Chapter 2
Script :
1 person  hey , how's it going ?
2 person  it's going fine , how about you ?
1 person  it's going okaay .
2 person  do you know how to combine like terms , and distributive property ?
1 person  yes i do .
1 person  for example this question n+35n+12 is equals to 4n+15 .
2 person  NO , you are wrong ! the answer is 6n + 15 .
1 person  no , it couldnt be . the quetion says n+35n+12 . the question says you owe 5n and you have n . which mean your answer would be 4n +15 . and you always add the opposite .
2 person  oh , really . i thought you were supossed to make the minus to a plus and leave the question as it is .
1 person  NO , you turn the minus into a plus . and you add the opposite .
2 person  Oh , thanks for the help.

1 person  well now that you know how to add the opposite , let see if you can do this second problem .
1 person  for example , 2 + 4(3n+8) .
2 person  Uhm , i think i know the answer .
1 person  Go ahead , answer the question .
2 person  Okay , i think the answer is ... 12n + 10 .
1 person  You were almost right , all you forgot is you dont add all of them together .
you combine your like terms , you put them into the same basket and you add them together.
so your answer should have been 14 + 3n
