Sally: Hey , Herbert!

Herbert: Hey Sally.

Sally: I had a math test today! I think i did VERY WELL!

Herbert: What questions were on the test Sally?

Sally: Well one question was N+3-5n+12. Thats pretty easy!

Herbert: Well , yes it is... If you know how to do it. How did you answer it?

Sally: Well i got -6n+15 ! It was really easy..

Herbert: Hmm , that does seem right. Well wouldnt it be -4+15

Sally: Well how did you get that?!

Herbert: Well , its simple. What i did was , I put the 2 variables together, so it was n-5n which is -4n and then i did 3+12 which is 15 so the answer would be -4n + 15.

Sally: are you sure?

Herbert: well im pretty sure it's correct , I took Advanced math!

Sally: Well you must be right then , but i must of got the next question right! 2 + 4(3n+8) and i got 12n plus 10 as my answer

Herbert: Hmm , well then Sally. I think you need some help with your math! That's not correct!

Sally: WHAT! It has to be. I thought I did good in math. Can you help me? What would the answer be?

Herbert: Well the question was , 2 + 4(3n+8) right? Well i would of done.. 4 times 3n which equals 12n. Then i would've done 4 times 8 which is 32. then i would've done. So now that you have 12n and 32 you would bring down the 2 + so the question is now 2+12n+32 then you would add 2+32 which is 34 then 12n. So your answer now is 12n+34! Do you get it?

Sally: YEAH ! I DO! Wow , i cant believe i made that mistake! Well thanks for your help!

Math movie!

Great Job on your scribe. I really like your story. You explained the questions really well. But, your not supposed to start a new one you just use your old post, chapter one, then put chapter 2 in the bottom.
