Give an example of both an expression and an equation.</span> <span style="color: rgb(204, 102, 0);"><br /><br />An Algebraic expression is when you combine numbers, operatives, and/or free variables and bound variables. You get to choose the variable in an algebraic expression. An example: 5A X 6.</span> <span style="color: rgb(204, 102, 0);">In Algebraic equation, the variable is already given. There are two types of equations (from my knowledge), one step; 3E - 6 = 9, and two step; 3N = 1N +10. An example of an equation; 3H - 5 = 10. H = 5.</span><br /><br /><span style="color: rgb(102, 0, 204); font-style: italic; font-weight: bold;">Question 2: What is a variable and why do we use one in algebra?</span> <span style="color: rgb(102, 0, 204);"><br /><br /><br />Variables are letters that represent the unknown, able to change. Variables are often contrasted with constants, which are known and unchangning.</span> <span style="color: rgb(102, 0, 204);">We use variables because Algebra is a method of finding the unknown.</span><br /><span style="color: rgb(51, 204, 0);"><span style="font-style: italic; font-weight: bold;"><br /><br />Question 3: Solve for N</span><br /></span><span style="color: rgb(51, 204, 0);"><a onblur="try {parent.deselectBloggerImageGracefully();} catch(e) {}" href="http://photos1.blogger.com/blogger/1831/2100/1600/GrowingPost4%282%29.0.jpg"><img style="cursor: pointer;" src="http://photos1.blogger.com/blogger/1831/2100/320/GrowingPost4%282%29.0.jpg" alt="" border="0" /></a><br /></span><span style="color: rgb(51, 204, 0);">To solve the first question, you need to figure out what a triangle equals on the first scale.</span> <span style="color: rgb(51, 204, 0);">First, take away four circles (each square equals two circles), which leaves five circles. Since there were five circles left, the triangle equals five circles.</span> <span style="color: rgb(51, 204, 0);"><br />To solve the second question, you need to figure out the value of the two N's.</span> <span style="color: rgb(51, 204, 0);">First, add the squares and triangles together.

Give an example of both an expression and an equation.<br /><br />An <span style="color:#ff0000;"><strong>algebraic expression</strong></span> is when you combine <span style="color:#33cc00;">numbers,</span> <span style="color:#3333ff;">operatives,</span> <span style="color:#ff99ff;">grouping symbols</span> (such as brackets and parentheses) and/or<span style="color:#993399;"> free variables</span> and<span style="color:#ff6600;"> bound variables. </span><span style="color:#000000;">You get to choose the variable in an </span><span style="color:#ff0000;"><strong>algebraic expression.</strong></span> An example of an <span style="color:#ff0000;"><strong>algebraic expression</strong></span> is 20J / 5. In an <span style="color:#3333ff;"><strong>algebraic equation</strong> <span style="color:#000000;">is when you combine</span> <span style="color:#33cc00;">numbers,</span><strong> </strong>operatives,<span style="color:#ff99ff;"><strong> grouping symbols </strong></span><span style="color:#000000;">(such as brakets and parentheses)</span><strong> </strong><span style="color:#000000;">and/or</span><strong> </strong><span style="color:#cc66cc;">free variables</span> <span style="color:#000000;">and</span><strong> </strong><span style="color:#ff6600;">bouund variables.</span></span> In an equation the value of the variable is given. A example for an <strong><span style="color:#3333ff;">algebraic equation</span></strong> is 20J / 5 = 20. J equals 5.<br /><br /><span style="color:#000099;"><strong>Question 2:</strong></span> What is a variable and why do we use one in algebra?<br /><br />A <span style="color:#ff6600;"><strong>variable</strong></span> is a letter that replaces a number we are solving for. The variable stands for the <span style="color:#ff0000;"><strong>unknown.</strong> <span style="color:#000000;">We use a <strong><span style="color:#ff9900;">variable</span></strong> (a letter) in algebra so the equations we are solving do not become confusing. Example is we use numbers as <strong><span style="color:#ff6600;">variables</span></strong> instead of letters.</span></span><br />21 + 13 = 17 This equation doesn't make sense. Now here's the same equation except we use letters for the variable. 2A + 13 = 17. A eaquals 2. You multiply 2 by A which is 2. 2 x 2= 4. Your final equation would be 4 + 13 = 17.<br /><br /><span style="color:#3333ff;"><strong>Question 3:</strong></span> Solve for N.<br /><br /><a href="http://photos1.blogger.com/blogger/5982/2100/1600/untitled.4.jpg"><img style="CURSOR: hand" alt="" src="http://photos1.blogger.com/blogger/5982/2100/320/untitled.4.jpg" border="0" /></a><br /><br />I found that since 2 circles equals 1 square and a circle equals one, that a square equals 2. To solve the second question you need to figure out what a triangle equals on the first scale. I took away four circles (each square equals two circles), and it left me with five circles. Since there were five circles left the triangle equals five circles each. Then I needed to solve the N's. If each square equals 2 and each triangle equals f circles each which is 10. I added it up and got 22. that means you now have to divide 22 in half and you'd get 11. So N eqauls 11.<br /><br /><strong><span style="color:#33ccff;">Question 4:</span></strong> Solve the following equations.

She is trying to figure out how many pizzas she has to order. She knows that each pizza has six slices of pizza.</em></strong><br /><br />A)If there is four people coming to the party then she will need 2 pizzas all together. Which count as 12 slices.<br /><br />If the two people come and show up at the party then Jackie should order one more pizza to make three pizzas. Jackie should order 3 pizzas because look at the chart, and you will find 6 people and altogether will have 18 slices. Then you will divide and get the answer of 3 pizzas in total.<br /><br /><strong>Question #3: Answer the questions below based upon this informationKathy has $20 in her savings account.

In this case, the answer would be 1380 because you take 12 - 8 = 4. Then you take 4 (which are the years he has until he turns 12) and you times it by 12 (which is the total months in a year) and you will get 48, then if you use 48 as the variation (n), and you do the algebraic formula, you will get 1380 as your answer.</span><br /><span style="color:#993399;"></span><br /><span style="color:#ffcccc;">Question #2: Use the chart to figure out the questions below.</span><br /><br /><a href="http://photos1.blogger.com/blogger/1619/2126/1600/pic.jpg"><img style="FLOAT: left; MARGIN: 0px 10px 10px 0px; CURSOR: hand" alt="" src="http://photos1.blogger.com/blogger/1619/2126/320/pic.jpg" border="0" /></a><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><span style="color:#009900;">Jackie is planning on having a pizza party with some of her friends.

I got that answer by using Kathy's formula which is 20 + 15n (n = 12). I multiplied 15 by 12 (which are the months in a year) and I got 180. After that, I added 20 to 180 and got $200. </span><br /><span style="color:#cc33cc;"></span><br /><span style="color:#ff99ff;">b) Suppose Kathy counted wrong and she really has $25 in her account instead of $20.

Jack has 180 baseball cards in his collection. At the end of each month Jack buys 25 baseball cards to add to his collection. </span><br /><br /><span style="color:#000099;">a)Create a T-Chart showing how many baseball cards Jack has at the end of the next 4 months.</span><br /><span style="color:#000099;"></span><br /><span style="color:#330033;">Jack will have a total of 280 cards at the end of the next 4 months.</span><br /><span style="color:#000099;"></span><br /><span style="color:#000099;"><a href="http://photos1.blogger.com/blogger/6539/2099/1600/t-chart%20for%20first%20question.jpg"><img style="CURSOR: hand" alt="" src="http://photos1.blogger.com/blogger/6539/2099/320/t-chart%20for%20first%20question.jpg" border="0" /></a><br />b)Create an algebraic formula based upon the problem above</span><br /><br />An algebraic formula that can be used for the problem above is:<br /><br /><span style="font-size:180%;">180+25(m)=#of cards</span><br /><br />example: <span style="font-size:180%;">180+25(4)=280 cards</span><br /><br /><p>I started off with multiplying the number of months which is 4 by 25 the number of cards he buys after each month then adding his remaing 180 cards to get a total of 280 cards by then end of the next 4 months.</p><br /><span style="color:#000099;">c)If Jack just turned 8 years old this month and Jack continues to buy the same amount of baseball cards each month, how many baseball cards will jack have when he turns 12?</span><br /><br />Jack will have a total of 1380 cards by the the time he turns 12.<br /><br />I got the answer by first figuring out the difference between 8 and 12 which is 4. So i multiplied 4 by 12 to give me 48 because there are 48 months in 4 years. Then I used the algebraic formula, 180+25(48). All I did was change the variable. So then I multiplied 48 bye 25 to get me 1200, then I added the remaining 180 to get 1380 cards.<br /><br /><br /><strong>Question #2: Use the chart to figure out the questions below.</strong><a onblur="try {parent.deselectBloggerImageGracefully();} catch(e) {}" href="http://photos1.blogger.com/blogger/2273/1894/1600/Graph%20-%20Growing%20Post.0.gif"></a><br /><br /><span style="color:#006600;">Jackie is planning on having a pizza party with some of her friends. She is trying to figure out how many pizza’s to order. She knows that each pizza has six slices of pizza.<br /></span><br /><a href="http://photos1.blogger.com/blogger/6539/2099/1600/pizza%20graph.png"><img style="CURSOR: hand" alt="" src="http://photos1.blogger.com/blogger/6539/2099/320/pizza%20graph.png" border="0" /></a><br /><span style="color:#000099;">a)If Jackie thinks that there will be four people at the party (counting herself) how many pizza’s should she order?</span><br /><br />Jackie should order a total of 2 pizzas. She should order 2 pizzas because if you look at the chart and find 4 people it says that there will be 12 slices and if there are 6 slices in each pizza I divide 12 by 6 and that gives me 2 whole pizzas.<br /><span style="color:#000099;"></span><br /><span style="color:#000099;">b)If two more people show up at the party how many more pizza’s does she need to order?<br /></span><br /><strong><span style="color:#000099;"></span></strong>If two more people show up at the party Jackie should order 1 more pizza making a total of 3 pizzas all together. She should order 3 pizzas in total becuase if you look at the chart and find 6 people there will be 18 slices. So divide 18 slices by 6 to get a total of 3 pizzas.<br /><strong></strong><br /><strong>Question #3: Answer the questions below based upon this information</strong><br /><br /><span style="color:#006600;">Kathy has $20 in her savings account. Each month she adds another $15 to her savings account. In order to calculate how much money she will have in one year Kathy has created this algebraic formula: 20 + 15n = Savings amount<br /></span><br /><span style="color:#333399;">a) Calculate how much money Kathy will have in one year </span><br /><p><span style="color:#333399;"><span style="color:#000000;">Cathy will have $200.00 dollars in her saving account. I got that answer by taking her formula of 20+15(12). First I mulitplied 12 by 15 to get 180 then i added her $20.00 dollars to get $200.00 dollars in total. </span></p></span><span style="color:#333399;">b) Suppose Kathy counted wrong and she really has $25 in her account instead of $20. Change the algebraic formula to reflect this miscalculation. </span><br /></span><span style="color:#000000;"></span><br />If Cathy made a mistake and she had actually had $25.00 dollars instead of $20.00 the formula would now be:<br /><br /><span style="font-size:130%;">25+15n=savings account</span><br /><br />Then Cathy would have a total of $205.00 dollars for that 1 year.<br /><br /><strong>Question #4: Solve the following <em>equations</em>.

She <span style="color:#ff0000;">starts off with $30.00</span> in her account. At the end of <span style="color:#cc33cc;">each month she deposits $18.00</span>. How much will she have <span style="color:#006600;">after 1 year</span>?</span><br /><br />To solve this problem we must first know how much she starts off with( $30.00) thenn how much she puts in each month(<span style="color:#993399;">$18.00</span>)and finally how long will she be putting money in her bank account( <span style="color:#006600;">1 year</span>)<br /><br /><br />We start off by creating an algebraic formula:<br /><a href="http://photos1.blogger.com/blogger/6539/2099/1600/formula.jpg"><img style="CURSOR: hand" alt="" src="http://photos1.blogger.com/blogger/6539/2099/320/formula.jpg" border="0" /></a><br /><a href="http://photos1.blogger.com/blogger/6539/2099/1600/jennifer.jpg"><img style="WIDTH: 377px; CURSOR: hand; HEIGHT: 90px" height="103" alt="" src="http://photos1.blogger.com/blogger/6539/2099/320/jennifer.jpg" width="395" border="0" /></a><br /><br /><span style="color:#cc9933;">to get the answer we multiply 12( 1 year) to 18(how much she is depositing) then we add the 30 dollars she has now to give us a total of $246.00 in her bank account.<br /></span><br /><span style="color:#006600;">for people who do not know what a variable is it is a unknown quantity.</span><br /><br /><br /><span style="color:#cc0000;">Then after we did the back of the worksheet Mr.Reece gave to us which said "pattern graFun" at the top.<br /><br />One of the questions that was on the sheet was this question. It asks you to make an algebraic formula, draw the next shape and graph the information.<br /><br /></span><a href="http://photos1.blogger.com/blogger/6539/2099/1600/graphs.jpg"><img style="WIDTH: 408px; CURSOR: hand; HEIGHT: 183px" height="149" alt="" src="http://photos1.blogger.com/blogger/6539/2099/320/graphs.jpg" width="350" border="0" /></a><br /><br />The question is:<br /><br /><strong>Tile Pattern. Draw the next two figures in the pattern of tiles shown above. Show how the number of gray tiles varies with the number of white tiles.</strong><br /><br /><span style="color:#339999;">The two next figures have been already done for you. The tiles start off with a 3 by 3 box meaning that it has 9 tiles. The middle tile is white(1) then the rest are gray(8). The next box is now a 4 by 3 square which means that it now has 12 tiles. The two middle tiles are white and the remaining 10 tiles are gray. In this pattern the top and bottom rows increase by one starting off with 3. Then the white tiles increase by 1 starting from 1. Then we created a t-chart to show what found out. After, we graphed our information.</span><br /><br /><strong>How many gray tiles would be needed for 10 white tiles.</strong><br /><br /><span style="color:#999900;">There will be 32 gray tiles in the tenth figure. There will be 32 because in the figure that has 5 white tiles has 16 gray tiles. So if the figure with the 10 white squares is double the one with the 5 white tiles it will then has 32 gray tiles.</span><br /><span style="color:#999900;"></span><br /><span style="color:#999900;">This worksheet containing 3 different questions will be due tomorrow, may19th/06, 4th period</span><br /><span style="color:#999900;"></span><br /><span style="color:#999900;">After we completed that we started another worksheet that had the same kind of questions on it. That worksheet will be due at the same time as the other worksheet.</span><br /><span style="color:#999900;"></span><br /> <span style="color:#993399;">We have also started something new in class. We have started something called the growing post. The growing post is worth at least 30% of your grade. The growing post is sheets of paper with different question having to do with what we have been learing in class. The will be assigned ever monday and due the next monday.
