EVALUATING VARIABLE EXPRESSIONS

1

GOAL

  • VOCABULARY
    • variable
    • values
    • variable expression
    • evaluating an expression
slide3

EXAMPLE 1

  • To evaluate a variable expression, follow these three steps:
    • Write the variable expression.
    • Substitutevalues for variables.
    • Simplify the numerical expression.
slide4

Evaluate each expression when y = 3. Click for solutions.

1. 4y 2. 3. y + 8 4. 18 - y

EXAMPLE 2

Extra Example 1

extra example 2

Find the average speed, of a car that traveled 89 miles in 2 hours.

Solution:

average speed

EXAMPLE 3

Extra Example 2

44.5 mi/h

extra example 3

Find the perimeter, a + b + c, of the triangle. The dimensions are in centimeters.

Click to see the solution.

b = 1.75

a = 1

c = 2.25

Extra Example 3

Perimeter = a + b + c

=

1 + 1.75 + 2.25

=

5 cm

Extra Example 4

Find the simple interest, Prt, you will earn in two years on a deposit of $870 at a rate of 5% per year.

Click for the solution.

Simple interest = Prt

Did you remember to

convert the interest rate

to a decimal number?

These units

cancel.

Extra Example 5

You plan to ride your bicycle to school and back at an average rate of 6 miles per hour for a distance of 10.5 miles. How long will it take you? Click to see the solution.

Time = t

Distance = 10.5 miles
