**Vocabulary**To evaluatean expression is to find its value. To evaluate an algebraic expression, substitute numbers for the variables in the expression and then simplify the expression.**Example 3: Evaluating Algebraic Expressions**Evaluate each expression for a = 4, b =7, and c = 2. A. b – c 7 – 2 Substitute 7 for b and 2 for c. = 5 Simplify. B. ac Substitute 4 for a and 2 for c. 4 ·2 = 8 Simplify.**Check It Out! Example 3**Evaluate each expression for m = 3, n = 2, and p = 9. a.mn mn = 3 · 2 Substitute 3 for m and 2 for n. = 6 Simplify. b. p – n Substitute 9 for p and 2 for n. p – n = 9 – 2 = 7 Simplify. c. p ÷ m p ÷ m = 9 ÷ 3 Substitute 9 for p and 3 for m. = 3 Simplify.**Example 4A: Recycling Application**Approximately eighty-five 20-ounce plastic bottles must be recycled to produce the fiberfill for a sleeping bag. Write an expression for the number of bottles needed to make s sleeping bags. The expression 85s models the number of bottles to make s sleeping bags.**Example 4B: Recycling Application Continued**Approximately eighty-five 20-ounce plastic bottles must be recycled to produce the fiberfill for a sleeping bag. Find the number of bottles needed to make 20, 50, and 325 sleeping bags. Evaluate 85s for s = 20, 50, and 325. To make 20 sleeping bags, 1700 bottles are needed. 85(20) = 1700 To make 50 sleeping bags, 4250 bottles are needed. 85(50) = 4250 To make 325 sleeping bags, 27,625 bottles are needed. 85(325) = 27,625**Writing Math**A replacement set is a set of numbers that can be substituted for a variable. The replacement set in Example 4 is (20, 50, and 325).**Check It Out! Example 4a**To make one sweater, 63 twenty ounce plastic drink bottles must be recycled. Write an expression for the number of bottles needed to make s sweaters. The expression 63s models the number of bottles to make s sweaters.**Check It Out! Example 4b Continued**To make one sweater, 63 twenty ounce plastic drink bottles must be recycled. Find the number of bottles needed to make 12, 25 and 50 sweaters. Evaluate 63s for s = 12, 25, and 50. To make 12 sweaters, 756 bottles are needed. 63(12) = 756 To make 25 sweaters, 1575 bottles are needed. 63(25) = 1575 To make 50 sweaters, 3150 bottles are needed. 63(50) = 3150**Homework Assignment**Pg. 9-11 (27-31, 36, 39-41, 45-47) & Sec. 1-1 Problem Solving Wksht (4-7)
