POEM

Free verse-rules of mutiplying Integers
Sally oh Sally, this shy one
has never multiplyed an Integer
not even one.
she asked me if i knew how to do it,
i said yes dear lets get to it.
but Sally was a hopless one,
she dident want to learn, she just wanted to have fun.
But just when i thought there was no hope and was going to cry,
I decided to glimps upon the sky.
And in a split second i got a theory,
i will teach her about pratts law, so dearly!
So i told Sally if you add a negative amout of integers
that her product would be negative,
and that if she added a positive amount of integers her product
would be positive.
Oh yes Oh yes there was some hope,
I gave Sally a pen and paper and she did not mope!

negative integer and a
positive integer your
is a negative

Free verse-subtracting integers
Subtracting integers is oh so simple honey,

I love your first free verse; but for Pratts Law you have that if you have a positive amount of integers it will be positive and if you have a negative amount of negative integers you will get a negative. It should be that if you have an EVEN amount of negative integers you will get a positive integer and if you have an ODD amount of negative integers you will get a negative integer.

Positive---EVEN
Negative---ODD

Hey Genia , I really liked your choice of colours. But then dont you think your font is to big. And i also agree with what Rayna said . Positive is even and Negative is odd.
