CHAPTER 2
Lara-Hello Jackie ! How's it going ?
Jackie-I'm doing good ! And You ?
Lara-Oh man ! I had soo much fun at school today !
Jackie-Really? Why was it soo fun ?
Lara-Because we learned about Algebra ! Didn't you take that in school today ?
Jackie-..I don't know.. I don't pay attention in school..
Lara-Wow.. Im disappointed..
Lara-Well, anyways.. I should teach you , it is quite fun to do !
Jackie- Okay.. fine! But I hope it is fun ..
Lara- Oh don't worry it will !
Lara-Okay, our first question is n+3-5n+12 !
Jackie-Okay let me think... hhmmm..
Jackie-well.. I think it is 6n+15 !
Lara- Haha , nice try Jackie , you were very close ! You see , -5 + n = -4 and 3 + 12 =15 .. so the answer would be -4n+15 !
Jackie- oh .. wow you really know your math huh ?
Lara-yes I do !
Lara-Okay let's do another question !
Jackie-Fine, fine !
Lara-alright, what is 2+4(3n+8)?
Jackie- uhm .. Isn't 12n+10 ?
Lara-Nice try.. again.
Jackie-*sigh*
Lara- What you would do is ,4 times 3n is 12n. Then 4 times 8 is 32. 12 and 32,bring 2+ which is now 2+12n+32, then add 2+32 is 34. So now the question is, 12n+34 !
Jackie- WOW ! Very good Lara ! Thanks alot for helping me out.. Next math class I'll sure pay attenton thanks to you !
