Slope-Intercept Form                   Name __________________
Parent Signature _____________________

When a formula is in slope-intercept form, we can easily find the slope and
intercept of the graph.

For Example: A = 8 + 3 X P is in slope-intercept form because we can
see that the slope is 3 and the intercept is 8.

For each formula, find the slope and the intercept.

1. For the formula D = 400 + 50 X H:

The slope is _____ and the intercept is ______.

2. For the formula M = 50 – 2 X B:

The slope is _____ and the intercept is ______.

3. For the formula C = 25 X R + 650:

The slope is _____ and the intercept is ______.

4. For the formula T = 5.60 X P

The slope is _____ and the intercept is ______.

How do you know which number is the slope?

How do you know which number is the intercept?

Which formula’s graph has the steeper slope? Why?
A. T = 40 + 3 X P       Or         B. T = 20 + 4 X P

Make Formulas Mean Something                Name __________________
Parent Signature _____________________

Often in math classes we practice with formulas that have no specific
meaning. For example, the formula J =70 – 3 X B has no particular meaning
because we don’t know what the variables J and B represent. Let’s see if we
can make up a rule for the formula. We can see two things for sure:
1. The intercept is 70
2. The slope is -3.
The formula suggest that something called J starts at 70 then goes
down in steps of 3 for every one of something called B.

Think about something represented by the variable J that could start at 70
and decrease in steps of 3.
Example: J = The temperature in Juan’s room.
1. ____________________________________________
2. ____________________________________________
3. ____________________________________________

For each of the J’s we listed let’s find something represented by the
variable B that relates to the decrease in J.
Example: B = The hours after Juan turns off the heat.
1. ____________________________________________
2. ____________________________________________
3. ____________________________________________

Write a rule for each situation.
Example: The temperature in Juan’s room started at 700 then
decreased by 30 every hour after he turned off the heat.

Solving Equations with Inverse Machines

The equation 3x - 5 = 22 can be shown as a machine.
If we make the inverse machine of 3x – 5 and put 22 into it, we can find the
x that makes the equation true.

Check this out!

3x – 5 Times by 3 then reduce by 5
is 22

Increase by 5 then divide by 3
( 22 + 5)  3
27  3

How can we see that x = 9 makes the equation true?

Solve the equations using these three steps.
1. Write what happened to the variable.
2. Write the inverse by reversing what happened to the variable.
3. Use the inverse to solve the equation. (You solve an equation when you
find out what makes it true.)
4. Always check your answer.

One way to represent the product of two numbers is to draw a rectangular
array.
For example the product 3  2 can be illustrated with the following array:

3

This array shows that 3 groups of 2 are the same as 2 groups of 3. The
Product is 6.

How could we use an array to solve the M&M problem?

Decomposing Numbers
Name____________________

A sum is the result of addition. For example the sum of 3 and 4 is written
( 3 + 4 ), which can be written as 7. The sum of Q and 8 can only be written
as ( Q + 8 ) if we do not know the value of Q.

Write each number as 3 different sums.

1.   45      a)                         b)                         c)

A product is the result of multiplication. For example the product of 3 and
7 is written  3  7  , which can be written as 21. The product of 5 and B can
only be written as 5B or 5  B unless you know the value of B.

Write each number as 3 different products.

5.   24      a)                         b)                         d)

8.   72      a)                         b)                         d)

Some products are easy to find.
Explain why the following numbers are easy to multiply.

9. ( 300 X 5000)

10. ( 13 X 1,000)

124
When you multiply with arrays, make sure you write each number as a sum of
easy numbers to multiply. If you have to use a calculator for any step, you
probably need to use easier numbers.

For example the product 47 X 58 can be found in the following way

58

50                        8

The Inverse Property of Multiplication says that every number but zero has
a reciprocal, and that when you multiply a number by its reciprocal you get 1.

b           1
Finish the generalization:            1,   b   ________
b           b

This means that dividing by 2 is the same as multiply by ½.

It also means that dividing by ½ is the same as multiplying by 2. The same
goes for any number and its reciprocal.

Big Idea: “Dividing is the same as multiplying by the reciprocal.”
Generalization: a  b 

Change each division problems to a multiplication problem.

The Commutative Property of Multiplication means:

Generalization: ab =

Solving Equations by Balancing

Solving equations by balancing is very similar to solving with inverses.

Solve 4x + 3 = 11

Inverses                                      Balancing

x was multiplied by 4 then increased           Undo but keep the equation
by 3 to get 11                                balanced at all times.
11 can be decreased by 3 then
divided by 4 to get x                   equation balanced at all times.
(11 – 3)/4
4x + 3 = 11
8/4
-3 -3 subtract 3 from both
sides
2
4x + 0 = 8      (identity property of +)

147
4x = 8

4x = 8       divide by sides by 4

4     4

1x = 2     (identity property of X)

x = 2 the variable is isolated
To isolate the variable means:

Combine like terms then solve equation by balancing. Show every step.
Check your answer by substituting it back into the equation to see if it
makes a true statement.

Tanya has \$20 to buy food at a roadside stand. She can buy F pounds of fruit at \$2 per
pound or N pounds of nuts at \$5 per pound. If Tanya spends all \$20, the equation
2F + 5N = 20
describes all of the possible weight combinations of nuts and fruit that she could buy.

Use the equation 2F + 5N = 20 to answer the following questions.

1. How many pounds of nuts can Tanya buy if she buys 10 pounds of fruit?

2. How many pounds of fruit can she get if she buys 2 pounds of nuts?

3. How many pounds of nuts can Tanya buy if she buys 2 pounds of fruit?

4. How many pounds of nuts can she buy if she buys 0 pounds of fruit?

For her book club, Courtney wants to have crackers and cheese on hand. She has \$45 to
buy mozzarella and gouda cheese. Courtney already has crackers. She can buy M pounds of
mozzarella at \$5 per pound or G pounds of gouda at \$8 per pound. If Courtney spends all
\$45, the equation
5M + 8G = 45
describes all of the possible weight combinations of mozzarella and gouda that she could
buy.

Use the equation 5M + 8G = 45 to answer the following questions.
1. How many pounds of gouda can Courtney buy if she buys 9 pounds of mozzarella?

2. How many pounds of mozzarella can she get if she buys 3 pounds of gouda?

3. How many pounds of gouda can Courtney buy if she buys 2 pounds of mozzarella?
