10 Marks
Objective: Given the questions below, you will answer them in full sentences.


Article A:
Which section did you and your roommate both have the most disagreement
about and why?

We disagreed on money because we thought we have made good cash. But we

needed to figure out how many we saved and lost.

Article B:

Which section did you and your roommate have the least disagreement about
and why?
Picking the bedrooms because we did not worry about our rooms too much. We just
wanted to sleep in alone with all of our stuff


What cost amount shocked the both of you the most when completing this
activity? Write your answer below:

The cost amount that shocked us was $13,314.65 for monthly expenses. We did not
expect this big of an amount with the combined salary.


The Fairness Clause:

To ensure that there is fairness in your Roommate Agreement, you need to
create 10 Rules and 1 Clause. A clause in contract law is a written contract
that declares that contract to be the complete and the final agreement
between the parties. If you are having trouble creating a cause, refer to
examples from the T.V. Show Big Bang Theory. Please attach these rules to
the back of this assignment labelled: The 10 Rules and 1 Clause

How has your idea of moving out changes after completing this activity? Two
Statements are required and needs to be attached to this assignment labelled:
