Example 3 Modeling with Mixed Numbers A board is inches long. You cut off a piece inches long. The saw blade destroys an additional inch of wood, which is equal to the blade’s width. What is the length of the remaining piece of wood? CARPENTRY 8 5 36 4 3 12 1 16

6
Example 3 Modeling with Mixed Numbers SOLUTION 8 5 36 =– 4 3 12 1 16 + Write an algebraic model. 16 10 36 =– 16 12 1 16 + Rewrite fractions using LCD of 16. 16 10 36 =– 16 13 12 Add inside parentheses.

7
Example 3 Modeling with Mixed Numbers 16 26 35 = – 16 13 12 ANSWER The remaining piece of wood is inches long. 16 13 23 =+ 13 16 – 26 16 () 12 – 35 Write mixed numbers in expanded form and use the commutative property. 16 13 23 = Subtract whole numbers and fractions. Rename as. 16 10 36 16 26 35

Guided Practice Find the sum or difference. Then simplify if possible. for Examples 1, 2, and 3 1. + 3 1 9 5 ANSWER 9 2 3. + 12 7 4 1 ANSWER 6 5 24 1 – – 2. 10 3 + 5 4 ANSWER 10 1 1 4. – 3 1 8 3

9
Guided Practice Find the sum or difference. Then simplify if possible. for Examples 1, 2, and 3 5. – 3 10 9 6. 12 5 – 9 7 ANSWER 36 13 – ANSWER 10 1 2

10
Guided Practice for Examples 1, 2, and 3 7. WHAT IF? In Example 3, suppose you cut inches off the original piece of wood. What is the length of the remaining piece of wood? 6 5 4 ANSWER 48 35 31 in.
