3 Equal Groups Multiplying and Dividing Integers Learning Goals In this lesson, you will: Multiply integers. Divide integers. Pick any positive integer. If the integer is even, divide it by 2. If it is odd, multiply it by 3 and then add 1. Repeat this process with your result. No matter what number you start with, eventually you will have a result of 1. This is known as the Collatz Conjecture a conjecture in mathematics that no one has yet proven or disproven. How do you think it works? 5.1 Multiplying and Dividing Integers 253

4 Problem 1 Multiply Integers When you multiply integers, you can think of multiplication as repeated addition. Consider the expression 3 3 (24). As repeated addition, it means (24) 1 (24) 1 (24) You can think of 3 3 (24) as three groups of (24). 5 ( 4) ( 4) ( 4) Chapter 5 Multiplication and Division with Rational Numbers

5 Here is another example: 4 3 (23). You can think of this as four sets of (23), or (23) 1 (23) 1 (23) 1 (23) ( 3) ( 3) ( 3) ( 3) And here is a third example: (23) 3 (24). You know that 3 3 (24) means three groups of (24) and that 23 means the opposite of 3. So, (23) 3 (24) means the opposite of 3 groups of (24). Opposite of ( 4) Opposite of ( 4) Opposite of ( 4) (+4) (+4) (+4) Multiplying and Dividing Integers 255

Explain your reasoning. 260 Chapter 5 Multiplication and Division with Rational Numbers

11 Problem 2 Division of Integers When you studied division in elementary school, you learned that multiplication and division were inverse operations. For every multiplication fact, you can write a corresponding division fact. The example shown is a fact family for 4, 5, and 20. Fact Family Similarly, you can write fact families for integer multiplication and division. Examples: (24) (27) (28) (27) (28) (24) What pattern(s) do you notice in each fact family? 2. Write a fact family for 26, 8, and Multiplying and Dividing Integers 261

Be prepared to share your solutions and methods. 262 Chapter 5 Multiplication and Division with Rational Numbers

13 What s My Product or Quotient? Multiplying and Dividing Rational Numbers Learning Goals In this lesson, you will: Multiply rational numbers. Divide rational numbers. L ook at these models. The top model shows 6 8, and the bottom model shows 3 8. To determine , you can ask, How many 3 8 go into 6? You can see that the 8 answer, or quotient, is just 6 4 3, or 2. So, if you are dividing two fractions with the same denominators, can you always just divide the numerators to determine the quotient? Try it out and see! 5.2 Multiplying and Dividing Rational Numbers 263

14 Problem 1 From Integer to Rational In this lesson, you will apply what you learned about multiplying and dividing with integers to multiply and divide with rational numbers. 1.

17 Properties Schmoperties Simplifying Arithmetic Expressions with Rational Numbers Learning Goal In this lesson, you will: Simply arithmetic expressions using the number properties and the order of operations. Suppose you didn t know that a negative times a negative is equal to a positive. How could you prove it? One way is to use properties in this case, the Zero Property and the Distributive Property. The Zero Property tells us that any number times 0 is equal to 0, and the Distributive Property tells us that something like 4 3 (2 1 3) is equal to (4 3 2) 1 (4 3 3). We want these properties to be true for negative numbers too. So, start with this: That s the Zero Property. We want that to be true. Now, let s replace the first 0 with an expression that equals 0: 25 3 (5 1 25) 5 0 Using the Distributive Property, we can rewrite that as (25 3 5) 1 ( ) 5 0 Hey, did you hear what Zero said to Eight? "Nice belt." 225 1? 5 0 For the properties to be true, has to equal positive 25! What other number properties do you remember learning about? 5.3 Simplifying Arithmetic Expressions with Rational Numbers 267

23 Building a Wright Brothers Flyer Evaluating Expressions with Rational Numbers Learning Goals In this lesson, you will: Model a situation with an expression using rational numbers. Evaluate rational expressions. On December 17, 1903, two brothers Orville and Wilbur Wright became the first two people to make a controlled flight in a powered plane. They made four flights that day, the longest covering only 852 feet and lasting just 59 seconds. Human flight progressed amazingly quickly after those first flights. In the year before Orville died, Chuck Yeager had already piloted the first flight that broke the sound barrier! 5.4 Evaluating Expressions with Rational Numbers 273

24 Problem 1 Building a Wright Brothers Flyer In order to build a balsa wood model of the Wright brothers plane, you would need to cut long lengths of wood spindles into shorter lengths for the wing stays, the vertical poles that support and connect the two wings. Each stay for the main wings of the model needs to be cut 3 1 inches long. 4 Show your work and explain your reasoning. 1. If the wood spindles are each 10 inches long, how many stays could you cut from one spindle? 2. How many inches of the spindle would be left over? 274 Chapter 5 Multiplication and Division with Rational Numbers

25 3. If the wood spindles are each 12 inches long, how many stays could you cut from one spindle? 4. How many inches of the spindle would be left over? You also need to cut vertical stays for the smaller wing that are each 1 5 inches long If the wood spindles are each 10 inches long, how many of these stays could you cut from one spindle? 5.4 Evaluating Expressions with Rational Numbers 275

26 6. How many inches of the spindle would be left over? 7. If the wood spindles are each 12 inches long, how many stays could you cut from one spindle? 276 Chapter 5 Multiplication and Division with Rational Numbers

27 8. How many inches of the spindle would be left over? 9. Which length of spindle should be used to cut each of the different stays so that there is the least amount wasted? 5.4 Evaluating Expressions with Rational Numbers 277

28 Problem 2 Building a Wright Brothers Flyer Redux Remember, a stay is inch. There are longer spindles that measure 36 inches. 1. How much of a 36-inch-long spindle would be left over if you cut one of the stays from it? Show your work and explain your reasoning. 2. How much of this spindle would be left over if you cut two of the stays from it? 3. Define variables for the number of 3 1 inch stays and the amount of the 36-inch-long 4 spindle that is left over. 278 Chapter 5 Multiplication and Division with Rational Numbers

29 4. Write an equation for the relationship between these variables. 5. Use your equation to calculate the amount of the spindle left over after cutting 10 stays. 6. Use your equation to calculate the amount of the spindle left over after cutting 13 stays. 5.4 Evaluating Expressions with Rational Numbers 279

33 Repeat or Not? That Is the Question! Exact Decimal Representations of Fractions Learning Goals In this lesson, you will: Use decimals and fractions to evaluate arithmetic expressions. Convert fractions to decimals. Represent fractions as repeating decimals. Key Terms terminating decimals non-terminating decimals repeating decimals non-repeating decimals bar notation Sometimes calculating an exact answer is very important. For example, making sure that all the parts of an airplane fit exactly is very important to keep the plane in the air. Can you think of other examples where very exact answers are necessary? 5.5 Exact Decimal Representations of Fractions 283

34 Problem 1 Not More Homework! Jayme was complaining to her brother about having to do homework problems with fractions like this: ( ) ? Jayme said, I have to find the least common denominator, convert the fractions to equivalent fractions with the least common denominator, and then calculate the answer! Her brother said, Whoa! Why don t you just use decimals? 1. Calculate the answer using Jayme s method. 2. Convert each mixed number to a decimal and calculate the sum. 3. In this case, which method do you think works best? Jayme said: That s okay for that problem, but what about this next one? ( ) 1 ( ) Chapter 5 Multiplication and Division with Rational Numbers

35 4. Calculate the answer using Jayme s method. 5. Will Jayme s brother s method work for the second problem? Why or why not? Problem 2 Analyzing Decimals 1. Convert each fraction to a decimal. a. 11 b c. 27 d Exact Decimal Representations of Fractions 285

36 e. 7 f g. 7 h i. 3 j Decimals can be classified in four different ways: terminating, non-terminating, repeating, or non-repeating. A terminating decimal has a finite number of digits, meaning that the decimal will end, or terminate. A non-terminating decimal is a decimal that continues without end. A repeating decimal is a decimal in which a digit, or a group of digits, repeat(s) without end. A non-repeating decimal neither terminates nor repeats. Bar notation is used for repeating decimals. Consider the example shown. The sequence repeats. The numbers that lie underneath the bar are those numbers that repeat The bar is called a vinculum. 286 Chapter 5 Multiplication and Division with Rational Numbers

37 2. Classify each decimal in Question 1, parts (a) through ( j) as terminating, non-terminating, repeating, or non-repeating. If the decimal repeats, rewrite it using bar notation. 3. Can all fractions be represented as either terminating or repeating decimals? Write some examples to explain your answer. 4. Complete the graphic organizer. Describe each decimal in words. Show examples. Be prepared to share your solutions and methods. 5.5 Exact Decimal Representations of Fractions 287

38 Terminating Non-Terminating Decimals p is a well-known non-repeating decimal. You will learn more when you study circles later in this course. Repeating Non-Repeating 288 Chapter 5 Multiplication and Division with Rational Numbers

39 Chapter 5 Summary Key Terms terminating decimals (5.5) non-terminating decimals (5.5) repeating decimals (5.5) non-repeating decimals (5.5) bar notation (5.5) Multiplying Integers When multiplying integers, multiplication can be thought of as repeated addition. Two-color counter models and number lines can be used to represent multiplication of integers. Example Consider the expression 3 3 (23). As repeated addition, it means (23) 1 (23) 1 (23) The expression 3 3 (23) can be thought of as three groups of (23). Dividing complicated tasks, or problems, into simpler pieces can help your brain better learn and understand. Try it! = (-3) (-3) (-3) Chapter 5 Summary 289

40 Dividing Integers Multiplication and division are inverse operations. For every multiplication fact, there is a corresponding division fact. Example This is a fact family for 3, 8, and Determining the Sign of a Product or Quotient The sign of a product or quotient of two integers depends on the signs of the two integers being multiplied or divided. The product or quotient will be positive when both integers have the same sign. The product or quotient will be negative when one integer is positive and the other is negative. Example Notice the sign of each product or quotient. he Multiplying and Dividing Rational Numbers The rules used to determine the sign of a product or quotient of two integers also apply when multiplying and dividing rational numbers. Example The product or quotient of each are shown following the rules for determining the sign for each Chapter 5 Multiplication and Division with Rational Numbers

Example The steps for simplifying the expression are shown ( ) ( ) 5 Number Property/Operation ( ) 5 Distributive Property of Multiplication over Addition ( 8 ) 5 Addition 22 Multiplication Evaluating Expressions with Rational Numbers To evaluate an expression containing variables, substitute the values for the variables and then perform the necessary operations. Example The evaluation of the expression ( m ) when m 5 7 is shown ( ) ( 4 5 ) ( 4 5 ) ( 1 1 ) 5 7 Chapter 5 Summary 291

42 Representing Fractions as Decimals To convert a fraction to a decimal, divide the numerator of the fraction by the denominator. A terminating decimal has a finite number of digits, meaning that the decimal will end or terminate. A non-terminating decimal is a decimal that continues without end. A repeating decimal is a decimal in which a digit, or a group of digits, repeats without end. When writing a repeating decimal, bar notation is used to indicate the digits that repeat. A non-repeating decimal neither terminates nor repeats. Example The fraction 3 is a terminating decimal. The decimal equivalent of 3 is The fraction 2 is a non-terminating, repeating decimal. The decimal equivalent of is Using bar notation, 2 is written as Chapter 5 Multiplication and Division with Rational Numbers
