Type below:

_____________

Answer: p + 2 \(\frac{1}{2}\) = 5

Explanation:

\(p+2 \frac{1}{2}=5\)

p + 2 \(\frac{1}{2}\) = 5

p = 5 – 2 \(\frac{1}{2}\)

p = 2 \(\frac{1}{2}\)

\(p-2 \frac{1}{2}=5\)

p – 2 \(\frac{1}{2}\) = 5

p = 5 + 2 \(\frac{1}{2}\)

p = 7 \(\frac{1}{2}\)

\(2+p=2 \frac{1}{2}\)

2 + p = 2 \(\frac{1}{2}\)

p = 2 \(\frac{1}{2}\) – 2

p = \(\frac{1}{2}\)

4 – p = 2 \(\frac{1}{2}\)

p = 4 – 2 \(\frac{1}{2}\)

### Make Generalizations – Page No. 474

The reading skill make generalizations can help you write inequalities to represent situations. A generalization is a statement that is true about a group of facts.

Sea otters spend almost their entire lives in the ocean. Their thick fur helps them to stay warm in cold water. Sea otters often float together in groups called rafts. A team of biologists weighed the female sea otters in one raft off the coast of Alaska. The chart shows their results.

Question 8.

Write two inequalities that represent generalizations about the sea otter weights.

Type below:

_____________

Answer:

First, list the weights in pounds in order from least to greatest.

50, 51, 54, 58, 61, 61, 62, 62, 66, 68, 69, 71

Next, write an inequality to describe the weights by using the least weight on the list. Let w represent weights of the otters in the pounds.

The least weight is 50 pounds, so all of the weights are greater than or equal to 50 pounds.

w ≥ 50

Now write an inequality to describe the weights by using the greatest weights in the list.

The greatest weight is 71 pounds, so all of the weights are less than or equal to 71 pounds.

w ≤ 71

Question 9.

Next, write an inequality to describe the number of pups by using the least number of pups on the list. Let n represent the number of pups.

The least weight is 6 pups. So all of the pups will be greater than or equal to 6.

n ≥ 6

Now write an inequality to describe the number of pups by using the greatest weights in the list.

The greatest weight is 23 pups so all of the weights are less than or equal to 23 pups.

n ≤ 23 pups

k = ^{–}2

k ≤ ^{–}2

-2 ≤ ^{–}2

Thus -2 is the solution.

k = ^{–}4

k ≤ ^{–}2

-4 ≤ ^{–}2

Thus -4 is the solution.

k = 1

1 ≤ ^{–}2

1 ≤ ^{–}2

1 is greater than but not equal to -2

Thus 1 is not the solution.

k = ^{–}1 \(\frac{1}{2}\)

^{–}1 \(\frac{1}{2}\) ≤ ^{–}2

^{–}1 \(\frac{1}{2}\) ≤ ^{–}2

^{–}1 \(\frac{1}{2}\) is less than but not equal to -2

Thus ^{–}1 \(\frac{1}{2}\) is not the solution.

The distance from third base to home plate is 88.9 feet.

Romeo was 22.1 feet away from third base when he was tagged out.

The equation is 88.9 − t = 22.1

88.9 − t = 22.1

88.9 – 22.1 = t

t = 66.8 feet

Thus Using substitution, the coach determines that Romeo needed to run 66.8 feet to get to the home plate.

Question 6.

Ryan solved the equation 10 + y = 17 by drawing a model. Use numbers and words to explain how Ryan’s model can be used to find the solution

Type below:

_____________

Answer: y = 7

Explanation:

- Draw 11 rectangles on your MathBoard to represent the two sides of the equation.
- Use algebra tiles to model the equation. Model y + 10 in the left rectangle, and model 17 in the right rectangle.
- To solve the equation, get the y tile by itself on one side. If you remove a tile from one side, you can keep the two sides equal by removing the same type of tile from the other side.
- Remove ten 1 tiles on the left side and ten 1 tiles on the right side.
- The remaining titles will be seven 1 tiles on the right sides.

Thus 10 + y = 17

y = 17 – 10 = 7

y = 7

Question 8.

Select the equations that have the solution m = 17. Mark all that apply.

Options:

a. 3 + m = 21

b. m − 2 = 15

c. 14 = m − 3

d. 2 = m − 15

Answer: B, C, D

Explanation:

a. 3 + m = 21

3 + 17 = 21

20 ≠ 21

b. m − 2 = 15

17 – 2 = 15

15 = 15

c. 14 = m − 3

14 = 17 – 3

14 = 14

d. 2 = m − 15

2 = 17 – 15

2 = 2

Thus the correct answers are B, C and D.
