### Eureka Math Grade 7 Module 3 Lesson 4 Example Answer Key

Example 1.

Answer:

→ What is happening when you factor and write equivalent expressions for parts (e), (f), (g), and (h)?

→ In the same way that dividing is the opposite or inverse operation of multiplying, factoring is the opposite of expanding.

→ What are the terms being divided by?

→ They are being divided by a common factor.

Have students write an expression that is equivalent to 8x+4.

→ Would it be incorrect to factor out a 2 instead of a 4?

Example 2

Let the variables x and y stand for positive integers, and let 2x, 12y, and 8 represent the area of three regions in the array. Determine the length and width of each rectangle if the width is the same for each rectangle.

Answer:

→ What does 2x represent in the first region of the array?

→ The region has an area of 2x or can be covered by 2x square units.

→ What does the entire array represent?

→ The entire array represents 2x+12y+8 square units.

→ What is the common factor of 2x, 12y, and 8?

→ The common factor of 2x, 12y, and 8 is 2.

→ What are the missing values, and how do you know?

→ The missing values are x, 6y, and 4. If the products are given in the area of the regions, divide the regions by 2 to determine the missing values.

Example 3.

A new miniature golf and arcade opened up in town. For convenient ordering, a play package is available to purchase. It includes two rounds of golf and 20 arcade tokens, plus $3.00 off the regular price. There is a group of six friends purchasing this package. Let g represent the cost of a round of golf, and let t represent the cost of a token. Write two different expressions that represent the total amount this group spent. Explain how each expression describes the situation in a different way.

Answer:

→ What two equivalent expressions could be used to represent the situation?

→ 6(2g+20t-3)

Each person will pay for two rounds of golf and 20 tokens and will be discounted $3.00. This expression is six times the quantity of each friend’s cost.

→ 12g+120t-18

The total cost is equal to 12 games of golf plus 120 tokens, minus $18.00 off the entire bill.

→ What does it mean to take the opposite of a number?

→ You can determine the additive inverse of a number or a multiplicative inverse.

→ What is the opposite of 2?

→ -2

→ What is (-1)(2)?

→ -2

→ What is (-1)(n)?

→ -n

→ What are two mathematical expressions that represent the opposite of (2a+3b)?

→ (-1)(2a+3b) or -(2a+3b)

→ Use the distributive property to write (-1)(2a+3b) as an equivalent expression.

→ -2a-3b or -2a+(-3b)

→ To go from -2a-3b to -(2a+3b), what process occurs?

→ The terms -2a and -3b are written as (-1)(2a) and (-1)(3b), and the -1 is factored out of their sum.

→ To go from -2a-3b to -(2a+3b), what process occurs?

→ The terms -2a and -3b are written as (-1)(2a) and (-1)(3b), and the -1 is factored out of their sum.

Example 5

Rewrite 5a-(a-3b) in standard form. Justify each step, applying the rules for subtracting and the distributive property.

Answer:

5a+(-(a+-3b)) Subtraction as adding the inverse

5a+(-1)(a+-3b) The opposite of a number is the same as multiplying by –1.

5a+(-1)(a)+(-1)(-3b) Distributive property

5a+-a+3b Multiplying by -1 is the same as the opposite of the number.

4a+3b Collect like terms

Exercise 3.

For each expression, write each sum as a product of two factors. Emphasize the importance of the distributive property. Use various equivalent expressions to justify equivalency.

a. 2∙3+5∙3

Both have a common factor of 3, so the two factors would be 3(2+5). Demonstrate that 3(7) is equivalent to 6+15, or 21.

b. (2+5)+(2+5)+(2+5)

Answer:

This expression is 3 groups of (2+5) or 3(2)+3(5), which is 3(2+5).

c. 2∙2+(5+2)+(5∙2)

Answer:

Rewrite the expression as

2∙2+(5∙2)+(2+5), so 2(2+5)+(2+5), which equals 3(2+5).

d. x∙3+5∙3

Answer:

The greatest common factor is 3, so factor out the 3:

e. 3(x+5). (x+5)+(x+5)+(x+5)

Answer:

Similar to part (b), this is 3 groups of (x+5), so

f. 3(x+5). 2x+(5+x)+5∙2

Answer:

Combine like terms and then identify the common factor. 3x+15, where 3 is the common factor: 3(x+5). Or,

2x+2∙5+(x+5), so that 2(x+5)+(x+5)=3(x+5). Or, use the associative property and write:

2x+(5∙2)+(5+x)

2(x+5)+(5+x)

3(x+5).

g. x∙3+y∙3

Answer:

The greatest common factor is 3, so 3(x+y). (x+y)+(x+y)+(x+y)

There are 3 groups of

h. (x + y) + (x+ y) + (x+y)

Answer:

There are 3 groups of (x+y), so 3(x+y)

i. 2x + (y + x) + 2y

Answer:

Combine like terms and then identify the common factor. 3x+3y, where 3 is the common factor. 3(x+y). Or,

2x+2y+(x+y), so that 2(x+y)+(x+y) is equivalent to 3(x+y). Or, use the associative property, and write:

2x+2y+(y+x)

2(x+y)+(x+y)

3(x+y).
