### Translate Into Equations

Standard 3A

Steps for Problem Solving
• Familiarize yourself with the problem situation.
• Translate the problem to an expression.
• Solve the expression.
• Check the answer in the original problem.
• State the answer to the problem clearly.

We are going to familiarize ourselves with the problem and translate the word problem into an expression

Josh wants to buy a bicycle priced at \$127.95, but Josh only has \$86.42. How much more money does Josh need to be able to buy the bicycle?

Bernice swam 1,750 m yesterday at the school\'s swimming pool. One lap at the pool is 350 m. Bernice wants to swim 2,800 m today. How many laps around the pool should Bernice swim today?

Which equation represents the following statement?

7 times a number is 49

• 7 × n = 49
• 7 × n = 49 × n
• 49 × n = 7
• 49 × n = 343
Which Equation Do I Use?

Hallie spent \$63.50 on pet supplies at the pet store. Then, on her way home, she filled up her car with gasoline.

If Hallie spent a total of \$91.34 on pet supplies and gasoline, which of the following equations would describe g, the amount Hallie spent on gasoline?

• \$63.50 ÷ g = \$91.34
• \$63.50 × g = \$91.34
• \$63.50 + g = \$91.34
• \$63.50 - g = \$91.34
