### Kristin's Big Book of Algebra

8:05 PM

Chapter 1 : Integer poetry

Positives and negatives
Cancel each other

Partitive Division - Free Verse

Partitive division
Is like dealing cards
How many equal parts
Are in two groups
When we have
Negative six?

Subtracting Integers - Tanka

It does not exist
Subtracting integers is
Not hard now that you know how

Quotative Division - Haiku

How many groups of
Positive seven are in
Positive fourteen?

Rules for Multiplying - Free Verse

When multiplying integers
And there is an even amount of
Negative integers, or no negative integers
The product is positive

If there is an odd amount
Of negative integers
The product is negative

Chapter Two:

Combining like terms and the Distributive Property

Hi! Just so you know(if you didn't already), my characters are Sakka and Momo(I know he's a lemur) from Avatar. Also(again, if you didn't already know) Sakka in a guy.

Sakka: Hi Momo!

Momo: Hey Sakka!

Sakka: Hey Momo, I was wondering.... Is n+3-5n+12 simplified, -6n+15?

Momo: AHAHAH! Ha ha ha lol ha ha!

Sakka: Waaa! If I'm wrong just tell me!

Momo: You're wrong.

Sakka: Waaa!What did I do wrong?

Momo: You added the positive n to the negative 5n instead of canceling(zero pairs).

Sakka: Well then, what should I have done?

Momo: Well first you regroup it. It would then be n-5n+3+12.

Sakka: Ok...
Momo: Then you add the variables and the integers. So n-5n would be -4n, and 3+12 is 15. So it would be -4n+15.
Sakka: Wow! You can solve anything!
Mom: Well yes. Almost...

Sakka: Can you help me with this question? 2+4(3n+8).
Momo: Well first I multiply the 3n and the 8 by 4 because the 4 was touching the bracket. Then I brought down the two and got 2+12n+32.
Sakka: That makes sense.
Momo: Next I combine the like terms, so it will be 12n+2+32.
Sakka: Yeah...
Momo: Which means my final simplified answer is 12n+34.
Sakka: What?! How did you get that? I thought it was 12n + 10?
Momo: Oh, you must have forgotten to multiply the 8. Its ok.
Momo: sigh, fine.

Chapter 3

Hi there! These are the questions I chose to do:

• Additive - 6+n = 9

• Subtractive - -3 = -6+n

• Multiplicative - 2n = 10

• Divisive - n/3 = 4

Remember, what you do to one side, you must do to the other.

Subtractive - -3 = -6+n

Multiplicative - 2n = 10

Divisive - n/3 = 12

Chapter 4

Yay! It's our video! I really hope you enjoy watching it. Sorry for all the mistakes. I did not get enough sleep. \(-_-\)

Again, sorry for the mistakes in the video, but I really hoped you enjoyed watching it and reading my post. If my computer miraculously lets me put the video up then I will, but until then thanks for reading!
