How to Solve a Word Problem:

• Step 1: Read the problem until you understand it.
• What are we asked to find?
• What information is given?
• What vocabulary is being used?
• Step 2: Assign a variable to represent what you are looking for.
• Express any remaining unknown quantities in terms of this variable.
• Step 3: Make a list of all known facts and form an equation or inequality to solve.
• It may help to make a labeled: diagram, table or chart, graph
• Step 4: Solve
• Step 5: State the solution in a complete sentence by mirroring the original question.
• Be sure to include units when necessary.
• Step 6: Check your result(s) in the words of the problem
• Does your solution make sense?

2.3 Solving Applications Involving Linear Equations

Example:Peter Griffin receives \$375 per week for selling new and used cars in Quahog, Rhode Island. In addition, he receives 5% of the profit on any sales he generates. Write a linear equation that relates Peter’s weekly salary S when he has sales that generate a profit of p dollars.

2.3 Solving Applications Involving Linear Equations

Example:Quahog Power and Light Company supplies electricity to residential customers for a monthly customer charge of \$5.17 plus 10.07 cents per kilowatt-hour for up to 1000 kilowatt hours.

a. Write a linear equation that relates the monthly charge C, in dollars, to the number x of kilowatt hours used in a month

b. Graph this equation.

c. What is the monthly charge for using 200 kilowatt hours?

d. Interpret the slope of the line.

2.3 Solving Applications Involving Linear Equations

Independent Practice

You learn math by doing math. The best way to learn math is to practice, practice, practice. The assigned homework examples provide you with an opportunity to practice. Be sure to complete every assigned problem (or more if you need additional practice). Check your answers to the odd-numbered problems in the back of the text to see whether you have correctly solved each problem; rework all problems that are incorrect.
