1-2 Algebraic Expressions
1.03 Operate with algebraic expressions (polynomial, rational, complex fractions) to solve problems. What you’ll learn … To evaluate algebraic expressions To simplify algebraic expressions

Evaluating Algebraic Expressions
A variable is a symbol, usually a letter, that represents one or more numbers. An expression that contains one or more variables is an algebraic expression or a variable expression. When you substitute numbers for the variables in an expression and follow the order of operations, you evaluate the expression.

x + y ÷ x c2 - d2 3x – 4y + x – y c(3 – d) – c2 x + 2x ÷ y - 2y
Example 1- Evaluating an Algebraic Expression For x = 4 and y = -2 x + y ÷ x 3x – 4y + x – y x + 2x ÷ y - 2y Example 2- Evaluating an Algebraic Expression with Exponents For c = -3 and d = 5 c2 - d2 c(3 – d) – c2 -d2 - 4(d – 2c)

Example 3 Real World Connection
The expression -3y +61 models the percent of eligible voters who voted in presidential elections from 1960 to In the expression, y represents the number of years since Find the approximate percent of eligible voters who voted in 1988.

Simplifying Algebraic Expressions
In an algebraic expression such as x +10, the parts that are added are called terms. A term is a number, a variable, or the product of a number and one or more variables. The numerical factor in a term is the coefficient. Like terms have the same variables raised to the same powers.

Example 4 Combining Like Terms
3k - k 5z2 – 10z – 8z2 + z -(m – n) +2(m – 3n) y(1 + y)- 3y2 – (y + 1)

Example 5 Finding Perimeter
3c d y 6c – 2d 2x d 2x – y 2d 3x 3c 8c +d 6c – 2d 5x – 2y

1-3 Solving Equations 1.03 Operate with algebraic expressions (polynomial, rational, complex fractions) to solve problems. What you’ll learn … To solve equations To solve problems by writing equations

Solving Equations An equations that contains a variable may be true for some replacements of the variable and false for others. A number that makes the equation true is a solution of the equation.

Properties of Equality
Reflexive Property a = a Symmetric Property If a=b then b=a Transitive Property If a=b and b=c then a=c Addition Property If a=b then a+c = b+c Subtraction Property If a=b then a-c = b-c Multiplication Property If a=b then ac = bc Division Property If a=b and c≠0 then a/c = b/c Substitution Property If a=b then b can be substituted for a in any expression to obtain an equivalent expression.

Steps to Solving Equations
Simplify each side of the equation, if needed, by distributing or combining like terms. Move variables to one side of the equation by using the opposite operation of addition or subtraction. Isolate the variable by applying the opposite operation to each side. First, use the opposite operation of addition or subtraction. Second, use the opposite operation of multiplication or division. Check your answer.

Example 1 Solving an Equation with a Variable on Both Sides
13y + 48 = 8y - 47 2t – 3 = 9 – 4t

Example 2 Using the Distributive Property
3x – 7(2x – 13) = 3(-2x +9) 6(t – 2) = 2(9 – 2t)

Example 3 Solving a Formula for One of Its Variables

Example 5 Real World Connection

Example 6 Using Ratios The lengths of the sides of a triangle are in the ratio 3:4:5. The perimeter of the triangle is 18 in. Find the lengths of the sides. The lengths of the sides of a triangle are in the ratio 12:13:15. The perimeter of the triangle is 120 cm. Find the lengths of the sides.

Example 7 Real World Connection
Radar detected an unidentified plane 5000 mi away, approaching at 700 mi/h. Fifteen minutes later an interceptor plane was dispatched, traveling at 800 mi/h. How long did the interceptor take to reach the approaching plane?

1-4 Solving Inequalities
What you’ll learn … To solve and graph inequalities To solve and write compound inequalities 1.03 Operate with algebraic expressions (polynomial, rational, complex fractions) to solve problems.

Properties of Inequalities
Let a, b and c represent real numbers. Transitive Property If a≤b and b≤c, then a≤c. Addition Property If a≤b, then a+c ≤b+c. Subtraction Property If a≤b, then a-c ≤b-c. Multiplication Property If a≤b and c>0, then ac ≤bc. If a≤b and c<0, then ac ≥bc. Division Property If a≤b and c>0, then a/c ≤b/c. If a≤b and c<0, then a/c ≥b/c.

Solving Inequalities To solve an inequality, use the same procedure as solving an equation with one exception. When multiplying or dividing by a negative number, reverse the direction of the inequality sign. To graph the solution set, circle the boundary and shade according to the inequality. Use an open circle for < or > and closed circles for ≤ or ≥.

A compound inequality is a pair of inequalities that are joined by the words “and” or “or”.
