EXAMPLE 3 Use a verbal model to solve a problem Craft Fair You are selling homemade candles at a craft fair for \$ 3 each. You spend \$ 120 to rent the booth and buy materials for the candles. Write an expression that shows your profit from selling c candles. Find your profit if you sell 75 candles.

EXAMPLE 3 Use a verbal model to solve a problem SOLUTION STEP 1Write: a verbal model. Then write an algebraic expression. Use the fact that profit is the difference between income and expenses. – An expression that shows your profit is 3c – 120. 3 c – 120

EXAMPLE 3 Use a verbal model to solve a problem STEP 2 Evaluate: the expression in Step 1 when c = 75. 3c – 120 = 3(75) – 120 Substitute 75 for c. = 225 – 120 = 105 Subtract. ANSWER Your profit is \$ 105. Multiply.

EXAMPLE 4 Simplify by combining like terms a. 8x + 3x = (8 + 3)x Distributive property = 11x Add coefficients. b. 5p 2 + p – 2p 2 = (5p 2 – 2p 2 ) + p Group like terms. = 3p 2 + p Combine like terms. c. 3(y + 2) – 4(y – 7)= 3y + 6 – 4y + 28 Distributive property = (3y – 4y) + (6 + 28) Group like terms. = –y + 34 Combine like terms.

EXAMPLE 4 Simplify by combining like terms d. 2x – 3y – 9x + y = (2x – 9x) + (– 3y + y) Group like terms. = –7x – 2y Combine like terms.

EXAMPLE 5 Simplify a mathematical model Digital Photo Printing You send 15 digital images to a printing service that charges \$. 80 per print in large format and \$.20 per print in small format. Write and simplify an expression that represents the total cost if n of the 15 prints are in large format. Then find the total cost if 5 of the 15 prints are in large format.

SOLUTION EXAMPLE 5 Simplify a mathematical model Write a verbal model. Then write an algebraic expression. An expression for the total cost is 0.8n + 0.2(15 – n). 0.8n + 0.2(15 – n) Distributive property. = (0.8n – 0.2n) + 3 Group like terms. = 0.8n + 3 – 0.2n

EXAMPLE 5 Simplify a mathematical model = 0.6n + 3 Combine like terms. ANSWER When n = 5, the total cost is 0.6(5) + 3 = 3 + 3 = \$ 6.

EXAMPLE 1 Solve an equation with a variable on one side Solve 4 5 x + 8 = 20. 4 5 x + 8 = 20 4 5 x = 12 x = (12) 5 4 x = 15 Write original equation. Subtract 8 from each side. Multiply each side by, the reciprocal of. 5 44 5 Simplify. ANSWER The solution is 15. CHECK x = 15 in the original equation. 4 5 4 5 x + 8 = (15) + 8 = 12 + 8 = 20 
