**Hi Magdalena!**

Palito:

**Magdalena:**Hi Palito!! How are you? How is it going?

**Palito:**uuuhhmm...I'm having a trouble about solving our Algebra homework.

**Magdalena:**Ooohh..i see, you're having a problem about combining like terms and distributive property.

**Palito:**right, cause i don't understand it very well.

**Magdalena:**Okay, do you need help? I can help you.

**Palito:**Really?, can you help me with this problem.. n + 3 - 5n + 12

**Magdalena:**oohh,, it's easy man..

**Palito:**really? but I can't get it.

**Magdalena:**the answer is -6n + 15

**Palito:**Oh okay, but i dont know how to solve it.

**Magdalena:**first, find the like terms and then regroup it

**.**

**Palito:**so, n - 5 and 3 + 12 the like terms, right?

**Magdalena:**right, and then after finding the like terms and regrouping it, we could already simplify it, and bring us to the answer -6n + 15

**Palito:**Oh i see, now I could understand combining like terms, but I have left another problem, the distributive property.

**Magdalena:**yoo man, that's pretty easy.

**Palito:**I don't think so man.

**Magdalena:**yah man, it's easy, try to answer this question.. 2 + 4 (3n + 8)

**Palito:**uuhhhmm.. Let me think for a while

**.**

**Magdalena:**Okay man, go for the gold, you can do it, think!!!

**Palito:**uhhmm.. according to my knowledge.. the answer is 12n + 10

**Magdalena:**sorry man, i think your knowledge is wrong, but peace man, spread the love man, the answer is 12n + 34

**Palito:**how could that be? Can you tell me how to do it right??

**Magdalena:**yah sure, why not?

**Palito:**Okay, I'm listening

**...**

**Magdalena:**first, leave the 2 and then you should multiply 4 and 3n and then multiply 4 and 8, and it could led us to the answer 12n + 32, and then combine the like terms and it'll led us to the answer 12n + 34. Got it??

**Palito:**Ooh yah!!, now iI understand it, it's pretty easy like what you've said. I thank you very much for helping me. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!

**Magdalena:**Holy!!! No problem, I love helping my friends

**!**

**Okay!! Thanks again man! BYE-BYE!!!**
