Today in class we looked over a few questions from our past homework. I'm going to show the questions we went over.

Pg 43.

sentence: The number is -84.
Let N = number

n/-7 - 2=10
+2 +2
n/-7 = 12(-7)
n=-84
n/-7 - 2=10
-84/-7 -2=10
12-2=10
10=10

Pg 46.

sentence: The width of the field is 36 yds.
Let N= Width
2n+3=75
-3 -3
2n/2=72/2
n=36
2n+3=75
2(26)+3=75
72=3=75
75=75

Later on, we got assigned to do page 47 and 48. We had to pick 5 questions from page 47. Since both pages are the same you do the 5 that you didn't pick on page 47 ,on page 48, if that makes any sense. Here are four questions that I picked.

1) Mr. Enigma is 68 years old.
Let N= Years of age
1/4n -5=12
n/4 -5=12
+5 +5
(4)n/4=17(4)
n=68
n/4 -5=12
68/4 -5=12
17 -5=12
12=12

2) You must work 13 hrs.
Let N= hours
7n+40=131
-40 -40
7n/7= 91/7
n=13
7n+40=131
7(13)+4o=131
91=40=131
131=131

3) She rented 28 movies.
Let N= movies
3n+15=99
-15 -15
3n/3=84/3
n=28
3n+15=99
3(28)+15=99
84+15=99
99=99

4) There was 2.5 hours of labour required.
Let N= Hours
140+48n=260
-140 -140
48n/48=120/48
n=2.5
140+48n=260
140+48(2.5)=260
140+120=260
260=260

For tomorrows scribe I pick Kristin. Well that's my scribe, I hope you enjoyed.
* REMEMBER THAT PROBLEM SOLVING IS ON THE TEST!

Good job Simran! Your scribe was spectacular. I liked how you used ALOT of examples. It was very colourful, big, and clear! I think the only thing that you should do is add a video. Then your scribe will be even BETTER! GREAT JOB!
