My Math Answer
In the video, the guy had a different way of doing division, and than proved his method by adding in a weird way. When he divided seven into twenty-eight, seven couldn't go into two but it did go into eight one time so he wrote down one and then placed the two in front of the one to make it twenty-one, and seven went into that three times, so the answer was thirteen. Then he checked his answer by writing thirteen seven times and adding each column of numbers and he put down the overall total which was twenty-eight. Another problem that I figured out is that four goes into thirty-six eighteen times. I just tried out different even numbers until one worked. The guy was wrong because he didn't carry his numbers to the other column when he was adding, and when he did the long division, he put that seven goes into eight once, instead of seven into twenty-eight.

Gian-Luc Jordan, we all miss you so much. Always in the hall, I always heard “hey look, its Gian-Luc.” Everyone in the hall turns and looks & what do you see? Gian-Luc with a big smile on his face. His smile always shined like the sun. I always saw him with his friends laughing, smiling, laughing, anything you could think of. His family dearly loved him. He had a big sister and little siblings. I thought Luca was pretty cool and super nice. He was one of my friends, even though I didn’t get to talk to him much. He had SO much energy around his friends. I always think of him and pray for his family. You were loved so much. I miss you so much Luca.
