zachs integer story

Friday, October 31, 2008
I only have $5.00! I want to go buy some candy at Ashcroft. Candy bags are one dollar each and the large keys are one dollar each. I want to buy one bag of candy and one key. Then I see a Red bull in the refridgearator for $2.00 and a Rockstar for $2.00. I put them all on the counter.

$ 1.00 + $ 1.00 + $2.00 + $2.00 = $6.00
I OWE $1.00
- $1.00
I'm not able to buy the candy because I don't have enough money. It's all because of (+1) + (+1) + (+2) + (+2) = (+6). Now I have to go home to get more money. As I walk home I find a looney on the side walk. Now I have $5.00. Then a bird swoops down and grabs it. now I have $4.00.

$1:00 (+1) + (-1)= 0

I hate zero pairs! I was almost at $6.00. As I walk home

    Hey Zach, Good story. However, its very short. You're suppose to have 4 paragraphs with 4 integer question. And i think, each paragraph is suppose to have about 5 sentences. Oh, and stick to the questions in green and the sentences in black or grey. Also stick to one "size font" in your sentences. And i got confused to what happen about the bird thing? did the bird take the money or something? And the zero pair question is $1.00 not 1:00. And yeah, that's it. Just make it longer.

    Hey zach you story was very short and you were saposed to have 4 paragraphas and a question for each. Like chnn2 said in your other commnt stick to one size of font and a colour for the words and question. Also if the bird had stolen the dollor you had found on the ground wouldent you still have 5 dollors left. because you pick up one wich makes it 6 then the bird takes one so you have 5.
