#### Storyboard Text

• No...I'm just thinking about a question that Kakashi sen sen gave me
• So he gave me a math problem for me to do...Which I am terrible at math.﻿
• He said "Being only good at ninjutsu won't work in the society
• Oh Sausage..I mean Sasuke what are you doing here
• Oh really? So the question is 2(5x+7)+12x=4(5x+9), and so what is X?
• Oh! Math! I can probably help you with that, I am really good at math.
• Well, I guess that is the only thing that I can trust you with...Since you are good at math.﻿﻿
• Oh that's easy Sasuke, can't believe that you don't know how to do it! I'll teach you how.﻿﻿
• ﻿﻿By the way Kakashi sen sen taught me what combining like term and distributive property is so you don't have to teach me again.
• ﻿﻿The second step you would need to do is, combining like term, what you would need to do get the like terms from the one side to the other side, so you have the eliminate one side like term, but if there is one like term in one side, then you add or subtract.
• Oh ok good! ﻿SO the first step is,  do the ﻿ distributive property which is 2 times 5x and 2 times 7 which now equal to 10x+14+12x=20x+36
• Now you don't have two like terms in one side, so you will want to move the like terms to the other side, so subtract 14 by 14 because you want to eliminate 14 and the you do the same to 36 so now it is equal to 22x=20x+22
• So in that question there is two like terms in it so we have to add them which is 10x+12x which is 22x so it equal to 22x+14=20x+36 now﻿
• ﻿﻿OH that was easier than I thought! Not hard at all, thanks naruto!
• Then you would want to eliminate ﻿﻿20x, so you do 20x-20x and then do the same to 22 so it's now 2x=22
• Now the last step is simple just divide 22 by 2x which is 6 so X is equal to 11﻿
