**1.1 Variables in Algebra 1 GOAL EVALUATING VARIABLE EXPRESSIONS**

VOCABULARY variable values variable expression evaluating an expression

3
**To evaluate a variable expression, follow these three steps: **

Write the variable expression. Substitute values for variables. Simplify the numerical expression. EXAMPLE 1

Extra Example 2 Find the average speed, of a car that traveled 89 miles in 2 hours. Solution: average speed 44.5 mi/h EXAMPLE 3

6
Extra Example 3 Find the perimeter, a + b + c, of the triangle. The dimensions are in centimeters. Click to see the solution. a = 1 b = 1.75 c = 2.25 Perimeter = a + b + c = = 5 cm

7
Checkpoint 1. Find the average speed of a car that travels 225 miles in 4.5 hours. 50 mi/h Find the perimeter of the triangle. The dimensions are in inches. Click for the answers. c = 6.7 a = 8 b = 8 EXAMPLE 4 22.7 in

**convert the interest rate**

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. $87
