Conditions of Use
What I saw was one man prepared 28 doughnuts for seven officers and he thought he could divide it so that each officer got 13. Witch was…wrong, for it to be right each officer would have to have four. At first he took away the two and put 7 into 8 with the remainder of 1, then put the two back making it 21, witch he was suppose to not take out the 2 and just put 7 into 28. He then divided 21 by 7 that equaled 3 making it 13.Another thing he did was try to add up 13 seven times but he didn’t carry the 2 and he just added the seven ones making it 28. This trick would also work with 25,14,and 5.

I write almost everyday, and would never give it up. My latest story so far that I'm working on is going to be called Wanderer, but it is not even close to being finished and once it is, i still will have to edit it. I have won a novel contest, which I am so excited about because then all i have to do is edit the novel, find an editor and get it published. I hope to grow up to be an author. I like homework and school, but I do not like the stress of it all, which i find kinda strange. I do not work well in groups, all my teachers and close friends know this fact quite well. My nickname in a Manga club that I joined, located at the East Pikes Peak library, is Silence which fits me pretty well.
