Math 10 week 3

Something that I learned this week that was combining exponent laws so combining power to a power, multiplication law, division law, and zero exponent law. With all these combined you can do equations that look extremely difficult but with these makes the equations really easy. Example: With that example you can see how much the laws make the question much more simple even with harder looking question.

In the book If I Grow Up By Todd Strasser. I learned that some people don’t live a good life with a proper home and barely enough money to own a TV because of the choices that either they made or their parents made. In this book two gangs that live in a place called the projects, are against each other and they despise each other. They also sometimes kill one another. Both gangs sell drugs and have guns but they didn’t know there supplier was the same person. The main character DeShawn liked and dated the sister of the other gangs leader. Basically the book is talking about how people from the projects live and it’s pretty brutal.
