezy:oh really how, did you get it?

YOMAMA:oh well first I regrouped it so that the variable is with the variable like this, n-5n+3+12.

Weezy:oh okay.

YOMAMA:Then i added the variables together like this, n+-5n which equaled, -6n, because the n still counted as a number which was one.

Weezy:Oh i think im catching on.

YOMAMA:then i added the positive 3 to positive 12 which was 15. So my answer would be -6 +15.

Weezy:Oh i get it now thanks alot ive been having a hard time in algebra

YOMAMA:no problem if you need help on anymore just tell me.

Weezy:Well there is one more.

YOMAMA:Oh really which one?

Weezy:Oh um this one its, 2 + 4(3n+8)

YOMAMA:Oh that one is really easy.

Weezy:oh really can u help me then?

YOMAMA:Oh well the answer is 12n + 10.

Weezy:oh but how did you get that because tomorrow is the test and the teacher said this question is gonna be on the test.

YOMAMA:Oh first i rearanged the +2 to the back like this 4 (3n+8)+2

Weezy:oh ok

YOMAMA:then i had to multiply the four to the numbers in the brackets like this, 4 times 3n Which equals 12n because you always have to bring the variable. then i multiplied 3 to 8 which equaled 24. Then i added the 2 at the back to the 24 because, it had no variable. Which equaled 26. you get the answer of 12n +26

Weezy:Oh really that sounds so easy. but that isn't the answer you told me earlier.

YOMAMA:OH! you are right the first answer i told you was wrong. sorry, but do you understand how to answer it?

Weezy:Oh it 's ok, and ya i get it thanks a lot!

YOMAMA:no problem! well i gotta go my homies are waiting for me

Good job, I liked your poems, they were great. Especially the last one when you talked about Mel's rock pile. But you made a spelling mistake, you should fix that. Good job again.
