1 This assignment will help you to prepare for Algebra 1 by reviewing some of the things you learned in Middle School. If you cannot remember how to complete a specific problem, there is an example at the top of each page. If additional assistance is needed, please use the following websites: This assignment will be due the first day of school. NAME:

2 Fractions: Reducing To reduce a simple fraction, follow the following three steps: 1. Factor the numerator. 2. Factor the denominator. 3. Find the fraction mix that equals 1. Reduce First: Rewrite the fraction with the numerator and the denominator factored: Second: Find the fraction that equals 1. can be written x which in turn can be written x 1 which in turn can be written. Third: We have just illustrated that Although the left side of the equal sign does not look identical to the right side of the equal sign, both fractions are equivalent because they have the same value. Check it with your calculator and This proves that the fraction can be reduced to the equivalent fraction. Reduce: 1) 2) 3) 4) 5) ~ 1 ~

3 Operations with Fractions: Addition and Subtraction Two fractions can only be added or subtracted if they have the same denominator For example, it is possible to add 3 and 1 because both fractions have 5 as the denominator In this case, we simply add the numerators to find the answer: If fractions do not have the same denominator, you need to find equivalent fractions which do For example, it is not possible 3 1 without changing each fraction so that they have the same and to add 5 4 bottom number. We can use equivalent fractions to rewrite each fraction with 20 as the denominator: Now we can see that Add: and ) 11 1 / / 6 5) 2 4 / / 5 2) 10 1 / / 5 6) 1 2 / / 6 3) 1 1 / / 4 7) 6 1 / / 3 4) 11 4 / / 5 8) 9 5 / / 3 Subtract: 9) 13 1 / / 3 13) 3 3 / / 2 10) 13 4 / / 2 14) 4 4 / / 5 11) 18 4 / / 3 15) 2 5 / / 3 12) 11 1 / / 6 16) 10 1 / / 6 ~ 2 ~

4 Operations with Fractions: Multiplication There are 3 simple steps to multiply fractions 1. Multiply the top numbers (the numerators). 2. Multiply the bottom numbers (the denominators). 3. Simplify the fraction if needed Step 1. Multiply the top numbers: Step 2. Multiply the bottom numbers: Step 3. Simplify the fraction: ) 1 / 2 x 2 / 4 5) 4 / 6 x 3 / 5 2) 1 / 3 x 1 / 4 6) 2 / 3 x 5 / 6 3) 2 / 5 x 1 / 2 7) 1 / 2 x 1 / 4 4) 2 / 5 x 1 / 3 8) 5 / 6 x 3 / 6 ~ 3 ~

5 Operations with Fractions: Division There are 3 Steps to Divide Fractions: Step 1. Turn the second fraction (the one you want to divide by) upside-down (this is now a reciprocal). Step 2. Multiply the first fraction by that reciprocal Step 3. Simplify the fraction (if needed) Step 1. Turn the second fraction upside-down (it becomes a reciprocal): 1 6 becomes 6 1 Step 2. Multiply the first fraction by that reciprocal: Step 3. Simplify the fraction: ) 1 / 2 4 / 5 6) 1 / 4 2 / 6 2) 3 / 6 1 / 3 7) 2 / 4 1 / 2 3) 1 / 3 4 / 5 8) 4 / 5 1 / 6 4) 1 / 2 1 / 3 9) 1 / 3 2 / 4 5) 1 / 6 3 / 5 10) 1 / 2 3 / 4 ~ 4 ~

6 Ratio A ratio is a statement of how two numbers compare. We use ratios to make comparisons between two things. When we express ratios in words, we use the word "to" -- we say "the ratio of something to something else". Multiplying or dividing each term by the same nonzero number will give an equal ratio. For example, the ratio 2:4 is equal to the ratio 1:2. To tell if two ratios are equal, use a calculator and divide. If the division gives the same answer for both ratios, then they are equal. Write each ratio in simplest form to : : to to : to : Write five equivalent ratios for each ratio : to to : to :20 To convert units of measurement Write the conversion as a fraction (that equals one) Multiply it out (leaving all units in the answer) Cancel any units that are both top and bottom Example: What is 60 mph (miles per hour) in m/s (meters per second)? 60 mile 1609 m 1 h mile m h m/s h mile 3600 s 3600 h mile s Complete the unit conversions feet to yards pints to cups 3. 7 mins to secs pounds to ounces quarts to pints 6. 12,320 yards to miles 7. 16,000 pounds to tons cups to quarts yards to feet secs to mins hours to days days to years ~ 5 ~

7 Proportion A proportion is a name we give to a statement that two ratios are equal. It can be written in two ways: two equal fractions, using a colon, a:b c:d When two ratios are equal, then the cross products of the ratios are equal. That is, for the proportion, a:b c:d, a x d b x c Determine the missing value: p s y v p f z q 9. 4 h 1 2 State whether the ratios are proportional: ~ 6 ~

8 Percents Converting From Percent to Decimal Percent means "per 100" To convert from percent to decimal: divide by 100, and remove the "%" sign. (The easy way to divide by 100 is to move the decimal point 2 places to the left) Example #1 Percent To Decimal Answer 75% 0.75 Example #2 Convert 8.5% to decimal Move the decimal point two places to the left: 8.5 -> > Answer 8.5% Convert From Decimal to Percent To convert from decimal to percentage, just multiply the decimal by 100, but remember to put the "%" sign so people know it is per 100.(The easy way to multiply by 100 is to move the decimal point 2 places to the right.) Example #1 From Decimal To Percent Answer 0.125% 12.5% Example #2: Convert 0.65 to percent Move the decimal point two places to the right: > 6.5 -> 65. Answer % Write each percent as a decimal 1. 11% % % % 5. 70% 6. 89% % % % Write each decimal as a percent ~ 7 ~

9 Percents Convert Fractions to Percents Divide the top of the fraction by the bottom, multiply by 100 and add a "%" sign. Example: What is 5 / 8 as a percent? x % (remember to put the "%" so people know it is "per 100") Another Method Because percent means "per 100", you can try to convert the fraction Follow these steps: ~ 8 ~ to form. Step 1: Find a number you can multiply the bottom of the fraction by to get 100. Step 2: Multiply both top and bottom of the fraction by that number. Step 3. Then write down just the top number with the "%" sign. Example: Express as a Percent Step 1: We can multiply 4 by 25 to become 100 Step 2: Multiply top and bottom by 25: Step 3: Write down 75 with the percent sign: Convert Percents to Fractions Step 1: Write down the percent divided by 100. Step 2: If the percent is not a whole number, then multiply both top and bottom by 10 for every number after the decimal point. (For example, if there is one number after the decimal, then use 10, if there are two then use 100, etc.) Step 3: Simplify (or reduce) the fraction Example: Express 11% as a fraction 11% The percent is a whole number, so no need for step 2, and the fraction cannot be simplified further. Example: Express 75% as a fraction 75% The percent is a whole number, so no need for step 2, then simplify Write each percent as a fraction in simplest form 1. 74% % 3. 30% 4. 78% 5. 38% % 7. 52% 8. 20% 9. 80% Write each fraction as a percent

10 Percentages Percent of a Number To find the percent of a given number, convert the percent to a decimal and multiply. Example: 30 percent of 400 1) Change 30% to a decimal by moving the decimal point 2 places to the left. 30% ) Multiply 0.30 x Additional Examples: 100% of 58 -> 1.00 x (One hundred percent of a number is just the number itself.) 200% of 24 -> 2.00 x (Two hundred percent of a number is twice that number.) Solve: 1) 25% of 20 7) 56% of 25 2) 200% of 36 8) 35% of 100 3) 56.25% of 16 9) 75% of 8 4) 80% of 5 10) 10% of 54 5) 12.5% of 16 11) 100% of 23 6) 0.5% of 40 12) 94% of 50 The Proportion Method Since percent statements always involve three numbers, given any two of these numbers, we can find the third using the proportion above. Let's look at an example of this. In this method, we write a proportion: The percent is always over 100 because that s what percent means. The part over whole is the definition of a fraction. In this case, the number following of is the whole. The advantage to the proportion method is that converting to a decimal is not needed. (The division by 100 takes care of that.) Example: What number is 75% of 4? (or Find 75% of 4.) The PERCENT always goes over 100. (It's a part of the whole 100%.) 4 appears with the word of: It's the WHOLE and goes on the bottom. Cross Multiply to solve: 4 times (part) (part) (part) 3 (part) 75% of 4 3 Solve: 1. What is 40% of 164? 8. 3 is 20% of what number? is 75% of what? 9. What is 5% of 34? is what percent of 20? % of what number is 24? 4. What is 85% of 600? is what percent of 51? 5. What percent of 60 is 28? % of 188 is what? is what percent of 3? % of what is 315? 7. 16% of what number is 12? is what percent of 300? ~ 9 ~

12 Integers Multiplying Integers 1. If the integers have the same sign, multiply the two numbers and the result is positive a. 2 x b. -9 x If the integers have different signs, multiply the two numbers and the result is negative a. 5 x b. -9 x 3-27 Dividing Integers 1. If the integers have the same sign, divide the two numbers and the result is positive a b If the integers have different signs, divide the two numbers and the result is negative a b x x x x x x x x x x x x x ~ 11 ~

13 Combining Like Terms What are Like Terms? The following are like terms because each term consists of a single variable, x, and a numeric coefficient. 2x, 45x, x, 0x, -26x, -x Each of the following are like terms because they are all constants. 15, -2, 27, 9043, 0.6 What are Unlike Terms? These terms are not alike since different variables are used. 17x, 17z These terms are not alike since each y variable in the terms below has a different exponent. 15y, 19y 2, 31y 5 Although both terms below have an x variable, only one term has the y variable, thus these are not like terms either. 19x, 14xy Examples - Simplify Group like terms together first, and then simplify. 2x 2 + 3x 4 x 2 + x + 9 2x 2 + 3x 4 x 2 + x + 9 (2x 2 x 2 ) + (3x + x) + ( 4 + 9) x 2 + 4x x 3 14x 2 + 3x 4x 3 + 4x 6 10x 3 14x 2 + 3x 4x 3 + 4x 6 (10x 3 4x 3 ) + ( 14x 2 ) + (3x + 4x) 6 6x 3 14x 2 + 7x 6 Directions: Simplify each expression below by combining like terms. 1) 6k + 7k 2) 12r ) n n 3 4) 4x 10x 5) r 10r 6) 2x x 7) v + 12v 8) x x 9) 5+ x ) 2x x ) 2x x ) 2x 3 + 3x + x 2 + 4x 3 ~ 12 ~

14 Order of Operations "Operations" means things like add, subtract, multiply, divide, squaring, etc. But, when you see an expression: 7 + ( )... what part should you calculate first? Warning: Calculate them in the wrong order, and you will get a wrong answer! So, long ago people agreed to follow rules when doing calculations, and they are: First: Do things in Parentheses Example: Next: Exponents (Powers, Roots) Example: 6 (5 + 3) (5 + 3) (wrong) (wrong) Then: Multiply or Divide before you Add or Subtract. Example: HINT: go left to right. Example: (wrong) (wrong) Remember it by PEMDAS Please Excuse My Dear Aunt Sally After you have done P and E, just go from left to right doing any M or D as you find them. Then go from left to right doing any A or S as you find them. Simplify: (5+7) 6. (10+2 3) ( (2+1) ( ) 5. 1 ( ) ( 3 4 ) 2 ~ 13 ~

15 Distributive Property In algebra, the use of parentheses is used to indicate operations to be performed. For example, the expression 4(2x y) indicates that 4 times the binomial 2x y is 8x- 4y Additional Examples: 1.2(x+y) 2x+2y 2. 3(2a+b c) 3(2a) 3(b) 3( c) 6a 3b+3c 3. 3(2x+3y) 3(2x)+3(2y)6x+9y 1. 3(4x + 6) + 7x 6. 6m + 3(2m + 5) (2 + 3x) (m + 9) m (4x + 4) 8. 3m + 2(5 + m) + 5m (x + 8) 9. 6m (3m + 7) 5. 3(7x + 2) + 8x 10. 4(2m + 6) + 3(3 + 5m) ~ 14 ~

16 Solving Equations An equation is a mathematical statement that has two expressions separated by an equal sign. The expression on the left side of the equal sign has the same value as the expression on the right side. To solve an equation means to determine a numerical value for a variable that makes this statement true by isolating or moving everything except the variable to one side of the equation. To do this, combine like terms on each side, then add or subtract the same value from both sides. Next, clear out any fractions by multiplying every term by the denominator, and then divide every term by the same nonzero value. Remember to keep both sides of an equation equal, you must do exactly the same thing to each side of the equation. Examples: a. x x 5 3 is being added to the variable, so to get rid of the added 3, we do the opposite, subtract 3. b. 5x x 15 5x x 3 Solve 1.) 4x ) - 7x First, undo the subtraction by adding 2. Then, undo the multiplication by dividing by 5. 3.) 5x ) 2x ) - 3x ) 8 + 7x ) - 3x 18 8.) 5x ~ 15 ~

17 Evaluating Expressions Simplify the expression first. Then evaluate the resulting expression for the given value of the variable. Example 3x + 5(2x + 6) if x 4 3x + 10x x (4) y + 9 x ; if x 1, and y (3 + 5m) + 2(m + 6) if m (9-4x) if x (4m + 5) + 2(4m + 1) if m (4x + 1) + x if x (8 + m) + 2(m 7) if m (2m + 1) + 3(5m + 3) if m 2 8. y 2 + x ; if x -1, and y 2 ~ 16 ~

18 The Coordinate Plane This is a coordinate plane. It has two axes and four quadrants. The two number lines form the axes. The horizontal number line is called the x-axis and the vertical number line is called the y- axis. The center of the coordinate plane is called the origin. It has the coordinates of (0,0). Locations of points on the plane can be plotted when one coordinate from each of the axes are used. This set of x and y values are called ordered pairs. State the quadrant or axis that each point lies in. 1) J (, ) 2) G(-, ) 3) D(-, ) 4) A (-, ) 5) I (, ) 6) F (, ) 7) C (, ) 8) H (, ) 9) E (, ) 10) B (, ) ~ 17 ~

19 Plotting Points The first coordinate of a plotted point is called the 'x' coordinate. The 'x' coordinate is the horizontal distance from the origin to the plotted point. The second coordinate of a plotted point is called the 'y' coordinate. The 'y' coordinate is the vertical distance from the origin to the plotted point. So, to locate the point: (2, 3) on our graph below, we start at the origin and move 2 units horizontally and 3 units vertically. When locating points, positive 'x' values are to the right of the origin, while negative 'x' values are to the left of the origin. Also, positive 'y' values are above the origin, while negative 'y' values are below the origin. Plot each of the points on the graph: ( 1 ) Point D at (0, 10) ( 5 ) Point E at (-4, -8) ( 9 ) Point P at (-9, -10) ( 2 ) Point J at (-1, 6) ( 6 ) Point F at (5, 6) (10) Point G at (-7, 9) ( 3 ) Point O at (-8, 1) ( 7 ) Point S at (-8, 2) (11) Point Z at (-7, -5) ( 4 ) Point B at (-9, -3) ( 8 ) Point H at (6, 8) (12) Point Y at (0, -8) ~ 18 ~

20 Plotting Points Write the coordinates of each point: 1 ) Point L: 6 ) Point F: 11) Point N: 16) Point O: 2 ) Point U: 7 ) Point X: 12) Point D: 17) Point W: 3 ) Point B: 8 ) Point I: 13) Point Y: 18) Point T: 4 ) Point P: 9 ) Point G: 14) Point R: 5 ) Point C: 10) Point M: 15) Point E: ~ 19 ~

21 Tables of Values (T Charts) Any equation can be graphed using a table of values. A table of values is a graphic organizer or chart that helps you determine two or more points that can be used to create your graph. In order to graph a line, you must have two points. For any given linear equation, there are an infinite number of solutions or points on that line. Every point on that line is a solution to the equation. In a T Chart: The first column is for the x coordinate. For this column, you can choose any number. The second column is for the y value. After substituting your x value into the equation, your answer is the y coordinate. The result of each row is an ordered pair. Your ordered pair is the x value and the y value. This is the point on your graph. Example: Determine solutions to the equation y 3x + 2 1) Draw a T-chart x y 2) Select values for x: x y 3) Evaluate the equation for each x value: y 3x + 2 x - 1 y 3(-1) + 2 y y -1 y 3x + 2 x 0 y 3(0) + 2 y y 2 y 3x + 2 x - 1 y 3(1) + 2 y y 5 4) Complete the chart with the values: x y Determine three solutions to each equation: 1. y 2x+1 4. y -2 x y 3x y y -x y 4x +10 ~ 20 ~
