Answers

1. Answer :

= 7(5.8 + 1.2)

Add within parentheses.

= 7(7)

Multiply. 

= 49

2. Answer :

= 6(5 - 1.5)

Subtract within parentheses.

= 6(3.5)

Multiply. 

= 21

3. Answer :

= (16 + 2)/(11 - 5)

Rewrite fraction as division.

= (16 + 2) ÷ (11 - 5)

Evaluate within parentheses.

= 18 ÷ 6

Divide. 

= 3

4. Answer :

= 3  [12 + (9 - 4)]

Subtract within parentheses.

= 3  [12 + 5]

Add within brackets.

= 3  17

Multiply.  

= 51

5. Answer :

= 3.75(24 ÷ 6)

Divide within parentheses.

= 3.75(4)

Multiply.

= 15

6. Answer :

= (56 ÷ 8) + 5 ⋅ (4 + 2) ÷ 10

Evaluate within parentheses.

= 7 + 5 ⋅ (4 + 2) ÷ 10

= 7 + 5 ⋅ 6 ÷ 10

= 7 + 30 ÷ 10

= 7 + 3

= 10

7. Answer :

= [(44 - 2) ÷ (22 + 3)]  3 - 7

Evaluate within parentheses.

= [42 ÷ (22 + 3)]  3 - 7

= [42 ÷ (4 + 3)]  3 - 7

= [42 ÷ 7]  3 - 7

Divide within brackets.

= 6  3 - 7

Multiply.

= 18 - 7

Subtract.

= 11

8. Answer :

= 7(2x + y)

Substitute x = 3 and y = 1.

= 7(2 ⋅ 3 + 1)

Evaluate within parentheses.

= 7(6 + 1)

Add within parentheses.

= 7(7)

Multiply.  

= 49

9. Answer :

= 3(y - x)2

Substitute x = 7 and y = 5.

= 3(5 - 7)2

Subtract within parentheses.

= 3(-2)2

Evaluate power.

= 3(4)

Multiply.  

= 12

10. Answer :

= 5(p2 + q2)

Substitute p = -2 and q = 3.

= 5[(-2)2 + 33]

Evaluate powers within brackets.

= 5[4 + 27]

Add within brackets.

= 5 ⋅ 31

Multiply. 

= 155

11. Answer :

2a- 8(b2 + c) ÷ a + (ab + c)

Substitute a = 4, b = 3 and c = 4.

= 2(43- 8(32 + 4) ÷ 4 + (4 ⋅ 3 + 4)

Evaluate within parentheses.

= 2(64) - 8(9 + 4) ÷ 4 + (12 + 4)

= 132 - 8(13) ÷ 4 + 16

Multiply.

= 132 - 104 ÷ 4 + 16

= 132 - 26 + 16

Subtract.

= 106 + 16

Add.

= 122

12. Answer :

Use the order of operations to approximate the total number of plants described above

Write and evaluate the expression.

= 50 ⋅ 1500 + 7 ⋅ 64000 + 6 ⋅ 105000 + 200000

Multiply.

= 75,000 + 448,000 + 630,000 + 200,000

Add.

= 1,353,000

There are approximately 1,353,000 plants in the flag.

13. Answer :

Read and Understand :

One pattern plus fabric and buttons are bought to make pillows. You have to find the total cost.

Make a Plan :

Write a verbal model. 

Total cost

=

Cost of pattern

+

Number of pillows

x

Cost of each pillow

Solve the Problem :

Write and evaluate the expression.

Substitute values into verbal model.

Total cost :

= 6 + 2(4.25 + 0.80)

= 6 + 2(5.05)

= 6 + 10.10

= 16.10

The total cost is $16.10.

Look Back :

Use estimation to check that the answer is reasonable.  The cost of material for each pillow is about

$4 + $1 = $5

The total cost is about

$6 + 2($5) = $16

The answer is reasonable.
