Algebra 1 Operations: Add, Subtract, Multiply, Divide

Vocabulary Additive Identity: the number 0 (in the identity property)
Additive Inverse: the number’s opposite (in the inverse property)

EXAMPLE 3: Identify Properties of Addition
Statement Property illustrated a. (x + 9) + 2 = x + (9 + 2) Associative property of addition *You must group when you are adding more than 2 items Inverse property of addition b (– 8.3) = 0 *Adding a number and its’ opposite equals zero c. – y = (– y) Commutative property of addition *You can add in any order

Find the sum. a. – (– 4.9) = – ( – – 4.9 ) Rule of same signs = – ( ) Take absolute values. = – 10.2 Add. b (–12.2) Rule of different signs = – –12.2 = 19.3 – 12.2 Take absolute values. = 7.1 Subtract.

GUIDED PRACTICE 1. – 0.6 + (– 6.7) Rule of same signs
Find the sum. 1. – (– 6.7) = – (| – 0.6 | + | – 6.7| ) Rule of same signs = – ( ) Take absolute values. = – 7.3 Add. Find the sum. (– 16.2) = – ( |10.1| + |– 16.2| ) Rule of different signs = 10.1 – 16.2 Take absolute values. = – 6.1 Subtract.

GUIDED PRACTICE 1. 7 + (– 7) = 0 Inverse property of addition
Find the sum. 3. – = – |– 13.1 | + |8.7| Rule of different signs = – Take absolute values. = – 4.4 Subtract. Identify the property being illustrated. (– 7) = 0 Inverse property of addition 2. – = – 12 Identity property of addition = 8 + 4 Commutative property of addition

EXAMPLE 1: Subtract Real Numbers
Find the difference. a. – 12 – 19 = – 12 + (– 19) = – 31 b – (–7) = = 25

1. – 2 – 7 = – 2 + (– 7) = – 9 – (– 5) = = 16.7 3. -

EXAMPLE 2: Evaluate a Variable Expression
Evaluate the expression y – x when x = – 2 and y = 7.2 y – x = 7.2– (–2) + 6.8 Substitute – 2 for x and 7.2 for y. = Add the opposite – 2. = 16 Add.

GUIDED PRACTICE x – y + 8 = – 3 – (5.2) + 8 = – 3 – 5.2 + 8 = – 0.2
Evaluate the expression when x = – 3 and y = 5.2. 1. x – y + 8 = – 3 – (5.2) + 8 = – 3 – = – 0.2 2. y – (x – 2) = 5.2 – (– 3 – 2) = 5.2 – (– 5 ) = = 10.2

GUIDED PRACTICE 3. (y – 4) – x = (5.2 – 4) – (– 3) = = 4.2

Vocabulary Multiplicative Inverse: 1/a; the reciprocal of a number a so that when they are multiplied the product is 1

EXAMPLE 1 Multiply real numbers Find the product. a. – 3 (6) = – 18
Different signs; product is negative. a. – 3 (6) = – 18 b (–5) (–4) (–10) (–4) = Multiply 2 and – 5. Same signs; product is positive. = 40 Multiply – and – 4 1 2 c. – (–4) (–3) 1 2 = 2 (– 3) = – 6 Different signs; product is negative.

GUIDED PRACTICE Find the product. 1. – 2 (– 7) = (– 2) (– 7) = 14
1. – 2 (– 7) = (– 2) (– 7) = 14 Same signs; product is positive. 2. – 0.5 (– 4) (– 9) = (2) (– 9) Multiply – 0.5 and – 4. = – 18 Different signs; product is negative. (–3) (7) 4 3 = – 4 (7) Multiply and – 3. 4 3 = – 28 Different signs; product is negative.
