KEY CONCEPT
Algebraic expressions can be used to represent problems with unknown or variable values. Values can be substituted for variables to evaluate the expression.

Do You Understand?
Question 1.
Essential Question How are algebraic expressions used to represent and solve problems?

Answer:
Algebraic expressions are used to represent problems with unknowns or variable values.

Explanation:
In the above-given question,
given that,
Algebraic expressions are used to represent problems with unknowns or variable values.
Values can be substituted for variables to evaluate the expression.
for example:
2x + 3y = a.

Answer:
a = 13.

Explanation:
In the above-given question,
given that,
2x + 3y = a.
where x = 2 and y = 3.
2 x 2 + 3 x 3 = a.
4 + 9 = a.
13 = a.

Question 3.

Higher Order Thinking in the expression ax + bx, a is a decimal and b is a fraction. How do you decide whether to write a as a fraction or b as a decimal?

Answer:
Yes, we can write an as a fraction and b as a decimal.

Explanation:
In the above-given question,
given that,
in the expression ax + bx, a is a decimal and b is a fraction.
for example:
a = 1.1.
b = 1/2.
ax + bx.
1.1x + 1/2x.
so 1.1 is a decimal and 1/2 is a fraction.

Question 20.
Select all expressions equivalent to -6z + (-5.5) + 3.5z + 5y – 2.5.
☐ -8 + 5y + 2.52
☐ -2.5z + 5y – 8
☐ -8 + 5y +(-2.5z)

Look for Relationships
What is the relationship between the areas of the gym and weight room?

Answer:
The relationship between the areas of the gym and weight room = 550 ft.

Explanation:
In the above-given question,
given that,
The school is planning to add a weight room to the gym.
If the total area of the gym and weight room should stay under 5,500 square feet.
the area of the school is l x b.
where l = 90 ft and b = 55 ft.
area = l x b.
area = 90 x 55.
area = 4950.
5500 – 4950 = 550.
so the relationship between the areas of the gym and weight room = 550 ft.

Answer:
The relationship between the areas of the gym and weight room = 550 ft.

Explanation:
In the above-given question,
given that,
The school is planning to add a weight room to the gym.
If the total area of the gym and weight room should stay under 5,500 square feet.

given that,
the expression is 240 – 400x.
-160x.
-160(60).
-9600.
so the dimensions of the sports field = -160 and 60.

Question 13.
Your friend incorrectly factors the expression 15x – 20xy as 5x( 3 – 4xy).
a. Factor the expression correctly.

Answer:
The expression correctly = 5(3x – 4xy).

Explanation:
In the above-given question,
given that,
the expression is 15x – 20xy.
5(3x – 4xy).
5 x 3x = 15x.
5 x 4xy = 20xy.
so the expression correctly is 5(3x – 4xy).

b. What error did your friend likely make?

Answer:
The expression correctly = 5(3x – 4xy).

Explanation:
In the above-given question,
given that,
the expression is 15x – 20xy.
5(3x – 4xy).
5 x 3x = 15x.
5 x 4xy = 20xy.

Answer:
The expression is 2(6x + 9y + 18).

Explanation:
In the above-given question,
given that,
the expression is 12x + 18y + 26.
2(6x + 9y + 13).
2 x 6x = 12x.
2 x 9y = 18y.
2 x 13 = 26.

Question 15.

Envision Math Common Core 7th Grade Answers Topic 4 Generate Equivalent Expressions 37

Answer:
The perimeter of the pool = 2XxX + 3x.

Explanation:
In the above-given question,
given that,
Let x represent the width of the pool, in feet.

2y + 2x + 4
–\(\frac{3}{4}\)m + 8m + m
4 – 3p
5.75t + 7.75t – t
8xy – 6xy
a. Circle the expressions that have like terms.

Answer:
The expressions that have the like terms = 14m + mn, 5.75t + 7.75t -t, and 8xy – 6xy.

Topic 4 Mid-Topic Performance Task

Alison is a buyer for a chain of 6 flower shops. This means that she buys flowers in bulk from a supplier and then distributes them to the 6 flower shops in the chain.
PART A
This week Alison bought 108 bunches of carnations and 96 bunches of roses from the supplier. Let c represent the number of carnations in each bunch, and let r represent the number of roses in each bunch. Write an expression to show the total number of carnations and roses that Alison bought.

Answer:
The total number of carnations and roses that Alison bought = 12(9c + 8r).

Explanation:
In the above-given question,
given that,
This week Alison bought 108 bunches of carnations and 96 bunches of roses from the supplier.
Let c represent the number of carnations in each bunch, and let r represent the number of roses in each bunch.
108c + 96r.
12(9c + 8r).
12 x 9c = 108c.
12 x 8r = 96r.

PART B
Alison wants to distribute the carnations and roses equally among the 6 flower shops. Factor the expression from Part A using 6 as the common factor. How does the factored expression help Alison determine how many carnations and how many roses each flower shop should get?

Answer:
The common factor is 3(c + r).

Explanation:
In the above-given question,
given that,
Alison wants to distribute the carnations and roses equally among the 6 flower shops.
3c + 3r.
3(c + r).
1(3c + 3r).
so the common factor is 3(c + r).

PART C
There are 24 carnations in each bunch and 12 roses in each bunch. Use your answer to Part B to determine the total number of carnations and the total number of roses Alison will distribute to each flower shop this week.

Answer:
The total number of carnations and roses = 6(4c + 2r).

Explanation:
In the above-given question,
given that,
There are 24 carnations in each bunch and 12 roses in each bunch.
24 c + 12 r.
2(12c + 6r).
6(4c + 2r).
6 x 4c = 24c.
6 x 2r = 12r.

PART D
Jake manages one of the flower shops. He wants to use the carnations and roses to make bouquets. He wants each bouquet to have the same combination of carnations and roses, with no flowers left over. Determine a way that Jake can divide the flowers to make the bouquets. How many bouquets will there be?

Answer:
The number of bouquets will there be = 6(c + r).

Explanation:
In the above-given question,
given that,
Jake manages one of the flower shops.
He wants to use the carnations and roses to make bouquets.
He wants each bouquet to have the same combination of carnations and roses, with no flowers left over.
6 and 6.
6 x 6 = 36.
6c + 6r.
6(c + r).
so the number of bouquets will there be = 6(c + 1).

KEY CONCEPT
To subtract expressions, you can use properties of operations.
Write the subtraction as addition and use the Distributive Property to multiply – 1 to the terms in the expression being subtracted.
5 – (2x – 7)
= 5 – (-2x – 7)
= 5 +(-1)(-2x – 7)
= 5+ (-1)(-2)x + (-1)(-7)
= 5 + 2x + 7
You can use the Distributive Property to distribute the minus sign to the second expression, which changes the signs of the terms.
5 – (-2x – 7)
= 5 + 2x + 7

Do You Understand?

Lesson 4.1 Write and Evaluate Algebraic Expressions

Quick Review
You can use an algebraic expression to represent and solve a problem with unknown values. The expression can consist of coefficients, constants, and variables. You can substitute values for variables to evaluate expressions.

Example
A farm charges $1.75 for each pound of strawberries picked and $2 for a basket to hold the strawberries. What is the total cost to pick 5 pounds of strawberries?

Answer:
The total cost to pick 5 pounds of strawberries = $10.75.

Explanation:
In the above-given question,
given that,
A farm charges $1.75 for each pound of strawberries picked and $2 for a basket to hold the strawberries.
($1.75 x $5) + 2.
($8.75) + 2.
$10.75.

Write an expression to represent the total cost in dollars to pick p pounds of strawberries.
1.75p + 2
Substitute 5 for p.
1.75(5) + 2 = 8.75 + 2 = 10.75
It costs $10.75 to pick 5 pounds of strawberries.

Lesson 4.5 Factor Expressions

Quick Review
When you factor an expression, you write it as a product of two expressions. The new expression is equivalent to the original expression. The greatest common factor (GCF) and the Distributive Property are tools that you use when you need to factor an expression.

Example
Factor the expression 12x – 9y + 15.
The GCF of 12x, 15, and -9y is 3.
Rewrite each term using 3 as a factor.
12x = 3 • 4x
-9y = 3 • (-3y)
15= 3 • 5
Use the Distributive Property to factor the expression.
3(4x – 3y + 5)
