*second chapter, script :*

combining like terms;

*bella:*hey edward, can you help me with something?

i cant seem to figure out this math i have been working on.

*edward:*oh, hi. Bella. i haven't talk to you in a while.

im happy to help you with anything. so, whats the combining like terms question?

i learned about those already, so i think i can help you.

*bella:*well good then. hm, the question is, n+3-5n+12?

i was working on it for a long time last night. i came up with ..

-6n +15. am i right ?

*edward:*i believe you're wrong bella. let me see, there is two terms only right?

*bella:*i think so, "n" + 5 is one term 12 +3 is another term?

*edward:*you're right bella. good you have already combined them together.

now we just have to add the math signs. it should look like ..

n-5n+3+12. do you think you can try answering that one?

*bella:*ill try. let me see. n-5 = -4n and 3+12 = 15.

if you add then together you should get.. -4n+15.

*edward:*you're right bella.

*bella:*thanks edward, that helps a lot. you've been a big help.

you're the best, sadly its getting late, i should get going.

*edward:*my pleasure, im always here to help.

nice seeing you again, hope you'll come back sometime.

*bella:*dont worry ill come back soon. see you soon.
