Partitive divide

Answers to give a quotient

You divide numbers

__Quotative Division__

*Free Verse Poetry*

Quotative division is how many groups of this is in this

When I think of that i would want to take off my hat

When there are negatives I change them into positives

I do this because it is easier and more squeezier

Quotative Division is not as hard as Partitive Divison

Because you don't have to explain a lot.

You can take the drawings and cook them in a pot.

__The "Rule for Multiplying" integers__

*Free Verse Poetry*

Once upon a time, there lived a shoe

That shoe liked to eat tofu

One day,when he was sitting on his porch

He saw a sock with a torch

Shoe approached the thing

And the sock was about to sing

It was singing,"When you multiply an even amount of negative integers the product is positive."

Shoe understood what he said and asked for the other rule instead

It sang,"When you multiply an odd amount of negative integers the product is negative"

Shoe was amazed by these rules, he decided that he would teach fools

Shoe taught many things about these rules that sock sang

Then there was a BANG!

Shoe was dead, sock had killed him!

**Chapter 2:Combining like terms and the Distributive Property**Hobo:Excuse me, do you have any spare change for me?

Cory:No, I'm sorry man, I only have enough for my lunch.

Hobo:Its alright. So you going to school?

Cory:Yes, I am on my way to get educated. Why are you asking?

Hobo:Oh, I was just wondering. Don't ruin your life because you will become like me.

Cory:Oh I see. Do you want to learn some math? I have 2 questions for you.

Hobo: Sure, what is the first question?

Cory:It is n+3-5n+12. All you need to do is simplify it for me please.

Hobo:Oh ok then. Lets see, if I combine the like terms and do this and that I would get -6n+15 as my answer. I'm sure of it.

Cory:I'm sorry dude but the answer you came up with is wrong. See you have to combine the like terms which are n and -5n. The answer should be -4n. Next, you should combine 3 and 12 and you would get the sum of 15. When you do all of this thinking, you should get -4n+15 as the simplified form of n+3-5n+12.

Hobo:Wow, you are smart kid! You, showed me up for sure man. Thanks for teaching me how to do this question. Now, what is the other question, hopefully I get this one right.

Cory: Thank you and your very welcome. I'm glad you learned a lot form just that one question. The next question is 2+4(3n+8). This question has to do with distributive property. Good luck!

Hobo:Hmm, this is a hard question but I am thinking the answer is 12n+10. Please tell me I got this question right.

Cory:I'm sorry to burst your bubble again dude. First, you need to find the distributive property which is 4(3n+8). When you multiply 4 and 3n you get 12n and if you multiply 4 and 8 you get 32. Now, the question should be 2+12n+32. Next you combine the like terms which in this case is 2 and 32. The sum should be 34. The simplified form of the question should be 12n+34. You feeling me right now?

Hobo: Oooooh, so I needed to multiply 8 and 4 too. That's what I forgot to do.

Cory:You are exactly right buddy boy.

Hobo: I learned a lot today. Thanks kid.

Cory:Anytime buddy. Hey, I just found a 100 dollar bill in my back pocket. Here you go, you can have it.

Hobo:Thank you very much kid.

Cory:No problem. I'm going to get on my way now. Good bye.

Hobo:Have a nice day!

Hobo:Have a nice day!

Joysie 817said...Great Poems! I liked your last one the best. I liked how it rhymed and how it came together. And I also liked how you made the titles blue. It really made it stand out.

I found some minor spelling/ grammar mistakes, though. And there was a lot of space between the poems which I think can be fixed easily. And it wouldn't hurt to add some colour.

But other than that, I thin k you did a great job. ☻
