5.8 Applications and Problem Solving a Translate key phrases to algebraic expressions. Slide 9Copyright 2012, 2008, 2004, 2000 Pearson Education, Inc. It is helpful to choose a descriptive variable to represent the unknown. For example, w suggests weight and g suggests the number of gallons of gasoline.

Title 5.8 Applications and Problem Solving Slide 10Copyright 2012, 2008, 2004, 2000 Pearson Education, Inc. Use a specific number in the statement before translating using the variable. Write down what each variable represents. Check the translation with another number to see if it matches the phrase. Be especially careful with order when subtracting and dividing.

A 100-unit syringe is often used by diabetics and nurses to administer insulin. Each unit on the syringe represents 0.01 cc (cubic centimeter). Each day, Wendy averages 42 units of insulin. How many cc’s will Wendy use in a typical week? 1. Familiarize. We let a = the amount of insulin used.

We let the size of each monthly payment. To find the number of payments, we determine how many months there are in 5 yr. (We could also find the amount paid per year and divide that number by 12.) 2. Translate. To find the amount of the monthly payment, we note that the amount owed is split up, or divided, into payments of equal size. To find the number of payments, we determine that in 5 yr there are 60 months.

In any circle, a diameter is a segment that passes through the center of the circle with endpoints on the circle. A radius is a segment with one endpoint on the center and the other endpoint on the circle. The area, A, of a circle with radius of length r is given by Where The length r of a radius of a circle is half the length d of a diameter:

We can repeat our calculation as a check. Note that 7.74 is less than the area of the disc, which in turn is less than the area of the square. This agrees with the impression given by our drawing. 5. State. The amount of material left over is 7.74 cm 2.

Around the Bend Expeditions offers a 2-day canyon trip combining biking and canoeing. Those participating will ride mountain bikes for 12 miles longer than the distance paddled. The total length of the trip is 43 miles. How long is the biking portion of the trip, and how long is the canoeing portion of the trip?

EXAMPLE 5.8 Applications and Problem Solving b Solve applied problems involving decimals. 9Multi-sport Recreation. Slide 28Copyright 2012, 2008, 2004, 2000 Pearson Education, Inc. 1. Familiarize. We first list the quantities we are asked to find: Length of biking portion, in miles Length of canoeing portion, in miles. We will want to represent both quantities using only one variable. To do so, we use the second sentence in the problem:

EXAMPLE 5.8 Applications and Problem Solving b Solve applied problems involving decimals. 9Multi-sport Recreation. Slide 29Copyright 2012, 2008, 2004, 2000 Pearson Education, Inc. Those participating will ride mountain bikes for 12 miles longer than the distance paddled. Since the biking portion of the trip is described in terms of the canoeing portion, we let x = the length of the canoeing portion, in miles. Then the length of the biking portion, also in miles, is x + 12. Length of biking portion, in miles: x Length of canoeing portion, in miles: x + 12.

EXAMPLE 5.8 Applications and Problem Solving b Solve applied problems involving decimals. 9Multi-sport Recreation. Slide 32Copyright 2012, 2008, 2004, 2000 Pearson Education, Inc. 4. Check. There are two statements in the problem to verify. First since 27.5 – 15.5 = 12, the biking portion is 12 miles longer than the canoeing portion. Second, since 27.5 + 15.5 = 43, the total length of the trip is 43 miles. 5. State. The biking portion of the trip is 27.5 miles, and the canoeing portion is 15.5 miles.
