Adding Integers(Haiku)

Adding integers,
look for the zero pairs,
comebine integers.

Subtracting Integers(Haiku)

add the opposite,
we have to change the sign to,
negative or positive,
no such this is subtracting,
never subtract integer.

chapter two:

Bell:Hello anne
Anne:Hi. bell.
Bell:Can you help me with my algebra problem.
Anne:Sure.
Bell:Here n+3-3n+12.
Anne:Ohh that's easy, you just have to follow the rules in combining algebraic expressions, you can only combine similar terms, by adding or subtracting their numerical coefficient, and then you have to follow the rules in addition and subtraction of integers n-5n+12+3 by subtracting n-5n we get -4n and by 2+3 you will get +15 remember that n is like 1n.
Bell:Ohh i get now, Thanks
Anne: Here I`ll give you another question, 2+4(3n+8).
Bell:An this one I'm going to use distributive law of multiplication that is to multiply 4 to the terms inside the brackets, if you multiply 4 and 3 we get 12n and 4 and 8 we get 32 so the answer is 12n+32 but we are going to distribute 4 to each going to each term inside the brackets, we have now 2+12n+32 and combining similar terms: 12n+32+2 so we add 32+2 we get 34 so the answer is 12n+34. Annie: Good Job!!
Bell: Thanks again!!

Nice job Lance! All of your poems were great but you are missing the "Rule for Multiplying" poem, and your subtracting poem is a little too long, but other than that, nice work!
