Objective

Solve one-step equations in one variable by using addition or subtraction.

A solution of an equation is a value of the variable that makes the equation true.

To find solutions, isolate the variable. A variable is isolated when it appears by itself on one side of an equation, and not at all on the other side.

Isolate a variable by using inverse operations which "undo" operations on the variable.

An equation is like a balanced scale. To keep the balance, perform the same operation on both sides.

Example 4: Application

Over 20 years, the population of a town decreased by 275 people to a population of 850. Write and solve an equation to find the original population.

p– d = c

Write an equation to represent the relationship.

p – d = c

p – 275 = 850

Since 275 is subtracted from p, add 275 to both sides to undo the subtraction.

+ 275+ 275

p =1125

The original population was 1125 people.

a+ r = 220

a + r = 220

Write an equation to represent the relationship.

a + 185 = 220

Substitute 185 for r. Since 185 is added to a, subtract 185 from both sides to undo the addition.

– 185– 185

a = 35

A person whose maximum heart rate is 185 beats per minute would be 35 years old.

Objective

Solve one-step equations in one variable by using multiplication or division.

Solving an equation that contains multiplication or division is similar to solving an equation that contains addition or subtraction. Use inverse operations to undo the operations on the variable.

Cost of discount card

Alex belongs to a music club. In this club, students can buy a student discount card for \$19.95. This card allows them to buy CDs for \$3.95 each. After one year, Alex has spent \$63.40.

To find the number of CDs c that Alex bought, you can solve an equation.

Notice that this equation contains multiplication and addition. Equations that contain more than one operation require more than one step to solve. Identify the operations in the equation and the order in which they are applied to the variable. Then use inverse operations and work backward to undo them one at a time.

Example 3A: Simplifying Before Solving Equations

Solve 8x – 21 - 5x = –15.

8x – 21 – 5x = –15

8x – 5x – 21 = –15

Use the Commutative Property of Addition.

3x– 21 = –15

Combine like terms.

Since 21 is subtracted from 3x, add 21 to both sides to undo the subtraction.

3x = 6

Since x is multiplied by 3, divide both sides by 3 to undo the multiplication.

x = 2

Example 3B: Simplifying Before Solving Equations

Solve 10y – (4y + 8) = –20

Write subtraction as addition of the opposite.

10y + (–1)(4y + 8) = –20

10y + (–1)(4y) + (–1)( 8) = –20

Distribute –1 on the left side.

10y – 4y – 8 = –20

Simplify.

6y – 8 = –20

Combine like terms.

Since 8 is subtracted from 6y, add 8 to both sides to undo the subtraction.

6y = –12

Since y is multiplied by 6, divide both sides by 6 to undo the multiplication.

y = –2

Check It Out! Example 4Continued

Since 15.95 is added to 12m, subtract 15.95 from both sides to undo the addition.

735.95 = 12m + 15.95

720 = 12m

Since m is multiplied by 12, divide both sides by 12 to undo the multiplication.

Example 5B: Solving Equations to Find an Indicated Value

If 3d – (9 – 2d) = 51, find the value of 3d.

Step 1 Find the value of d.

3d – (9 – 2d) = 51

3d – 9 + 2d = 51

5d – 9 = 51

Since 9 is subtracted from 5d, add 9 to both sides to undo the subtraction.

5d = 60

Since d is multiplied by 5, divide both sides by 5 to undo the multiplication.

d = 12

Objective

Solve equations in one variable that contain variable terms on both sides.

Equations are often easier to solve when the variable has a positive coefficient. Keep this in mind when deciding on which side to "collect" variable terms.

To solve an equation with variables on both sides, use inverse operations to "collect" variable terms on one side of the equation.

An identity is an equation that is true for all values of the variable. An equation that is an identity has infinitely many solutions.

A contradiction is an equation that is not true for any value of the variable. It has no solutions.

10– 5x+ 1 = 7x+ 11– 12x

11 – 5x = 11 – 5x

11 = 11

The equation 10 – 5x + 1 = 7x + 11 – 12x is an identity. All values of x will make the equation true. All real numbers are solutions.

Example 3B: Infinitely Many Solutions or No Solutions

Solve 12x – 3 + x = 5x – 4 + 8x.

12x – 3 + x = 5x – 4 + 8x

12x– 3+ x = 5x– 4+ 8x

13x – 3 = 13x – 4

–3 = –4

The equation 12x – 3 + x = 5x – 4 + 8x is a contradiction. There is no value of x that will make the equation true. There are no solutions.

Example 4: Application

Jon and Sara are planting tulip bulbs. Jon has planted 60 bulbs and is planting at a rate of 44 bulbs per hour. Sara has planted 96 bulbs and is planting at a rate of 32 bulbs per hour. In how many hours will Jon and Sara have planted the same number of bulbs? How many bulbs will that be?

Example 4: Application Continued

Let b represent bulbs, and write expressions for the number of bulbs planted.

60 + 44b = 96 + 32b

60 + 44b = 96 + 32b

To collect the variable terms on one side, subtract 32b from both sides.

– 32b– 32b

60 + 12b = 96

Example 4: Application Continued

60 + 12b = 96

Since 60 is added to 12b, subtract 60 from both sides.

–60 – 60

12b = 36

Since b is multiplied by 12, divide both sides by 12 to undo the multiplication.

b = 3

Example 4: Application Continued

After 3 hours, Jon and Sara will have planted the same number of bulbs. To find how many bulbs they will have planted in 3 hours, evaluate either expression for b = 3:

60 + 44b = 60 + 44(3) = 60 + 132 = 192

96 + 32b = 96 + 32(3) = 96 + 96 = 192

After 3 hours, Jon and Sara will each have planted 192 bulbs.

Objectives

Solve a formula for a given variable.

Solve an equation in two or more variables for one of the variables.

A formula is an equation that states a rule for a relationship among quantities.

In the formula d = rt, d is isolated. You can "rearrange" a formula to isolate any variable by using inverse operations. This is called solving for a variable.

Example 1: Application

The formula C = d gives the circumference of a circle C in terms of diameter d. The circumference of a bowl is 18 inches. What is the bowl's diameter? Leave the symbol  in your answer.

Now use this formula and the information given in the problem.

Check It Out! Example 1

Solve the formula d = rt for t. Find the time in hours that it would take Ernst Van Dyk to travel 26.2 miles if his average speed was 18 miles per hour.

d = rt

Now use this formula and the information given in the problem.

A = bh

Example 2A: Solving Formulas for a Variable

The formula for the area of a triangle is A = bh,

where b is the length of the base, and is the height. Solve for h.

2A = bh

Remember!

Dividing by a fraction is the same as multiplying by the reciprocal.

ms = w – 10e

–w –w

ms – w = –10e

Example 2B: Solving Formulas for a Variable

The formula for a person’s typing speed is

,where s is speed in words per minute,

w is number of words typed, e is number of errors, and m is number of minutes typing. Solve for e.

A formula is a type of literal equation. A literal equation is an equation with two or more variables. To solve for one of the variables, use inverse operations.

–y –y

x = –y + 15

Example 3: Solving Literal Equations

A. Solve x + y = 15 for x.

x + y = 15

Locate x in the equation.

Since y is added to x, subtract y from both sides to undo the addition.

B. Solve pq = x for q.

pq = x

Locate q in the equation.

Since q is multiplied by p, divide both sides by p to undo the multiplication.

To write this statement using algebra, you would write |x| = 5. This equation asks, “What values of x have an absolute value of 5?” The solutions are 5 and –5. Notice this equation has two solutions.

To solve absolute-value equations, perform inverse operations to isolate the absolute-value expression on one side of the equation. Then you must consider two cases.

Case 2

8= x  2.5

Since 2.5 is subtracted from x add 2.5 to both sides of each equation.

The solutions are {10.5, –5.5}.

Solving an Absolute-Value Equation

1. Use inverse operations to isolate the absolute-value expression.

2. Rewrite the resulting equation as two cases that do not involve absolute values.

3. Solve the equation in each of the two cases.

Not all absolute-value equations have two solutions. If the absolute-value expression equals 0, there is one solution. If an equation states that an absolute-value is negative, there are no solutions.

Additional Example 2A: Special Cases of Absolute-Value Equations

Solve the equation.

8 = |x + 2|  8

Since 8 is subtracted from |x + 2|, add 8 to both sides to undo the subtraction.

There is only one case. Since 2 is added to x, subtract 2 from both sides to undo the addition.

The solution is {2}.

|x + 4| = 3

Additional Example 2B: Special Cases of Absolute-Value Equations

Solve the equation.

3 + |x + 4| = 0

Since 3 is added to |x + 4|, subtract 3 from both sides to undo the addition.

Absolute value cannot be negative.

This equation has no solution.

Remember!

Absolute value must be nonnegative because it represents a distance.

2  |2x 5| = 7

Since 2 is added to –|2x – 5|, subtract 2 from both sides to undo the addition.

Since |2x – 5| is multiplied by negative 1, divide both sides by negative 1.

A support beam for a building must be 3.5 meters long. It is acceptable for the beam to differ from the ideal length by 3 millimeters. Write and solve an absolute-value equation to find the minimum and maximum acceptable lengths for the beam.

First convert millimeters to meters.

Move the decimal point 3 places to the left.

Objectives

Write and use ratios, rates, and unit rates.

Write and solve proportions.

A ratio is a comparison of two quantities by division. The ratio of a to b can be written a:b or , where b ≠ 0. Ratios that name the same comparison are said to be equivalent.

A statement that two ratios are equivalent, such as , is called a proportion.

“1 is to 15 as x is to 675”.

Example 1: Using Ratios

A rate is a ratio of two quantities with different units, such as Rates are usually written as unit rates. A unit rate is a rate with a second quantity of 1 unit, such as or 17 mi/gal. You can convert any rate to a unit rate.

Example 2: Finding Unit Rates

Raulf Laue of Germany flipped a pancake 416 times in 120 seconds to set the world record. Find the unit rate. Round your answer to the nearest hundredth.

The unit rate is about 3.47 flips/s.

A rate such as in which the two quantities are equal but use different units, is called a conversion factor. To convert a rate from one set of units to another, multiply by a conversion factor.

Example 3A: Converting Rates

Serena ran a race at a rate of 10 kilometers per hour. What was her speed in kilometers per minute? Round your answer to the nearest hundredth.

The rate is about 0.17 kilometer per minute.

In example 3A , “1 hr” appears to divide out, leaving “kilometers per minute,” which are the units asked for. Use this strategy of “dividing out” units when converting rates.

Example 3B: Converting Rates

Objectives

Use proportions to solve problems involving geometric figures.

Use proportions and similar figures to measure objects indirectly.

Similar figures have exactly the same shape but not necessarily the same size.

Corresponding sides of two figures are in the same relative position, and corresponding angles are in the same relative position. Two figures are similar if and only if the lengths of corresponding sides are proportional and all pairs of corresponding angles have equal measures.

When stating that two figures are similar, use the symbol ~. For the triangles above, you can write ∆ABC~ ∆DEF. Make sure corresponding vertices are in the same order. It would be incorrect to write ∆ABC ~ ∆EFD.

You can use proportions to find missing lengths in similar figures.

The length of SU is cm.

Example 1A: Finding Missing Measures in Similar Figures

You can solve a proportion involving similar triangles to find a length that is not easily measured. This method of measurement is called indirect measurement. If two objects form right angles with the ground, you can apply indirect measurement using their shadows.

Example 2: Measurement Application

A flagpole casts a shadow that is 75 ft long at the same time a 6-foot-tall man casts a shadow that is 9 ft long. Write and solve a proportion to find the height of the flag pole.

The flagpole is 50 feet tall.

A height of 50 ft seems reasonable for a flag pole. If you got 500 or 5000 ft, that would not be reasonable, and you should check your work.

Circle B

The ratio of the areas is the square of the ratio of the radii.

The ratio of the circumference is equal to the ratio of the radii.

Every dimension of a rectangular prism with length of 12, cm, and height 9 cm is multiplied by to get a similar rectangular prism. How is the ratio of the volumes related to the ratio of the corresponding dimensions?

Example 3B: Changing Dimensions

Prism A

Prism B

V = lwh

(12)(3)(9) = 324

(4)(1)(3) = 12

The ratio of the volumes is the cube of the ratio of the corresponding dimensions.

A scale factor between 0 and 1 reduces a figure. A scale factor greater than 1 enlarges it.

Principal

Interest is the amount of money charged for borrowing money, or the amount of money earned when saving or investing money. Principal is the amount borrowed or invested. Simple interest is interest paid only on the principal.

Simple Interest Paid Annually

Example 2A: Financial Application

Find the simple interest paid for 3 years on a \$2500 loan at 11.5% per year.

I = Prt

I = (2500)(0.115)(3)

I = 862.50

The amount of interest is \$862.50.

Multiply 5000 .. Since r is multiplied by 2500, divide both sides by 2500 to undo the multiplication.

Example 2B: Financial Application

After 6 months, the simple interest earned on an investment of \$5000 was \$45. Find the interest rate.

Write the formula for simple interest.

I = Prt

Substitute the given values.

45 = 2500r

0.018 = r

The interest rate is 1.8%.

When you are using the formula I= Prt to find simple interest paid annually, t represents time in years. One month is year.

Check It Out! Example 2a

I = 270

The interest earned is \$270.

A tip is an amount of money added to a bill for service. it is usually a percent of the bill before sales tax is added. Sales taxis a percent of an item’s cost.

• Find 1% of a number by moving the decimal point two places to the left.
• Find 5% of a number by finding of 10% of the number.

Sales tax and tips are sometimes estimated instead of calculated exactly. When estimating percents, use percents that you can calculate mentally.

Example 3A: Estimating with Percents

Lunch at a restaurant is \$27.88. Estimate a 15% tip.

Step 1 First round \$27.88 to \$30.

Move the decimal point one place left.

Step 2 Think: 15% = 10% + 5%10% of \$30 = \$3.00

Step 3 Think 5% = 10% ÷ 2

= \$3.00÷ 2 = \$1.50

Step 4 15 = 10% + 5% = \$3.00 + \$1.50 = \$4.50

The tip should be about \$4.50.

Objective

Find percent increase and decrease.

A percent change is an increase or decrease given as a percent of the original amount. Percent increase describes an amount that has grown and percent decrease describes an amount that has be reduced.

Example 1A: Finding Percent Increase and Decrease

Find each percent change. Tell whether it is a percent increase or decrease.

From 8 to 10

Simplify the numerator.

= 0.25

= 25%

8 to 10 is an increase, so a change from 8 to 10 is a 25% increase.

Before solving, decide what is a reasonable answer. For Example 1A, 8 to 16 would be a 100% increase. So 8 to 10 should be much less than 100%.

Check It Out! Example 1a

Find each percent change. Tell whether it is a percent increase or decrease.

From 200 to 110

Simplify the numerator.

= 45%

200 to 110 is an decrease, so a change from 200 to 110 is a 60% decrease.

Example 2: Finding Percent Increase and Decrease

A. Find the result when 12 is increased by 50%.

Find 50% of 12. This is the amount of increase.

0.50(12) = 6

It is a percent increase, so add 6 to the original amount.

12 + 6 =18

12 increased by 50% is 18.

B. Find the result when 55 is decreased by 60%.

Find 60% of 55. This is the amount of decrease.

0.60(55) = 33

It is a percent decrease so subtract 33 from the the original amount.

55 – 33 = 22

55 decreased by 60% is 22.

Common application of percent change are discounts and markups.

A discount is an amount by which an original price is reduced.

A markup is an amount by which a wholesale price is increased.

Example 3: Discounts

The entrance fee at an amusement park is \$35. People over the age of 65 receive a 20% discount. What is the amount of the discount? How much do people over 65 pay?

Method 1 A discount is a percent decrease. So find \$35 decreased by 20%.

Find 20% of 35. This is the amount of the discount.

0.20(35) = 7

35 – 7 = 28

Subtract 7 from 35. This is the entrance fee for people over the age of 65.

Example 3A: Discounts

Method 2 Subtract the percent discount from 100%.

People over the age of 65 pay 80% of the regular price, \$35.

100% – 20% = 80%

0.80(35) = 28

Find 80% of 35. This is the entrance fee for people over the age of 65.

35 – 28 = 7

Subtract 28 from 35. This is the amount of the discount.

By either method, the discount is \$7. People over the age of 65 pay \$28.00.

Example 3B: Discounts

A student paid \$31.20 for art supplies that normally cost \$52.00. Find the percent discount .

Think: 20.80 is what percent of 52.00? Let x represent the percent.

\$52.00 – \$31.20 = \$20.80

20.80 = x(52.00)

Since x is multiplied by 52.00, divide both sides by 52.00 to undo the multiplication.

0.40 = x

Write the answer as a percent.

40% = x

The discount is 40%

Check It Out! Example 3a

A \$220 bicycle was on sale for 60% off. Find the sale price.

Method 2 Subtract the percent discount from 100%.

100% – 60% = 40%

The bicycle was 60% off of 100% .

0.40(220) = 88

Find 40% of 220.

By this method, the sale price is \$88.

Example 4: Markups

The wholesale cost of a DVD is \$7. The markup is 85%. What is the amount of the markup? What is the selling price?

Method 1

Method 2

A markup is a percent increase. So find \$7 increased by 85%.

Find 85% of 7. This is the amount of the markup.

The selling price is 185% of the wholesale price, 7.

100% + 85% = 185%

0.85(7) = 5.95

1.85(7) = 12.95

7 + 5.95 = 12.95

Add to 7. This is the selling price.

Find 185% of 7. This is the selling price.

12.95  7 = 5.95

Subtract from 12.95. This is the amount of the markup.

By either method, the amount of the markup is \$5.95. The selling price is \$12.95.

Check It Out! Example 4

A video game has a 70% markup. The wholesale cost is \$9. What is the selling price?

Method 1

A markup is a percent increase. So find \$9 increased by 70%.

Find 70% of 9. This is the amount of the markup.

0.70(9) = 6.30

9 + 6.30 = 15.30

Add to 9. This is the selling price.

The amount of the markup is \$6.30. The selling price is \$15.30.
