My favorite thing about our math class is Mrs. Ruelbach. I used to loathe math until now. She makes it fun and challenging at the same time.

**22 The Slug Wizard War**

**By Emma McGeough**

** **

** It was a stormy night when the fight started. “I’LL TURN YOU INTO A VARIABLE! THEN I CAN CHANGE YOU INTO WHATEVER I WANT TO!” screamed Elle. Two lazy mathmation-slug-wizards were fighting over who was better. “OH YEAH! I’LLSUBSTITUTEYOU WITH A FROG!” yelled Jhonson.“WELL, MY POWER IS EXPODENTIALY GROWING! I NOW HAVE THE FORCE OF 10 TO THE 100TH POWER!” Elle forcefully exclaimed.”OH YEAH!WELL, 2+ty-9(6+p(4-p))!” Jhonson randomly screamed. “What?” Elle said with confusion. “OMG Elle! ITS AN EXPRESSION!YOU BAG OF CHEETOS!” “ No, ITS AN EQUATION!YOU CORN DOG!” Elle said with an uncertain look. “WRONG!” “WELL,9.7*10 to the 19 power!” Elle proudly exclaimed. “STOP SPEAKIN’ JIBBER-JABBER!” “It’s not jibber-jabber, ITS SCIENTIFIC NOTATION! YOU POTATO!” Laughed Elle.”I’M GOING TO SIMPLIYFY YOU!” Jhonson threat.”BUT ALAS! YOU ARE ONLY A TERM! NONSENSE! I AM A LIKE TERM!” Wined Elle.”I HOPE YOU ROT IN A TRASH BIN!” Jhonson added.”OOOOOOHHHH!WELL, I HOPE YOU STEP ON A LEGO, IN THE DARK!” Then Jhonson steped on a lego in the dark and died.**

SIMPLIFYING ALGEBRAIC EQUATIONS-

1) find the terms with the same variables in them

2) change the equation so the terms with the same variables are first

3) solve/simplify

EX-2x-3+4+2x= 4x-1
