Chapter 1: Spongebob`s Quest For The Missing Integer Patty
One day when Spongebob arrived at the Krusty Krab, he saw Mr. Krabs crying. Then Spongebob asked Mr.Krabs what`s wrong, and Mr.Krabs said that the special integer patty is missing, and Spongebob is the only one for the job. As soon as Mr.Krabs stopped talking Spongebob rushed out the door to look for the missing integer patty. Spongebob took his car and Patrick to find the patty. Spongebob and Patrick was driving around the town when they came across a huge gate. Spongebob tried to open gate, then when he touched the gate an integer question appeared: (+12) + (-23): have 12 and owe 23. Spongebob answered the question and the answer that he got is -11. So he yelled out the answer -11 and the gate opened. Then they drove through the open gate and they continued their quest for the missing integer patty.

Then Spongebob and Patrick kept on going. While they were driving they came upon a strange guy waiting for a car, and he was on the side of the highway. So they stopped and gave the guy a ride. As they were driving, the strange guy pulled out a fake gun and he tried to steal the car from Spongebob and Patrick. The strange guy told them to get out of the car, and then the guy drove away with it. Spongebob and Patrick didn`t know what to do so they thought that they should walk, and find someone to help them. While they were walking they saw a bus, and the bus stopped, so they got in. The bus kept on going. Then when the bus was almost near the gas station. Spongebob and Patrick got out. When the bus left they saw a restaurant. Spongebob thought that the integer patty might be inside, but the only way to find out was to check. So they walked over to the restaurant, and as they were going in, a big security guard stopped them. The guard said that they can only get in if they answer the question correctly. The question is (+6) + (-6). Patrick tried to answer the question and his answer is -3, and the guard said that it was wrong. Then Spongebob tried to answer the question, but he didn`t know the answer, so he used a number line to help him.

Then Spongebob said that the answer is 0, because (+6) +(-6) is a zero pair. Spongebob got it right so the guard let them go in.

Spongebob and Patrick didn`t find the integer patty. They kept on on walking and walking, even though it was dark outside. As they were walking they saw two bicycles, and they took it with them. Spongebob and Patrick kept on biking until they saw a bunch of big muscular guys standing in the middle of the road. The big guys stopped Spongebob and Patrick, and the guys said that they can`t go through, and that the only way they can go through is to answer question using tiles, and the question is (-10) + (+2). Spongebob and Patrick arranged the tiles by making zero pairs, and they got 2 zero pairs and there answer is -8. The muscular guys said that they could go in, they also said that they should be careful.

After they got through, Spongebob and Patrick continued their quest for the missing integer patty. Then they kept on biking until they saw a huge bridge. When they got to the bridge, it was closed, and that no one can open it, unless they anser the question in less than 10 seconds. So the question appeared and it was (+8) +(+2). Spongebob answered quickly and he yelled out +10, and he was right, and the bridge door opened. When Spongebob got to the middle of the bridge he saw one fourth of the integer patty, but he couldn`t find the rest.
