**Texas Go Math Grade 8 Unit 4 Exercises Answer Key**

**Module 11 Equations and Inequalities with the Variable on Both Sides**

**Solve. (Lessons 11.1. 11.2, 11.3, 11.4)**

Question 1.

13 – 6y = 8y

Answer:

13 = 8y + 6y

14y = 13

y = 13/14

y = 0.9

Question 2.

\(\frac{1}{5}\)x + 5 = 19 – \(\frac{1}{2}\)x

Answer:

Determine the least common multiple of the denominators: LCM(5, 2) = 10.

Then, multiply both sides of the equation by the LCM to eliminate the fraction.

\(\frac{1}{5}\)x + 5 = 19 – \(\frac{1}{2}\)x

10(\(\frac{1}{5}\)x + 5) = 10(19 – \(\frac{1}{2}\)x)

2x + 50 = 190 – 5x

(Subtract 50 from both sides.) 2x = 140 – 5x

(Add 5x to both sides.) 7x = 140

(Divide both sides by 7) x = 20

x = 20

Question 3.

7.3t + 22 ≤ 2.1t – 22.2

Answer:

Multiply both sides of the equation by 10. Multiplying by 10 clears the equation of decimals

7.3t + 22 = 2.1t – 22.2

73t + 220 = 21t – 222

(Subtract 220 from each side) 73t = 21t – 442

(Subtract 21t from each side.) 52t = -442

(Divide by 52) y = -8.5

y = -8.5

Question 4.

7 – 45z < 5z + 13

Answer:

Given,

7 – 45z < 5z + 13

7 – 13 < 5z + 45z

-6 < 50z

50z > -6

z > -3/25

Question 5.

1.4 + \(\frac{2}{5}\)e ≥ \(\frac{3}{15}\)e – 0.8

Answer:

Determine the least common multiple of the denominators: LCM(5, 15) = 15.

Then, multiply both sides of the equation by the LCM to eliminate the fraction.

1.4 + \(\frac{2}{5}\)e ≥ \(\frac{3}{15}\)e – 0.8

15(1.4 + \(\frac{2}{5}\)e) = 15(\(\frac{3}{15}\)e – 0.8)

21 + 6e = 3e – 12

(Subtract 3e from both sides.) 21 + 3e = – 12

(Subtract 21 from both sides.) 3e = -33

(Divide both sides by 3) e = -11

e = 11

Question 6.

0.75x – 6.5 = -0.5 – 0.25x

Answer:

Given,

0.75x – 6.5 = -0.5 – 0.25x

0.75x + 0.25x = -0.5 + 6.5

x = 6

So, the value of x is 6.

Question 7.

Write a real-world situation that could be modeled by the equation 650 + 10m = 60m + 400. (Lesson 11.1)

Answer:

A handyman charges 650 dollars plus 10 dollars per hour for house painting. A painter charges 400 dollars plus 60 dollars per hour. How many hours would a job have to take for the handyman’s fee and the painter’s fee to be the same?

Question 8.

Answer:

45 + 5.50f = 195 + 4.25f

**Texas Go Math Grade 8 Unit 4 Performance Tasks Answer Key**

Question 1.

**CARRERS IN MATH** Hydraulic Engineer A hydraulic engineer is studying the pressure in a particular fluid. The pressure is equal to the atmospheric pressure 101 kN/m plus 8 kN/m for every meter below the surface, where kN/m is kilonewtons per meter, a unit of pressure.

a. Write an expression for the pressure at a depth of d, meters below the liquid surface.

Answer:

where P is the pressure at d_{1} below the surface

P = 8d_{1} + 101

b. Write and solve an equation to find the depth at which the pressure is 200 kN/m.

Answer:

When P = 200 kN/m

200 = 8d_{1} + 101

Subtract 101 from both sides

200 – 101 = 8d_{1} + 101 – 101

8d_{1} = 99

Divide both sides by 8

d_{1} = 12.375

c. The hydraulic engineer alters the density of the fluid so that the pressure at depth d_{2} below the surface is atmospheric pressure 101 kN/m plus 9 kN/m for every meter below the surface. Write an expression for the pressure at depth d_{2}.

Answer:

where P is the pressure at d_{2} below the surface

P = 9d_{2} + 101

d. If the pressure at depth d_{1} in the first fluid is equal to the pressure at depth d_{2} in the second fluid, what is the relationship between d_{1} and d_{2}? Explain how you found your answer.

Answer:

When pressure are equal the equations from a and c should be set equal

8d_{1} + 101 = 9d_{2} + 101

Subtract 101 from both sides

8d_{1} + 101 – 101 = 9d_{2} + 101 – 101

8d_{1} = 9d_{2}

Divide both sides by 8

d_{1} = \(\frac{9}{8}\) d_{2}

**Selected Response**

Question 1.

Ricardo and John start swimming from the same location. Ricardo starts 15 seconds before John and swims at a rate of 3 feet per second. John swims at a rate of 4 feet per second in the same direction as Ricardo. Which equation could you solve to find how long it will take John to catch up with Ricardo?

(A) 4t + 3 = 3t

(B) 4t + 60 = 3t

(C) 3t + 3 = 4t

(D) 3t + 45 = 4t

Answer:

(D) 3t + 45 = 4t

Explanation:

If v shows at which rate Ricardo and John swims, d is distance between two locations and t is their time, then we use formula for speed:

v = \(\frac{d}{t}\)

t ∙ (v) = t ∙ (\(\frac{d}{t}\)) (Multiply both sides by t)

t ∙ (v) = d

John swims at a rate of 4 feet per second

d_{1} = 4t (for v = 4 ft/s)

Ricardo swims 15 seconds more than John and swims at a rate of 3 feet per second.

d_{2} = 3(15 + t) = 45 + 3t

d_{1} = d_{2} (for v = 3 ft/s and his time is t + 15)

4t = 45 + 3t

The correct answer is D.

Question 2.

Gina and Rhonda work for different real estate agencies. Gina earns a monthly salary of $5,000 plus a 6% commission on her sales. Rhonda earns a monthly salary of $6,500 plus a 4% commission on her sales. How much must each sell to earn the same amount in a month?

(A) $1,500

(B) $15,000

(C) $75,000

(D) $750,000

Answer:

(C) $75,000

Explanation:

We write an expression representing the monthly earnings of Gina. Let’s denote the number of sales by s.

5000 + 0.06s

We write an expression representing the monthly earnings of Rhonda. Let’s denote the number of sales by s.

6500 + 0.04s

We write an equation that can be solved to find how much must each sell to earn the same amount in a month.

5000 + 0.06s = 6500 + 0.04s

100 ∙ (5000 + 0.06s) = (6500 + 0.04s) ∙ 100

500000 + 6s = 650000 + 4s

500000 + 6s – 4s = 650000 + 4s – 4s

500000 + 2s = 650000

500000 + 2s – 500000 = 650000 – 500000

2s = 150000

s = \(\frac{150000}{2}\)

s = 75000

Each of them should sell $75000 to earn the same amount in a month.

Question 3.

Which is the measure of ∠BAC in the triangle below?

(A) 51°

(B) 61°

(C) 68°

(D) 71°

Answer:

∠ACD = 129°

Sum of angles = 180°

∠BAC = 180° – 129°

∠BAC = 51°

Thus the correct answer is option A.

Question 4.

A movie theater has two membership plans. Under Plan A you pay $6 a month plus $4 for each ticket you buy. Under Plan B you pay $18 a month plus $2 for each ticket you buy. Which inequality represents the situation when Plan B becomes less expensive than Plan A?

(A) x > 2

(B) x< 2

(C) x > 6

(D) x < 6

Answer:

Plan A you pay per month = $6 + $4 for each ticket.

Plan B you pay per month = $18 + $2 for each ticket.

$18 + $2x < $6 + $4x

$18 -$6 < $4x – $2x

$12 < $2x

x < $12/$2

x < 6

Option B is the correct answer.

Question 5.

Which inequality represents the solution to 1.75x + 3.5 > 3.25x – 8.5?

(A) x > 8

(B) x < 8

(C) x > 3.3

(D) x < 3.3

Answer:

1.75x + 3.5 > 3.25x – 8.5

3.5 + 8.5 > 3.25x – 1.75x

12 > 1.5x

x < 12/1.5

x < 8

Thus the correct answer is option B.

Question 6.

The triangle and the rectangle have the same perimeter.

Find the value of x.

(A) 2

(B) 10

(C) 18

(D) 24

Answer:

(A) 2

Explanation:

The perimeter of the rectangle is

P_{r} = 2l + 2w

P_{r} = 2(x + 7) + 2(2x – 1)

P_{r} = 2r + 14 + 4x – 2

P_{r} = 6x+ 12

The perimeter of the triangle is

P_{t} = a + b + c

P_{t} = (x + 5) + (x + 6) + (x + 7)

P_{t} = x + 5 + x + 6 + x + 7

P_{t} = 3x + 18

The perimeter of the rectangle is equal to the perimeter of the triangle, therefore we solve for x

P_{r} = P_{t}

6x + 12 = 3x + 18

6x + 12 – 3x = 3x + 18 – 3x

3x + 12 = 18

3x = 6

x = \(\frac{6}{3}\)

x = 2

Question 7.

What is the slope of the line?

(A) -3

(B) –\(\frac{1}{3}\)

(C) \(\frac{1}{3}\)

(D) 3

Answer:

(C) \(\frac{1}{3}\)

Explanation:

In general, the slope of a Line is the ratio of the change in y-vaLues for a segment of the graph to the

corresponding change in x-values.

slope = \(\frac{y_{2}-y_{1}}{x_{2}-x_{1}}\)

Choosing the points (1, 0) and (4, 1) on the given Line, we substitute the x- and y- values in equation (1).

slope = \(\frac{1-0}{4-1}=\frac{1}{3}\)

slope = \(\frac{1}{3}\)

Question 8.

(A) between 24 and 25 millimeters

(B) between 76 and 77 millimeters

(C) between 242 and 243 millimeters

(D) between 766 and 767 millimeters

Answer: (C) between 242 and 243 millimeters

Explanation:

A square wall tile has an area of 58,800 square millimeters.

Area of a square = s . s

A = 58,800

s = √58800

Perfect square close to 58800 is 58564 < 58800 < 59049

= 242 <√58800 < 243

The correct answer is option C.

Question 10.

Two cars are traveling in the same direction. The first car is going 45 mi/h and the second car is going 60 mi/h. The first car left 2 hours before the second car. How many hours will it take for the second car to travel the same distance as the first car?

Answer:

Given that,

The first car is going per mi/h = 45.

The second car is going per mi/h = 60.

The first car left 2 hours before the second car.

The equation is

45(t + 2) = 60 × t

45t + 90 = 60 × t

45t + 90/t = 60

45 + 90/t = 60

90/t = 15

90 = 15t

t = 90/15

t = 6.

The second car takes 6 hours to travel the same distance as the first car.

Question 11.

Mickey is ordering some clothes online. One website charges $1.25 per pound for shipping. The other website charges $0.75 per pound for shipping plus a $2 handling fee. How many pounds of clothing would Mickey need to order for the shipping costs to be the same?

Answer:

One website charges for shipping = $1.25 per pound.

Other websites charge for shipping = $0.75 per pound + $2 handling fee.

$1.25x = $0.75x + $2.

$1.25x – $0.75x = $2

$0.5x = $2

x = 2/0.5

x = 4 pounds.

Mickey needs 4 pounds to order for the shipping costs to be the same.
