Writing & Evaluating Variable Expressions Chapter 1-3 Pre-Algebra Prentice Hall

2
Evaluation Variable Expressions To evaluate a variable expression, you first replace each variable with a number. Than, you use the order of operations to simplify the expression. Evaluate: 4y − 15 for y = 9 ◦ First replace the variable y with number 9 ◦ 4∙9 − 15 ◦ Than use order of operation to simplify: ◦ 36 − 15 = 21

Quick Check Evaluate each expression. 1. 6(g + h), for g = 8 and h =7 ◦ 90 2. 2xy – z, for x = 4, y = 3, z = 1 ◦ 23 3. for r = 13, and s = 11 ◦ 12
