**Texas Go Math Grade 7 Unit 1 Performance Task Answer Key**

Question 1.

**CAREERS IN MATH** Urban Planner Armand is an urban planner, and he has proposed a site for a new town library. The site is between City Hall and the post office on Main Street.

The distance between City Hall and the post office is 6\(\frac{1}{2}\) miles. The library site is 1\(\frac{1}{4}\) miles closer to City Hall than it is to the post office.

a. Write 6\(\frac{1}{2}\) miles and 1\(\frac{1}{4}\) miles as decimals.

Answer:

First, write \(\frac{1}{2}\) and \(\frac{1}{4}\) as decimals.

Then, add 6 and 1 to the result respectively.

6\(\frac{1}{2}\) = 6 + 0.5 = 6.5 miles

1\(\frac{1}{4}\) = 1 + 0.25 = 1.25 miles

b. Let d represent the distance from City Hall to the library site. Write an expression for the distance from the library site to the post office.

Answer:

d* = distance from Library site to the Post Office

d* = d + 1.25

c. Write an equation that represents the following statement: The distance from City Hall to the library site plus the distance from the library site to the post office is equal to the distance from City Hall to the post office.

Answer:

d + d* = 6.5

d. Solve your equation from part c to determine the distance from City Hall to the library site, and the distance from the post office to the library site.

Answer:

d + d* = 6.5

d + d + 1.25 = 6.5

2d = 5.25

d = 2.625

d* = d + 1.25

d* = 2.625 + 1.25

d* = 3.875

Question 2.

Sumaya is reading a book with 240 pages. She has already read 90 pages. She plans to read 20 more pages each day until she finishes the book.

a. Sumaya writes the equation 330 = -20d to find the number of days she will need to finish the book. Identify the errors that Sumaya made.

Answer:

First, Sumaya added 90 to 240 instead of subtracting 90 from 240. This is a mistake because if she read 90 pages, that means she has 90 pages Less to read, not more.

Second mistake is the negative sign. If the equation results in how many days more she has to read, it can not be negative.

b. Write and solve an equation to determine how many days Sumaya will need to finish the book. In your answer, count part of a day as a full day.

Answer:

First, find out how many more pages she has to read:

240 – 90 = 150

Correct equation:

20d = 150

d = \(\frac{150}{20}\)

d = \(\frac{15}{2}\)

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

Sumaya will need 8 days to finish the book.

c. Estimate how many days you would need to read a book about the same length as Sumaya’s book. What information did you use to find the estimate?

Answer:

Let the book have the same number of pages. I would, for example, read 10 pages a day.

10d = 330

d = 33

It would take me 33 days to read the book.

Question 3.

Jackson works as a veterinary technician and earns $12.20 per hour.

a. Jackson normally works 40 hours a week. In a normal week, what is his total pay before taxes and other deductions?

Answer:

Find 40 × 12.20:

40 × 12.20 = 488

His total pay is $488.

b. Last week, Jackson was ill and missed some work. His total pay before deductions was $372.10. Write and solve an equation to find the number of hours Jackson worked.

Answer:

Find 372.10 ÷ 12.20

372.10 ÷ 12.20 = 30.5

Jackson worked 30.5 hours last week.

c. Jackson records his hours each day on a time sheet. Last week when he was ill, his time sheet was incomplete. How many hours are missing? Show your work.

Answer:

Find 40 – 30.5

40 – 30.5 = 9.5

Jackson missed 9.5 hours last week.

d. When Jackson works more than 40 hours in a week, he earns 1.5 times his normal hourly rate for each of the extra hours. Jackson worked 43 hours one week. What was his total pay before deductions? Justify your answer.

Answer:

His 40 hours pay is 488, as calculated iii a. He worked 43 – 40 = 3 hours overtime.

Find 3 × 12.20 × 1.5:

3 × 12.20 × 1.5 = 36.6 × 1.5

= 54.9

Now add 54.9 to his 10 hours pay.

Find 488 + 54.9:

488 + 54.9 = 5-12.9

Jackson’s pay that week was $542.9.

e. What is a reasonable range for Jackson’s expected yearly pay before deductions? Describe any assumptions you made in finding your answer.

Answer:

Let’s say that Jackson will be sick couple of days in a year, and he will work overtime couple of days in a year. When it all adds up, assumption is he will work 40 hours a week on average. There are 52 weeks in a year.

Find 488 × 52:

488 × 52 = 25376

Jackson will probably earn somewhere in between $25000 – $26000.

Question 1.

What is -6\(\frac{9}{16}\) written as a decimal?

A. -6.625

B. -6.5625

C. -6.4375

D. -6.125

Answer:

B. -6.5625

First, write \(\frac{9}{16}\) as a decimal.

Then, add 6 to the result.

6 + 0.5625 = 6.5625

Now, since the starting number was negative, this one has to be negative too.

-6\(\frac{9}{16}\) = -6.5625

Question 2.

Working together, 6 friends pick 14\(\frac{2}{5}\) pounds of pecans at a pecan farm. They divide the pecans equally among themselves. How many pounds does each friend get?

A. 20\(\frac{2}{5}\) pounds

B. 8\(\frac{2}{5}\) pounds

C. 4\(\frac{3}{5}\) pounds

D. 2\(\frac{2}{5}\) pounds

Answer:

D. 2\(\frac{2}{5}\) pounds

Start with dividing 14\(\frac{2}{5}\) by 6:

14\(\frac{2}{5}\) ÷ 6

Write mixed fraction as proper fraction:

\(\frac{72}{5}\) ÷ 6

Write using multiplication:

\(\frac{72}{5}\) × \(\frac{1}{6}\) = \(\frac{12}{5}\)

= 2\(\frac{2}{5}\)

Each friend gets 2\(\frac{2}{5}\) pounds.

Question 3.

What is the value of (-3.25)(-1.56)?

A. -5.85

B. -5.07

C. 5.07

D. 5.85

Answer:

The product will, be positive, because both factors are negative:

= 3.25(1.56)

= 5.07

Question 4.

Ruby ate \(\frac{1}{3}\) of a pizza, and Angie ate \(\frac{1}{5}\) of the pizza. How much of the pizza did they eat in all?

A. \(\frac{1}{15}\) of the pizza

B. \(\frac{1}{8}\) of the pizza

C. \(\frac{3}{8}\) of the pizza

D. \(\frac{8}{15}\) of the pizza

Answer:

D. \(\frac{8}{15}\) of the pizza

We have to add how much Ruby ate, and how much Angie ate

\(\frac{1}{3}\) + \(\frac{1}{5}\) = \(\frac{5+3}{15}\)

= \(\frac{8}{15}\)

Ruby and Angie ate \(\frac{8}{15}\) of the pizza.

Question 5.

Jaime had $37 in his bank account on Sunday. The table shows his account activity for the next four days. What was the balance in Jaime’s account after his deposit on Thursday?

A. $57.49

B. $59.65

Use positive numbers to represent deposit. and negative numbers to represent withdrawal. Then, add it up to accounts balance before any deposits or withdrawals. 37.

37 + 17.42 – 12.60 – 9.62 + 62.29 = 54.42 – 12.60 – 9.62 + 62.29

= 41.82 – 9.62 + 62.29

= 32.2 + 62.29

= 94.49

The balance in Jaimes’s account on Friday was $94.49.

Erik offers $2700.

Question 7.

To which set or sets does the number -18 belong?

A. integers only

B. rational numbers only

C. integers and rational numbers only

D. whole numbers, integers, and rational numbers

Answer:

C. integers and rational numbers only

We can see that -18 does not belong in the set of whole numbers

Next, notice that -18 belongs to the set of integers. That implies it belongs in the set of rational numbers, since the set of integers is the subset of the set of rational numbers.

Question 8.

Mrs. Rodriguez is going to use 6\(\frac{1}{3}\) yards of material to make two dresses. The larger dress requires 3\(\frac{2}{3}\) yards of material. How much material will Mrs. Rodriguez have left to use on the smaller dress?

A. 1\(\frac{2}{3}\) yards

C. 2\(\frac{2}{3}\) yards

D. 3\(\frac{1}{3}\) yards

Answer:

C. 2\(\frac{2}{3}\) yards

Start by subtracting 3\(\frac{2}{3}\) = \(\frac{11}{3}\) from 6\(\frac{1}{3}\) = \(\frac{19}{3}\)

\(\frac{19}{3}\) – \(\frac{11}{3}\) = \(\frac{8}{3}\)

= 2\(\frac{2}{3}\)

Mrs. Rodriguez will have 2\(\frac{2}{3}\) yards of material to use on the smaller dress.

Victor is ordering pizzas for a party. He would like to have \(\frac{1}{4}\) of a pizza for each guest. He can only order whole pizzas, not part of a pizza. If he expects 27 guests, how many pizzas should he order?

Answer:

Portion of pizza for each guest = \(\frac{1}{4}\)

Total number of guest in party = 27

Number of guest in 1 pizza = \(\frac{1}{\frac{1}{4}}\) = 4

Required pizza for party = \(\frac{27}{4}\) = 6.75
