A 2.4-meter sailboat is a one-person boat that is about 13 feet in length, has a displacement of about 550 pounds, and a sail area of about 81 square feet. To compete in the 2.4-meter class, a boat must satisfy the formula L 2D F S 2.4, 2.37 where L Length, F freeboard, D girth, and S sail area. Solve the formula for L.

Record all scores and compute your final grade. 2.5 TRANSLATING VERBAL EXPRESSIONS INTO ALGEBRAIC EXPRESSIONS You translated some verbal epressions into algebraic epressions in Section 1.6; in this section you will study translating in more detail. Writing Algebraic Epressions The following bo contains a list of some frequently occurring verbal epressions and their equivalent algebraic epressions. Translating Words into Algebra Algebraic Verbal Phrase Epression Addition: The sum of a number and 8 8 Five is added to a number 5 Two more than a number 2 A number increased by 3 3 Subtraction: Four is subtracted from a number 4 Three less than a number 3 The difference between 7 and a number 7 A number decreased by 2 2 Multiplication: The product of 5 and a number 5 Twice a number 2 1 One-half of a number 2 Five percent of a number 0.05 Division: The ratio of a number to 6 6 The quotient of 5 and a number 5 3 Three divided by some number

2 2.5 Translating Verbal Epressions into Algebraic Epressions (2-31) 95 E X A M P L E 1 E X A M P L E 2 We know that and 10 have a sum of 10 for any value of. We can easily check that fact by adding: In general it is not true that and 10 have a sum of 10, because For what value of is the sum of and 10 equal to 10 If you think that you have written two algebraic epressions that have a sum of 8, you should try some numbers as a check. For eample, if 3, then and 3 ( 11) 8. If 1, then 8 8 ( 1) 7 and 1 ( 7) 8. Writing algebraic epressions Translate each verbal epression into an algebraic epression. a) The sum of a number and 9 b) Eighty percent of a number c) A number divided by 4 a) If is the number, then the sum of a number and 9 is 9. b) If w is the number, then eighty percent of the number is 0.80w. c) If y is the number, then the number divided by 4 is 4 y Pairs of Numbers There is often more than one unknown quantity in a problem, but a relationship between the unknown quantities is given. For eample, if one unknown number is 5 more than another unknown number, we can use and 5, to represent them. Note that and 5 can also be used to represent two unknown numbers that differ by 5, for if two numbers differ by 5, one of the numbers is 5 more than the other. How would you represent two numbers that have a sum of 10 If one of the numbers is 2, the other is certainly 10 2, or 8. Thus if is one of the numbers, then 10 is the other. The epressions and 10 have a sum of 10 for any value of. Algebraic epressions for pairs of numbers Write algebraic epressions for each pair of numbers. a) Two numbers that differ by 12 b) Two numbers with a sum of 8 a) The epressions and 12 represent two numbers that differ by 12. Of course, and 12 also differ by 12. We can check by subtracting: b) The epressions and 8 have a sum of 8. We can check by addition: 8 8 Pairs of numbers occur in geometry in discussing measures of angles. You will need the following facts about degree measures of angles. Degree Measures of Angles Two angles are called complementary if the sum of their degree measures is 90. Two angles are called supplementary if the sum of their degree measures is 180. The sum of the degree measures of the three angles of any triangle is 180.

3 96 (2-32) Chapter 2 Linear Equations and Inequalities in One Variable For complementary angles, we use and 90 for their degree measures. For supplementary angles, we use and 180. Complementary angles that share a common side form a right angle. Supplementary angles that share a common side form a straight angle or straight line. E X A M P L E 3 Degree measures Write algebraic epressions for each pair of angles shown. a) b) c) B A 30 C For Eample 3(a) we could write So the angles are and 90. In Eample 3(c) we could write y y 150 y 150. So the missing angles are and 150. a) Since the angles shown are complementary, we can use to represent the degree measure of the smaller angle and 90 to represent the degree measure of the larger angle. b) Since the angles shown are supplementary, we can use to represent the degree measure of the smaller angle and 180 to represent the degree measure of the larger angle. c) If we let represent the degree measure of angle B, then , or 150, represents the degree measure of angle C. Consecutive Integers To gain practice in problem solving, we will solve problems about consecutive integers in Section 2.6. Note that each integer is 1 larger than the previous integer, while consecutive even integers as well as consecutive odd integers differ by 2. E X A M P L E 4 If is even, then, 2, and 4 represent three consecutive even integers. If is odd, then, 2, and 4 represent three consecutive odd integers. Is it possible for, 1, and 3 to represent three consecutive even integers or three consecutive odd integers Epressions for integers Write algebraic epressions for the following unknown integers. a) Three consecutive integers, the smallest of which is w b) Three consecutive even integers, the smallest of which is z a) Since each integer is 1 larger than the preceding integer, we can use w, w 1, and w 2 to represent them. b) Since consecutive even integers differ by 2, these integers can be represented by z, z 2, and z 4. Using Formulas In writing epressions for unknown quantities, we often use standard formulas such as those given at the back of the book.

4 2.5 Translating Verbal Epressions into Algebraic Epressions (2-33) 97 E X A M P L E 5 Writing algebraic epressions using standard formulas Find an algebraic epression for a) the distance if the rate is 30 miles per hour and the time is T hours. b) the discount if the rate is 40% and the original price is p dollars. a) Using the formula D RT, we have D 30T. So 30T is an epression that represents the distance in miles. b) Since the discount is the rate times the original price, an algebraic epression for the discount is 0.40p dollars. Writing Equations To solve a problem using algebra, we describe or model the problem with an equation. Sometimes we write an equation from the information given in the problem and sometimes we use a standard model to get the equation. Some standard models that we use to write equations are shown in the following bo. Uniform Motion Model Distance Rate Time Selling Price and Discount Model Discount Rate of discount Original price Selling Price Original price Discount Real Estate Commission Model Commission Rate of commission Selling price Amount for owner Selling price Commission D R T Percentage Models What number is 5% of Ten is what percent of Twenty is 4% of what number Geometric Models for Area Rectangle: A LW Square: A s 2 Parallelogram: A bh Triangle: A 1 2 bh Geometric Models for Perimeter Perimeter of any figure the sum of the lengths of the sides Rectangle: P 2L 2W Square: P 4s More geometric formulas can be found in Appendi A. E X A M P L E 6 Writing equations Identify the variable and write an equation that describes each situation. a) Find two numbers that have a sum of 14 and a product of 45. b) A coat is on sale for 25% off the list price. If the sale price is \$87, then what is the list price c) What percent of 8 is 2 d) The value of dimes and 3 quarters is \$2.05.

5 98 (2-34) Chapter 2 Linear Equations and Inequalities in One Variable At this point we are simply learning to write equations that model certain situations. Don t worry about solving these equations now. In Section 2.6 we will solve problems by writing an equation and solving it. a) Let one of the numbers and 14 the other number. Since their product is 45, we have (14 ) 45. b) Let the list price and 0.25 the amount of discount. We can write an equation epressing the fact that the selling price is the list price minus the discount: List price discount selling price c) If we let represent the percentage, then the equation is 8 2, or 8 2. d) The value of dimes at 10 cents each is 10 cents. The value of 3 quarters at 25 cents each is 25( 3) cents. We can write an equation epressing the fact that the total value of the coins is 205 cents: Value of dimes value of quarters total value 10 25( 3) 205 CAUTION The value of the coins in Eample 6(d) is either 205 cents or 2.05 dollars. If the total value is epressed in dollars, then all of the values must be epressed in dollars. So we could also write the equation as ( 3) WARM-UPS True or false Eplain your answer. 1.
