Take a deck of cards

Give them equally out

to everyone there

until you have no

more cards

Hard but fun to learn

Negatives and Positives

Easy after learned

(Free Verse)

If there are a even amount

of negative or integers the

sum will be positive

If there is a odd amount of

negative integers the

product shall be negative

If a zero is involved the

product shall be a zero

Chapter 2: (xtra normal did not work)

Yusei: I am ready for any questions you got.
Jack: Oh really?
Yusei: Yes
Jack: Try this one then
Jack:
n+3-5n+12.
Yusei: Sure give me a few minutes.
Jack: Okay.
Jack: Wrong, now take a few minutes to figure out the right answer.
Yusei: okay...
Yusei: I know where I went wrong, I added the n to the -5n. But I should have subtracted the n from the -5n. Which makes it -4n+15.
Jack: Yes young one.
Yusei: See I'm good.
Jack: But you still have a second question.
Yusei: ahh...
Jack: here it is. 2 + 4(3n+8)
Yusei: This is a harder one... give me some more time.
Jack: Okay
Jack: ( 10 minutes later) Are you done yet?
Yusei: I've been done 8 minutes ago.
Jack: Then what were you doing?
Yusei: Watching Television.
Yusei:
12n + 10!
Jack: Wrong
Yusei: ahh man.
Jack: Here is the right answer
Jack:
12n + 34
Yusei: hmm....
Yusei: Yes I do...
Jack: Okay what is it?
Yusei: I forgot to multiply 8 by 4 , then add the extra 2, which would have made 34.
Jack: Very well done.
Yusei: Hmm? but I got all the questions wrong.
Jack: But you found what your mistakes were.
Jack: That is what math is all about, learning from your mistakes.
Yusei: I get it now...
Jack: That is what matters
Jack: Well I'm off
Yusei: c ya
Jack: bye
Yusei: ...
