ANSWER:

1.
1 -2x + 5 + 10x - 9 : given = (10x - 2x) + (5 - 9) : put like terms
together = 8x - 4 : group
2 3(x + 7) + 2(-x + 4) + 5x : given = 3x + 21 - 2x + 8 + 5x : expand =
(3x - 2x + 5x) + (21 + 8) : put like terms together = 6x + 29 : group
2.
1 (2x - 6) / 2 : given = 2(x - 3) / 2 : factor 2 in numerator = x - 3 :
divide numerator and denominator by 2 to simplify
2 (-x - 2) / (x + 2) : given = -1(x + 2) / (x + 2) : factor -1 in numerator =
-1 : divide numerator and denominator by x + 2 to simplify
3 (5x - 5)/10 : given = 5(x - 1) / 10 : factor 5 in numerator = (x - 1) / 2 :
divide numerator and denominator by 5 to simplify
3.
1 -x = 6 : given x = -6 : multiply both sides of the equation by -1
2 2x - 8 = -x + 4 : given 2x - 8 + 8 = -x + 4 + 8 : add +8 to both sides
of the equation 2x = -x + 12 : group like terms 2x + x = -x + 12 + x :
add +x to both sides 3x = 12 : group like terms x = 4 : multiply both
sides by 1/3

3 2x + 1/2 = 2/3 : given 2x + 1/2 - 1/2 = 2/3 - 1/2 : subtract 1/2 from
both sides 2x = 1/6 : group like terms x = 1/12 : multiply both sides
by 1/2
4 x/3 + 2 = 5 : given x/3 + 2 - 2 = 5 - 2 : subtract 2 from both sides x/3
= 3 : group like terms x = 9 : multiply both sides by 1/2
5 -5/x = 2 : given -5 = 2x : multiply both sides by x and simplify -5/2 =
x : : multiply both sides by 1/2
4.
1 x2 - y2 , x = 4 , y = 5 : given 42 - 52 : substitute x and y by the given
values =16 - 25 = -9
2 |4x - 2y| , x = -2 , y = 3 : given |4(-2) - 2(3)| : substitute x and y by
the given values = |-14| = 14 : evaluate
3 3x3 - 4y4 , x = -1 , y = -2 : given 3(-1)3 - 4(-2)4 : substitute x and y by
the given values = -3 - 64 = -67 : evaluate
5.
1 x + 6 < 0 : given x + 6 - 6 < -6 : subtract 6 from both sides x < -6 :
group like terms
2 x + 1 > 5 : given x + 1 - 1 > 5 - 1 : subtract 1 from both sides x > 4 :
group like terms
3 2(x - 2) < 12 : given x - 2 < 6 : multiply both sides by 1/2 x - 2 + 2 <
6 + 2 : add 2 to both sides x < 8 : group like terms
6.
1 (-1) a = 1 : definition: a is the reciprocal of -1 a = 1/-1 = -1 : solve for
a; -1 is the reciprocal of -1
2 (0) b = 1 : definition: b is the reciprocal of 0 b = undefined : no value
of b satisfies the above equation
3 (3/4) c = 1 : definition: c is the reciprocal of 3/4 c = 4/3 : solve for c;
c = 4/3 is the reciprocal of 3/4
4 (2 5/7) d = 1 : definition: d is the reciprocal of 2 5/7. (19/7) d = 1 :
convert the mixed number 2 5/7 into a fraction. d = 7/19 : : solve for
d; d = 7/19 is the reciprocal of 2(5/7)
5 0.02 d = 1 : definition: d is the reciprocal of 0.02. d = 1/0.02 : solve
for d; d = 50 is the reciprocal of 0.02
7.
1 3 3/4 + 6 1/7 : given = (3 + 6) + (3/4 + 1/7) : put the whole parts
together and the fractional parts together. = 9 + (21/28 + 4/28) :
add. = 9 25/28
2 (1 3/5) * (3 1/3) - 2 1/2 : given = (8/5) * (10/3) - 2 1/2 : convert mixed
numbers to multiply into fractions. = 80/15 - 2 1/2 = 5 1/3 - 2 1/2 = 4
4/3 - 2 1/2: multiply and write as mixed number if possible = (4 - 2)
+ (4/3 - 1/2) : subtract = 2 5/6
3 (5 2/3) / (4 1/5) : given = (17/3) / (21/5) : convert mixed numbers to
fractions. = 85 / 63 : divide fractions = 1 22/63 : write as mixed
number
4 (3 4/7 - 1 1/2) / (2 3/8 + 2 1/4) : given = [(3 - 1) + (4/7 - 1/2)] / [(2 +
2) + (3/8 + 1/4)]: evaluate numerator and denominator as fractions.

= (2 1/14) / (4 5/8) = (29/14) / (37/8) = 116/259
