Good Luck
3 What AreVariables?A Variable is a letter that represents an unknown number.The UNKNOWN??An Algebraic expression is a mathematical phrase with an unknown.Some examples:n + 7x – 53p
4 VOCABULARY IS IMPORTANT IN ALGEBRA Special Words used in algebraAddition : more than, added to, plus, sum ofSubtraction: less than, subtracted from, minus, differenceMultiply: times, product, multiplied byDivide: divided by, quotient“Seven more than n” 7 + n“the difference of n and 7” n – 7“the product of n and 7” 7n“the quotient of n and 7”
5 Now you try… “the sum of t and 15 ” t + 15 “two times a number x” 2x “9 less than a number y”y - 9Practice Problems“the difference of a number p and 3”p - 3
6 An equation has an = sign and an expression does not! An Algebraic Equation is a mathematical sentence.Some examples:n + 7 = 10x – 5 = 33p = 15An equation has an = sign and an expression does not!
7 More Practice... Write an expression for each phrase… 1. “3 times the quantity x minus 5”2. “the product of -6and the quantity 7 minus m”3. “The product of 14 and the quantity 8 plus w”
8 Examples of True Equations: 2 + 3 = 5 6 – 5 = 0 + 1 Examples of Open Equations:2 + x = 516 – 5 = x + 5Open equations have one or more variables!
9 “2 more than twice a number is 5” 2 + 2x = 5 2 + 2x = 5 Writing Equations:“2 more than twice a number is 5”x = 52 + 2x = 5Use Key words to createAn equation……“a number divided by 3 is 8”x = 8or
10 Now you try… “the sum of a number and ten is the same as 15” x + 10 = 15Sometimes you have to decide what the variable is…It can be any letter. We usually see x and y used as variables.
11 Word Problems Now you Try..... “The total pay is the number of hours times 8.50”a. H + T= 8.50b. T = 8.50 hc. 8.50H= TSometimes an equation will have two different variables.
12 We use a table of values to represent a relationship. Number of hoursTotal pay in dollars54010801512020160an equation.Total pay = (number of hours) times (hourly pay)What is the hourly pay?$8 per hourTotal pay = 8 (number of hours)T = 8h
13 C = 8.50 n Number of CDs Cost 1 $8.50 2 $17.00 3 $25.50 4 $34.00 Cost = $8.50 times (number of CDs)C = 8.50 n
14 Coming up with an Equation Cost of purchaseChange from $20$20.00$0$19.00$1$17.50$2.50$11.59$8.41Remember?Ask Yourself…..What relationship is shown here?
15 If something costs $20, your change is $0. Cost of purchaseChange from $20$20.00$0$19.00$1$17.50$2.50$11.59$8.41This table shows how much change you get back if you pay with a twenty.If something costs $20, your change is $0.If something costs $19, your change is $1.If something costs $17.50, your change is $2.50.If something costs $11.59, your change is $8.41.
16 Cost of purchaseChange from $20$20.00$0$19.00$1$17.50$2.50$11.59$8.41Change from $20 = 20 minus Cost of purchaseC = 20 - PThis one was a little different. You have to look for the relationship. Another way is to see how we get the 2nd column from the first.How do we get change from $20 from the cost of purchase?We subtract the cost of purchase from 20 to get the change.
17 Order of OperationsAnd ExponentsPEMDASProperties of Exponents
18 P E M D A SWe use order of operations to help us get the right answer. PEMDASParentheses first, then exponents, then multiplication and division, then addition and subtraction.In the above example, we multiply first and then add.
19 Simplify an expression... Example*First, exponentsNext, multiply & divideNext, add
20 Simplify an expression... First, simplify what is in the parenthesesNext, divideFinally, add
21 Simplify an expression... Simplify the inner parentheses firstThen simplify the exponentThen, simplify what is in the bracketsNext, apply the exponentThen add
22 Steps to simplify an expression Simplify: Make SimpleRemember order of operations!If there are no parentheses, so we go straight to the exponent.Next, we multiply.Then we subtract.Then we add.
23 Apply order of operations within the parentheses Apply order of operations within the parentheses. Always follow order of operations starting with the inside parentheses.P ParenthesesE ExponentsM MultiplicationD DivisionA AdditionS Subtraction}Left to right}Left to right
24 What are exponents?An exponent tells you how many times to multiply a number (the base) by itself.Means 2 times 2 times 2 times 2Or 2 · 2 · 2 · 2This is also read as“2 to the 4th power”
27 Evaluate..We evaluate expressions by plugging numbers in for the variables.Example:Evaluate the expression for c = 5 and d = 2.2c + 3dWe plug a 5 in for c and a 2 in for d.Then we follow order of operations.
28 Evaluate for x = 11 and y = 8First, plug in 11 for x and 8 for yThen apply order of operationsNotice on this example, the exponent is only attached to the y.
29 Now you try…Evaluate the expression if m = 3, p = 7, and q = 4
30 Now you try…Evaluate the expression if m = 3, p = 7, and q = 4
31 Exploring Real Numbers In algebra, there are different sets of numbers.Natural numbers start with 1 and go on forever1, 2, 3, 4, …Whole numbers start with 0 and go on forever0, 1, 2, 3,…Integers include all negative numbers, zero, and all positive numbers… -3, -2, -1, 0, 1, 2, 3,…
32 In algebra, we also have rational and irrational numbers. In Algebra 1, we will deal primarily with rational numbers. You will study irrational numbers in Algebra 2.Rational numbers can be written as a fraction. Rational numbers in decimal form do not repeat and have an end.Examples of rational numbers:
33 Irrational numbers are repeating or non-terminating decimals or numbers that cannot be written as a fraction.Examples of irrational numbers:
34 Inequalities An inequality compares the value of two expressions. x is less than or equal to 5x is greater than 3x is greater than or equal to 3
35 We use inequalities to compare fractions and decimals. <>=
36 We can also order fractions and/or decimals We can also order fractions and/or decimals. Pay attention to whether it says to order them least to greatest or vice versa.Order from least to greatest:
37 Opposite numbers are the same distance from zero on the number line. -3 and 3 are opposites of each otherZero is the only number without an opposite!
38 The absolute value of a number is its distance from zero The absolute value of a number is its distance from zero. Because distance is ALWAYS positive, so is absolute value.You know you have to find absolute value when a number has two straight lines on either side of it.Means the absolute value of 5.How far is 5 from zero?5 unitsMeans the absolute value of – 5.How far is – 5 from zero?5 units*So both
39 Now you try… - 7 4 3 10 What is the opposite of 7?
40 Adding Real Numbers Identity Property of Addition Adding zero to a number does not change the number5 + 0 = 5= - 3Inverse Property of AdditionWhen you add a number to its opposite, the result is zero= 0= 0
41 Adding numbers with the same sign… Keep the sign and add the numbers Rule 1Examples:Note: the ( ) around the -6 just shows that the negative belongs with the 6.
42 Adding numbers with different signs… Take the sign of the number with the larger absolute value and subtract the numbers.Rule 2Examples:6 is the number with the larger distance from zero (absolute value) so the answer is positive6 – 2 = 45 has the larger absolute value so the answer is negative5 – 3 = 2The answer is - 2
45 Lets try some evaluate problems Lets try some evaluate problems. Remember to plug the numbers in for the variables.Evaluate the expression for a = - 2, b = 3, and c = - 4.The “-” in front of the a can also be read “the opposite of”The opposite of – 2 is 2Order of operations!A number added to its opposite is zero!
46 Evaluate the expression for a = -2, b = 3, and c = - 4. 1st plug in the numbersNext, do what is inside the ( ) first!The opposite of – 1 is…
47 Evaluate the expression for a = 3, b = -2, and c = 2.5. b plus c plus twice a1st you have to write an algebraic expressionNext you plug in the numbersRemember order of operations! Multiply 1st!Add from left to right
48 In Algebra 1, you are introduced to a matrix In Algebra 1, you are introduced to a matrix. The plural of matrix is matrices.All we do in Algebra 1 is sort information using a matrix. We also add and subtract matrices. You will learn how to use matrices in many ways in Algebra 2.A matrix is an organization of numbers in rows and columns.Examples:1 and 2 are elements in row 1- 1 and 4 are elements in column 1Columns go up and downRows go across
49 You can only add or subtract matrices if they are the same size You can only add or subtract matrices if they are the same size. They must have the same numbers of rows as each other. The must also have the same numbers of columns.Cannot be added together. They are not the same size!
50 We add two matrices by adding the corresponding elements. 1st we add corresponding elementsThen we follow the rules for adding numbers
51 Now you try… Add the matrices, if possible. Not possible. The matrices have different dimensions.Add corresponding elements!
52 Subtracting Real Numbers To subtract two numbers, we simply change it to an addition problem and follow the addition rules.Example: Simplify the expression.Change the subtraction sign to addition.Change the sign of the 5 to negative.Add using rule 2 of addition
53 Let's try another Example: Simplify the expression. 1st change the subtraction sign to a +.2nd change the sign of the -9 to a +.We do not mess with the - 4Then follow your addition rule #2
54 Let's try another Example: Simplify the expression. Add the opposite… Change the – to a +, then change the sign of the 2 to a negative.On this one, we use rule #1 of addition.
56 Let's try another Simplify each expression. Treat absolute value signs like parentheses. Do what is inside first!
57 Let's try another Evaluate – a – b for a = - 3 and b = - 5. 1st substitute the values in for a and b2nd simplify change subtraction to additionWhen you have two negatives next to each other, it becomes a positive
58 Now you try…Evaluate each expression for a = - 2, b = 3.5, and c = - 4
59 Subtract matrices just like you add them Subtract matrices just like you add them. Add the opposite of each element.Remember, they must be the same size!
60 Multiplying and Dividing Real Numbers Identity property of multiplication:Multiply any number by 1 and get the same number.Examples:Multiplication property of zero:Multiply any number by 0 and get 0.Examples:
61 Multiplication property of –1: Multiply any number by –1 and get the number’s opposite.Examples:Multiplication Rules:Multiply two numbers with the same sign, get a positiveMultiply two numbers with different signs, get a negativeExamples:
63 Examples: Simplify each expression. Since the –5 is in the ( ), the –5 is squared.The negative is not being squared here, only the 5.
64 Division Rules are the same as multiplication: Divide two numbers with the same sign, get a positive.Divide two numbers with different signs, get a negative.Examples: Simplify each expression.
65 Zero is a very special number! **Remember, anything multiplied by zero gives you zero.You also get zero when you divide zero by any number.Examples:However, you cannot divide by zero! You get undefined!Examples:
66 Every number except zero has a multiplicative inverse, or reciprocal. When you multiply a number by its reciprocal, you always get 1.Examples:The reciprocal of isThe reciprocal of isThe reciprocal of is
67 The Distributive Property The Distributive Property is used to multiply a number by something in parentheses being added or subtracted.We “distribute” the 5 to everything in parentheses.Everything in parentheses gets multiplied by 5.
69 More examples...Example 4Rewrite with the in front of the ( ).
70 POLYNOMIALSEach of these is called a term. Terms are connected by pluses and minusesThe number in front of the variable is called a coefficientA number without a variable is called a constant
71 Terms that have the same variable are called like terms These terms do not have a variable. They are both constants. They are like termsWe combine like terms by adding their coefficients.The above simplifies to
72 What are like terms? How do you combine like terms? Combine the coefficients…-9 and -3What are like terms? How do you combine like terms?Combine the coefficients…9, 2, and -5
74 Properties of Real Numbers Addition Properties:Commutative Property a + b = b + aExample: = 3 + 7(Think of a commute as back and forth from school to home and back. It is the same both ways!Associative Property (a + b) + c = a + (b + c)Example: (6 + 4) + 5 = 6 + (4 + 5)(Think of who you associate with or who is in your group)
75 Multiplication Properties: Commutative Property a · b = b · aExample: 3 · 7 = 7 · 3(Again, think of the commute from home to school and back)Associative Property (a · b) · c = a · (b · c)Example: (6 · 4) · 3 = 6 · (4 · 3)(Again, think of grouping)Both the commutative and associative properties apply only to addition and multiplication. Order and grouping do not matter with these two operations.
76 Other important properties… Identity Property of Addition a + 0 = aExample: = 5(If you add zero to any number, the number stays the same)Identity Property of Multiplication a · 1 = aExample: 7·1 = 7(If you multiply any number by one, the number stays the same)
77 Still more important properties… Inverse Property of Addition Example: 5 + (- 5) = 0(If you add a number to its opposite, you get zero!)Inverse Property of Multiplication Example:(If you multiply a number and its reciprocal, you get one!)
78 More Properties…Distributive Property a(b + c) = ab + aca(b – c) = ab – acMultiplication Property of Zero n · 0 = 0Multiplication Property of – 1 - 1 · n = - n
