The National Council of Teachers of Mathematics recommends
the following curriculum focal points and related connections as
the most important math topics to be learned in Grade 7. You can
learn more about the focal points by visiting ^^ttp://www.nctm.org.
Grade 7 Curriculum Focal Points
7.FP.1: Grade 7 Focal Point 1
Number and Operations and Algebra and Geometry: Developing an
understanding of and applying proportionality, including similarity.
Students extend their work with ratios to develop an understanding of
proportionality that they apply to solve single and multistep problems in
numerous contexts. They use ratio and proportionality to solve a wide variety
of percent problems, including problems involving discounts, interest,
taxes, tips, and percent increase or decrease. They also solve problems
about similar objects (including figures) by using scale factors that relate
corresponding lengths of the objects or by using the fact that relationships
of lengths within an object are preserved in similar objects. Students graph
proportional relationships and identify the unit rate as the slope of the
related line. They distinguish proportional relationships (4 = k, or y — kx)
from other relationships, including inverse proportionality {xy = k, or y = ).
CHAPTERS 4, 5, AND 6
* 7.FP.2: Grade 7 Focal Point 2
Measurement and Geometry and Algebra: Developing an understanding
of and using formulas to determine surface areas and volumes of three
dimensional shapes.
By decomposing two and threedimensional shapes into smaller,
component shapes, students find smface areas and develop and justify
formulas for the surface areas and volumes of prisms and cylinders. As
students decompose prisms and cylinders by slicing them, they develop and
understand formulas for their volumes (Volume = Area of base x Height).
They apply these formulas in problem solving to determine volumes
of prisms and cylinders. Students see that the formula for the area of a
circle is plausible by decomposing a circle into a number of wedges and
rearranging them into a shape that approximates a parallelogram. They
select appropriate two and threedimensional shapes to model realworld
situations and solve a variety of problems (including multistep problems)
involving surface areas, areas and circumferences of circles, and volumes of
prisms and cylinders, chapters 9 and 10
■ 7.FP.3: Grade 7 Focal Point 3
Number and Operations and Algebra: Developing an understanding of
operations on all rational numbers and solving linear equations.
Students extend understandings of addition, subtraction, multiplication, and
division, together with their properties, to all rational numbers, including
negative integers. By applying properties of arithmetic and considering
INS Focal Points
negative numbers in everyday contexts (e.g.. situations of owing money
or measuring elevations above and below sea level), students explain why
the rules for adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing with negative
numbers make sense. They use the arithmetic of rational numbers as
they formulate and solve linear equations in one variable and use these
equations to solve problems. Students make strategic choices of procedures
to solve linear equations in one variable and implement them efficiently,
understanding that when they use the properties of equality to express an
equation in a new way, solutions that they obtain for the new equation also
solve the original equation, chapters 1, 2, 3, and 12
Connections to the Focal Points
7.FPC.4: Grade 7 Focal Point Connection 4
Measurement and Geometry: Students connect their work on
proportionality w ith their work on area and volume by investigating similar
objects. They understaird that if a scale factor describes how corresponding
lengths in two similar objects are related, then the square of the scale
factor describes how corresponding areas are related, and the cube of the
scale factor describes how corresponding volumes are related. Students
apply their work on proportionality to measurement in different contexts,
including converting among different units of measurement to solve
problems involving rates such as motion at a constant speed. They also
apply proportionality when they work with the circumference, radius, and
diameter of a circle; when they find the area of a sector of a circle; and when
they make scale drawings, chapters 4, 9, and 10
7.FPC.5: Grade 7 Focal Point Connection 5
Number and Operations: In grade 4, students used equivalent fractions
to determine the decimal representations of fractions that they could
represent with terminating decimals. Students now use division to express
any fraction as a decimal, including fractions that they must represent
with infinite decimals. They find this method useful when working with
proportions, especially those involving percents. Students connect their
work with dividing fractions to solving equations of the form ax = b, where
a and b are fractions. Students continue to develop their understanding of
multiplication and division and the structure of numbers by determining if a
counting number greater than 1 is a prime, and if it is not, by factoring it into
a product of primes, chapters 2, 3, and 6
7.FPC.6: Grade 7 Focal Point Connection 6
Data Analysis: Students use proportions to make estimates relating to a
population on the basis of a sample. They apply percentages to make and
interpret histograms and circle graphs, chapter 7
7.FPC.7: Grade 7 Focal Point Connection 7
Probability: Students understand that when all outcomes of an experiment
are equally likely, the theoretical probability of an event is the fraction of
outcomes in which the event occurs. Students use theoretical probability and
proportions to make approximate predictions, chapter 1 1

Math Testing and
Critical Thinking Skills
What Are
Critical
Thinking Skills?
Critical thinking skills are not a new phenomenon on
the education scene. In 1956, Benjamin Bloom published
a book that listed critical thinking skills in the form of a
taxonomy as shown in the illustration below.
Bloom's Taxonomy of Educational Objectives
Evaluation
Synthesis
Analysis
Application
Comprehension
Knowledge
Knowledge is the simplest level of education objectives
and is not considered a higherorder thinking skill. It
requires the learner to remember information without
having to fully understand it. Tasks that students perform
to demonstrate knowledge are recalling, identifying,
recognizing, citing, labeling, listing, reciting, and stating.
EXAMPLES
1 . \i''hat IS the formitld for the area of a trapezoid?
2. What quadrant is the point (2, 6) located m?
3. What IS the reciprocal of y?
IN36
• Comprehension is not considered a higherorder
thinking skill either. Learners demonstrate compre
hension when they paraphrase, describe, summarize,
illustrate, restate, or translate. Information isn't use
ful unless it's understood. Students can show they've
understood by restating the information in their own
words or by giving an example of the concept.
EXAMPLES
1 . Explain the difference between the points (4, 5)
and (5, 4).
2. Interpret the information in the graph below.
3. Give an example of an irrational number.
Many teachers tend to focus the most on knowledge and
comprehension — and the tasks performed at these levels
are important because they provide a solid foundation for
the more complex tasks at the higher levels of Bloom's
pyramid.
However, offering students the opportunity to perform
at still higher cognitive levels provides them with more
meaningful contexts in which to use the information
and skills they have acquired, thus allowing them to
more easily retain what they have learned.
When teachers incorporate application, analysis,
synthesis, and evaluation as objectives, they allow
students to utilize higherorder thinking skills.
• Application involves solving, transforming, determining,
demonstrating, and preparing. Information becomes
useful when students apply it to new situations —
predicting outcomes, estimating answers — this is
application.
EXAMPLES
1. Organize the forms of pollution frorn most damaging
to least damaging.
2. Using the scale of 1 inch equals 200 miles, determine
the pointtopoint distance between Boston and
Atlanta.
3. Put the information below into a bar graph.
IN37
• Analysis includes classifying, comparing, making asso
ciations, verifying, seeing causeandeffect relationships,
and determining sequences, patterns, and consequences.
You can think of analysis as taking something apart in
order to better understand it. Students must be able to
thmk in categories in order to analyze.
EXAMPLES
1 . What math skills do you use when reading a circle
graphs
2. Use the function table to write a rule for y in terms
ofx.
3. How can you use the LCM of 3 and 5 to find the
sum of y and t ?
• Synthesis requires generalizing, predicting, imagining,
creating, making inferences, hypothcsizmg, making deci
sions, and drawing conclusions. Students create some
thing which is new to them when thev use synthesis.
It's important to remember, though, that students can't
create until thev have the skills and information thev have
received in the comprehension through analvsis levels.
EXAMPLES
1. Make a scale drawing of your classroom.
2. Write a word problem that can be represented by the
equation 3 + y = 5.
3. Poll your classmates about their favorite breakfast
food and display your results in an appropriate graph.
• Evaluation involves assessing, persuading, determining
value, ludging, validating, and solving problems. Evaluation
is based on all the other levels. When students evaluate,
they make judgments, but not judgments based on per
sonal taste. These judgments must be based on criteria. It
is important for students to evaluate because they learn to
consider different points of view and to know how to
validate their udgments.
EXAMPLES
1 . Which of the following describes the correct way to
round "3^r'
2. Based on the ratios of protein to serving size and
fat to serving size, which muffin do you think is
healthier? Explain.
3. Do you think the statistics given in the article are
accurate? Why or why not?
IN38
Why is it
Important
for Students
to Work with
HigherOrder
Thinl<ing Skills?
For one thing, if students can determine the levels of
questions that will appear on their tests, they will be able
to study using appropriate strategies. Bloom's leveling
of questions provides a useful structure in which to
categorize test questions, since tests will characteristically
ask questions within particular levels.
Also, thinking is a skill that can be taught. When vou
have students practice answering questions at all the
levels of Bloom's taxonomy, you are helping to scaffold
then' learning. Information just becomes trivia unless that
information is understood well enough to build more
complicated concepts or generalizations. When students
can comprehend — not just recall — the information, it
becomes useful for future problem solving or creative
thought. Think of information as a building material —
like a board. It could be used to build something, but
it is just useless litter unless you understand how to
make use of it.
Below are some question stems you — or your students
could use to create questions for each of the levels of
higherorder thinking:
Application
1. Make a diagram to show .
2. Use (a formula, manipulatives, mental math, a
problem solving strategy, etc.) to find .
3. (Find, determine, calculate, compute, etc.) .
4. Explain how the (prmciple, theorem, concept) is
evident in .
5. In what way is a ?
Analysis
1. Which (strategies, operations, etc.) would you use
to solve this problem?
2. Find a pattern in .
3. What other (properties, rules, definitions) are similar?
Explain.
4. Compare and contrast .
5. How does the value of affect the value
of ?
IN39
Synthesis
1 . Write a problem that can be solved by .
2. Use information in (your science book, a newspaper
article, etc.) to write a problem.
3. Create a new way to classify .
4. Design your own to show .
5. Create a new way to .
Evaluation
1. Is (an answer, an estmiate, etc.) reasonable? Explain.
2. Do you have enough information to solve this
problem?
3. Which best represents ?
4. Which solution method (is most efficient, is most
accurate, gives the most information, etc.)?
5. What is the nnportant mformation in this problem?
IN40
MultipleChoice Questions
The most common type of test question is multiple choice.
To answer questions on a multiplechoice test, you will
most likely fill in an answer sheet. It is very important to
fill in your answer sheet correctly. When shading in circles,
make your marks heavy and dark. Fill in the circles com
pletely, but do not shade outside the circles. Do not make
any stray marks on your answer sheet.
Questions on a multiplechoice test may require an under
standing of number and operations, algebra, geometiy, mea
surement, and data analysis and probability. Drawings, grids,
or charts mav be included for certain tvpes of questions.
Read each question carefullv and work the problem. You
may be allowed to use blank space in the test booklet to
write your calculations. Choose your answer from among
the answer choices given, and fill in the corresponding
circle on your answer sheet.
If your answer is not one of the choices, read the question
again. Be sure that vou understand the problem. Check
your work for possible errors.
Sample Question
Try the following practice question to prepare for taking
a multiplechoice test. Choose the best answer from the
choices given.
In a group of 30 students, 17 are middle school students,
and the others are high school students. If one person is
selected at random from this group, what is the probability
that the person selected will be a high school student?
I
B.
C.
D.
10
"• 30 "10 ^10
Think About the Solution
There are 30 people in the group. If T? are middle school
students, how many are high school students? (3) If one
person is selected, there is a probability of 3 out of 30 that
the person will be a high school student. This can be writ
ten as a ratio (3:30), a fraction (^j, a decimal (0.1), or a
percent (10%). None of these solutions is listed, so look
for an equivalent solution. The fraction r^ can be simpli
fied to tq . Since jq is given as one of your answer
choices, B is the correct response.
IN41
GriddedResponse Questions
Some questions require you to place your answer in
a special grid. This type of question is called "gridded
response" and may be identified by a special logo on
your test. Answers to these questions may be whole
numbers, fractions, or decimals.
Work the problem and find an answer. Then write your
answer in the grid provided. There is often more than one
correct way to write your answer in the response grid.
When filling in your grid, make your marks heavy and
dark. Fill in the circles completely, but do not shade
outside the circles. Do not make any stray marks on
or outside of your grid.
If your answer does not fit in the grid, you may need to
write vc^ur answer in another form. If your answer still
does not fit, read the question again. Be sure that you
understand the problem. Check your work for possible
errors.
Sample Question
A bowl of fiTut contains 3 oranges, 4 apples, and 3 bananas.
If Amv chooses 1 piece of fioiit at random, what is the
probability that she will choose an apple?

Notice in the sample answers above that you may write
your answers as either fractions or decimals. However,
you mav not write mixed numbers, such as 137, in a
^   I ■
response grid. If vou tried to fill in 13^, it wc)uld be read
as J and would be counted as wrong. If your answer is a
mixed number, write it as an improper fraction (^j or as
a decimal (13.25) before filling in your grid.
IN42
TestTaking Tip
When filling m a response grid,
DO:
• Write your answer in the answer boxes at the top of
the grid.
• Write the decimal point or fraction bar in an answer
box if it is part of the answer.
• Fill in the corresponding circle under each of the boxes
in which you wrote your answer.
• Completely fill in each circle with a solid black mark.
DO NOT:
• Place spaces between the digits or symbols in the
answer boxes.
• Fill in more than one cnxle below each answer box
in which you have written a number or svmbol.
• Fill in a cnxle below an empty answer box.
• Enter symbols besides the fraction bar or decimal
point (such as $ or %) in the answer boxes.
• Enter commas in numbers that have four or more
digits.
• Enter a mixed number into a grid. Write your answer
as an improper fraction or a decimal.
• Make stray marks on or outside of your grid.
It is not important where you place your answer in the
answer boxes, as long as your entire answer fits. You may
left align, right align, or center your answer:
2/5 2/5 2/5
Also, you may include a leading zero for decimals less
than one, but it is not necessary.

The Problem Solving Process
In order to be a good problem solver, you first need a good problem
solving process. A process or strategy will help you to understand the
problem, to work through a solution, and to check that your answer
makes sense. The process used in this book is detailed below.
UNDERSTAND the Problem
I What are you asked to find?
I What information is given?
I What information do you need?
I Is all the information given?
Restate the problem in your own words.
Identify the important facts in the
problem.
Determine which facts are needed to
solve the problem.
Determine whether all the facts are
given.
Have you ever solved a similar
problem?
What strategy or strategies
can you use?
Think about other problems like this
that you successfully solved.
Determine a strategy that you can
use and how vou will use it.
SOLVE
■ Follow your plan.
LOOK BACK
■ Have you answered the question?
■ Is your answer reasonable?
■ Is there another strategy you
could use?
■ Did you learn anything while
solving this problem that could
help you solve similar problems
in the future?
Show the steps in your solution. Write
your answer as a complete sentence.
Be sure that you answered the question
that is being asked.
Your answer should make sense
in the context of the problem.
Solving the problem using another
strategy is a good way to check
your work.
Try to remember the problems you have
solved and the strategies you used to
solve them.

Using the Problem Solving Process
During summer vacation, Ricardo wll go to space
camp and then to visit his relatives. He will be gone
for 5 weeks and 4 days and will spend 1 1 more
days with his relatives than at space camp.
How long will Ricardo stay at each place?
^
UNDERSTAND the Problem
List the important information.
* Ricardo will be gone for 5 weeks and 4 days.
• He will spend 1 1 more days with his relatives than at space camp.
The answer will be how long Ricardo stays at each place.
You can draw a diagram to show how long he will stay at each place.
Use boxes for the length of each stay. The length of each box will
represent the length of each stay.
SOLVE
Think: There are 7 days in a week, so 5 weeks and 4 days is a total of
39 days. Your diagram might look like this:
Relatives
' days
11 days
Space camp
? days
= 39 days
39 — 1 1 = 28 Subtract 1 1 days from the total number of days.
28 ^ 2 = 14 Divide this number by 2 for the 2 places he visits.
Relatives
Space camp
14 days
11 days
= 25 days
14 days
= 14 days
So Ricardo will stay with his relatives for 25 days and at space camp
for 14 days.
LOOK BACK
Twenty five days is 1 1 days longer than 14 days. The total length of the
two stays is 25 + 14 = 39 days, or 5 weeks and 4 days. This solution fits
the information given in the problem.

Solve
• Choose an operation: multiplication or division
To solve a word problem, you must determine which mathematical
operation you can use to find the answer. One way of doing this is
to determine the action the problem is asking you to take. If you
are putting equal parts together, then you need to multiply. If you
are separating something into equal parts, then you need to divide.
Decide what action each problem is asking you to take, and tell
whether you must multiply or divide. Then explain your decision.

EXAMPLE
1942 + 18
In algebra, letters are often used
to represent numbers. You can
use a letter such as a to
represent Harrison Ford's age.
When he turns a years old,
the year will be
1942 + a.
The letter a has a value that can
change, or vary. When a letter
represents a number that can vary,
it is called a variable . The year
1942 is a constant because the
number cannot change.
An algebraic expression consists
of one or more variables. It usually
contains constants and operations.
For example, 1942 + n is an
algebraic expression for the year
Harrison Ford turns a certain age.
To evaluate an algebraic expression, substitute a number for the
variable.

A variable by itself,
such as y, has a
coefficient of 1.
So y = ly.
In the expression 7.y + 9y + 15, 7.y, 9_y,

number, a variable, or a product of
numbers and variables. Terms in an
expression are separated by plus or
minus signs.
In the term 7.v, 7 is called the
coefficient. A coefficient is a
number that is multiplied by a
variable in an algebraic expression.
Like terms are terms with the same variables raised to the same

Michael Jordan's highest point total for a single game was 69. The
entire team scored 117 points in that game. How many points did
his teammates score?
Let p represent the points scored by the rest of the team.
Jordan's points + Teammates' points = Final score
69 + p = 117
69 + p= 117
 69 — 69 Subtract 69 from both sides to isolate p.
p= 48
His teammates scored 48 points.

STANDARDIZED TEST STRATEGIES
Multiple Choice: Eliminate Answer Choices
With some multiplechoice test items, you can use mental math or
number sense to quickly eliminate some of the answer choices before
you begin solving the problem.
EXAMPLE
Which is the solution to the equation x + 7 = 15?
'... ■.._,' 09 QV O O O '^J
>^ W' = v_.'' •■~^j O '^ <»
WW <^ <^ <!& v_, :,_/
®x = 22 CE).v=15 CD x = 8 CE)a = 7
READ the question. Then try to eliminate some of the answer choices.
Use number sense:
When you add, you get a greater number than what you started with. Since
X + 7 = 15, 15 must be greater than x, or x must be less than 15. Since 22
and 15 are not less than 15, you can eliminate answer choices A and B.
The correct answer choice is C.
EXAMPLE
What is the value of the expression 18x + 6 for x = 5?
CD 90 eg) 96 CS) 191 CD 198
LOOK at the choices. Then try to eliminate some of the answer choices.
Use mental math:
Estimate the value of the expression. Round 18 to 20 to make the
multiplication easier.
20x + 6
20(5) + 6
106
Substitute 5 for x.
Multiply. Then add.
Because you rounded up, the value of the expression should be less than
106. You can eliminate choices H and J because they are too large.
The correct answer choice is G.

Vocabulary Connections
To become familiar with some of the
vocabulary terms in the chapter, consider
the following. You may refer to the chapter,
the glossary, or a dictionary if you like.
1 . The word commou means "belonging to
or shared by two things." How can you use
this definition to explain what the least
common multiple of two numbers is?
2. Wlien something is relative, it is "carried
back" to or compared to certain values. A
prime number is only divisible by itself and
one. If two numbers are relatively prime
and neither are prime numbers, how do
you think they relate to each other?
3. A decimal is a number that has digits
to the right of the decimal point. What
might you predict about those digits in
a repeating decimal?

LESSON 21 I Negative
EXTEiysioN J Exponents
When a natural number
has a positive exponent, the
value of the power is greater
than or equal to 1. Wlien a
natural number has a negative
exponent, the value of the
power is less than or equal to 1.
When any natural number has
a zero exponent, the value of
the power is equal to 1.
Notice: The negative exponent
becomes positive when it is
moved to the denominator of the fraction.

REMEMBER
• Adding or subtracting zero does not
change the value of an expression.
You can model integer addition by using integer chips. Yellow chips
represent positive numbers and red chips represent negative numbers.
Activity
Wlien you model adding numbers with the same sign, you can count
the total number of chips to find the sum.
The total number of
positive cliips is 7.
Tlie total number of
negative chips is 7.
3 + 4 = 7
O Use integer chips to find each sum.
a. 2 + 4 b. 2 + (4)
3 + (4) = 7
c. 6 + 3
d. 5 + (4)
Wlien you model adding numbers with different signs, you cannot count
the chips to find their sum.
J + _.! = 2 and ^ + H = 2
but ) + B = A red chip and a yellow chip make a neutral pair.
When you model adding a positive and a negative number, you need to
remove all of the neutral pairs that you can find — that is, all pairs of 1 red
chip and 1 yellow chip. These pairs have a value of zero, so they do not
affect the sum.
78 Chapter 2 Integers and Rational Numbers
You cannot just count the colored chips
to find their sum.
3+ (4) =
Before you count the chips, you need to remove all of the zero pairs.
When you remove the zero pairs,
there is one red chio left.

Subtracting
J Integers
During flight, the space shuttle may
be exposed to temperatures as low as
250 "F and as high as 3,000 °F.
To find the difference in these
temperatures, you need to know how
to subtract integers with different signs.
You can model tlie difference between
two integers using a number line. When
you subtract a positive number, the
difference is less than the original
number, so you move to the left. To
subtract a negative number, move to
the rigln.
(EXAMPLE
[ 1 J Modeling integer Subtraction
Use a number line to find each difference.
If the number being
subtracted is less
than the number it
is subtracted from,
the answer will be
positive. If the
number being
subtracted is greater,
the answer will be
negative.

• Choose a method of computation
Wlien you know the operation you must use and \ou know exactly
which numbers to use, a calculator might be tiie easiest way to
solve a problem. Sometimes, such as when the numbers are small
or are multiples of 10, it may be quicker to use mental math.
Sometimes, you have to write the numbers to see how they relate
in an equation. When you are working an equation, using a pencil
and paper is the simplest method to use because you can see each
step as you go.
For each problem, tell whether you would use a calculator, mental
math, or pencil and paper to solve it. Explain your answer. Then
solve the problem.

A prime number is a whole number
greater than 1 that has exactly two
factors, 1 and itself. Three is a prime
number because its only factors are
1 and 3.
A composite number is a whole number that has more than two
factors. Six is a composite number because it has more than two
factors — 1, 2, 3, and 6. The number 1 has exactly one factor and is
neither prime nor composite.
EXAMPLE [ij Identifying Prime and Composite Numbers
Tell whether each number is prime or composite.
For a review of
factors, see Skills
Bank p. SB6.
A 19
The factors of 19 are
1 and 19.
So 19 is prime.
B 20
The factors of 20 are
1,2,4,5, 10, and 20.
So 20 is composite.
A composite number can be written as the product of its prime
factors. This is called the prime factorization of the number. You can
use a factor tree to find the prime factors of a composite number.

The maintenance schedule on
Kendra's pickup truck shows that
the tires should be rotated every
7,500 miles and that the oil filter
should be replaced every 5,000
miles. Wliat is the lowest mileage
at which both services are due at
the same time? To find the answer,
you can use least common Duiltiples.
A multiple of a number is tlie
product of that number and a
nonzero whole number. Some
multiples of 7,500 and 5,000 are
as follows:
7,500: 7,500, 15,000, 22,500, 30,000, 37,500, 45,000, . . .
5,000: 5,000, 10,000, 15,000, 20,000, 25,000, 30,000
A common multiple of two or more numbers is a number that
is a multiple of each of the given numbers. So 15,000 and 30,000 are
common multiples of 7,500 and 5,000.
The least common multiple (LCM) of two or more numbers is the
common multiple with the least value. The LCM of 7,500 and 5,000
is 15,000. This is the lowest mileage at which both services are due at
the same time.

tLook Back
• Check that your answer is reasonable
In some situations, such as when you are looking for an estimate
or completing a multiplechoice question, check to see whether
a solution or answer is reasonably accurate. One way to do this
is by rounding the numbers to the nearest multiple of 10 or 100,
depending on how large the numbers are. Sometimes it is useful
to round one number up and another down.
t
Read each problem, and determine whether the given solution is too
high, is too low, or appears to be correct. Explain your answer.

Magic Squares
A magic square is a grid with numbers, such that the numbers in
each row, column, and diagonal have the same "magic" sum.
Test the square at right to see an example of this.
You can use a magic square to do some amazing calculations.
Cover a block of four squares (2 x 2) with a piece of paper.
There is a way you can find the sum of these squares without
looking at them. Try to find it. {Hiiit:\Nhat number in the
magic square can you subtract from the magic sum to give
you the sum of the numbers in the block? Wliere is that
number located?)
Here's the answer: To find the sum of any block of four numbers,
take 65 (the magic sum) and subtract from it the number that is
diagonally two squares away from a corner of the block.

vocabulary terms in the chapter, consider
the following. You may refer to the chapter,
the glossary, or a dictionary if you like.
1. Wlien two things are compatible, they
make a good match. You can match a
fraction with a number that is easier to
work with, such as 1, ;^, or 0, by rounding
up or down. How could you use these
compatible numbers to estimate the
sums and differences of fractions?
2. When fractions are reciprocals of each
other, they have a special relationship. The
fractions  and  are reciprocals of each
other. What do you think the relationship
between reciprocals is?
Where You're Going

Jessie earned $26.00 for babysitting. She
wants to use the money to buy a ticicet to
an aquarium for $14.75 and a souvenir
Tshirt for $13.20.
To find out if Jessie lias enough money to
buy both items, you can use estimation. To
estimate the total cost of the ticket and the
Tshirt, round each price to the nearest dollar,
or integer. Then add the rounded values.
$14.75 7> 5, so round to $15.
$13.20 2 < 5, so round to $13.

I $13

■I ■. ^'^^
the Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta, GA, is the
world's largest aquarium, with more than
8.1 million gallons of water.
The estimated cost is $28, so Jessie does not have enough money to
buy both items.
To estimate decimal sums and differences, round each decimal to the
nearest integer and then add or subtract.

Guidelines for Using Compatible Numbers
When multiplying . . .
round numbers to the nearest
nonzero integer or to numbers
that are easy to multiply.
When dividing . . .
round numbers so that they
divide without leaving a remainder.
EXAMPLE [zj Estimating Products and Quotients of Decimals
Use compatible numbers to estimate.

A prime number has
exactly two factors,
1 and itself. So the

Estimate
37 is a prime number, so round to 36.
9 divides into 36 without a remainder.
Estimate
When you solve problems, using an estimate can help you decide
whether your answer is reasonable.
EXAMPLE [ij School Application
On a math test, a student worked the problem 6.2)55.9 and got
the answer 0.9. Use estimation to check whether the answer is
reasonable.
6.2 . 6
55.9 60
60 ^ 6 = 10
2 < 5, so round to 6.
6 divides into 60 without a remainder.
Estimate
The estimate is more than ten times the student's answer, so 0.9 is not
a reasonable answer.
Tfimk and Discuss
1. Explain whether your estimate wall be greater than or less than
the actual answer when you round botli numbers down in an addition
or multiplication problem.
2. Describe a situation in which you would want your estimate
to be greater than the actual amotmt.

Sandy and her family traveled from
Columbus, Ohio, to Chicago, Illinois,
to visit Millennium Park. They used
14.95 gallons of gas for their
358.8mile drive.
To find the number of miles per gallon
the car got, you will need to divide a
decimal by a decimal.

When you divide two numbers, you can multiply both numbers by
the same power often without changing the final answer.
Multiply both 0.6 and 0.3 by 10: 0.6 • 10 = 6 and 0.3 • 10 = 3
0.6 H 0.3 = 2 and 6^3 = 2
By multiplying both numbers by the same power often, you can
make the divisor an integer. Dividing by an integer is much easier
than dividing by a decimal.

PROBLEM
PROBLEM SOLVING APPLICATION
Yancey wants to buy a new snowboard that costs $396.00. If she
earns S8.25 per hour at work, how many hours must she work to
earn enough money to buy the snowboard?
P^ Understand the Problem
Rewrite the question as a statement.
• Find the number of hours Yancey must work to earn $396.00.
List the important information:
• Yancey earns $8.25 per hour.
• Yancey needs $396.00 to buy
a snowboard.
Make a Plan
Yancey's pay is equal to lier
hourly pay times the number
of hours she works. Since you know how much money she needs to
earn, you can write an equation with /; being the number of hours.
8.25/; = 396
*Q Solve
8.25/; = 396
—^ = 1^ Use the Division Property of Equality.
h = 48
Yancev must work 48 hours.
Q Look Back
You can round 8.25 to 8 and 396 to 400 to estimate how many hours
Yancey needs to work.
400 H 8 = 50
So 48 hours is a reasonable answer.

Civil Rights In Educatlow Heritage Trail The roots of tree Virginia
public education in the United States can be traced to southern
Virginia. A selfguided driving tour of the area takes visitors to
more than 40 schools, libraries, and other sites that played a
key role in the story of civil rights in education.
The Wilson family is driving the Civil Rights in Education Heritage
Trail. Use the map to solve these problems about their trip.
1 . The Wilsons drive from Appomattox
to Petersburg on the first day of their
trip. How many miles do they drive?
2. On the second day of the trip, they
drive from Petersburg to South
Hill. How much farther do they
drive on the first day than on the
second day?
3. The distance from South Boston
to Halifax is I of the distance from
Farmville to Nottoway. What is the
distance from South Boston to
Halifax?
4. The entire trip from Appomattox to Halifax is 202. 1 miles. The
Wilsons' car gets 21.5 miles to the gallon. How many gallons of

Other interesting number patterns involve cyclic numbers. Cyclic
numbers sometimes occur when a fraction converts to a repeating
nonterminating decimal. One of the most interesting cyclic
numbers is produced by converting the fraction 4 to a decimal.
1 = 0.142857142857142...
Multiplying 142857 by the numbers 16 produces the same digits
in a different order.
1 • 142857 = 142857
2 • 142857 = 285714
3 • 142857 = 428571
4 • 142857 = 571428
5 • 142857 = 714285
6 • 142857 = 857142
Fraction Action
Roll four number cubes and use the numbers
to form two fractions. Add the fractions and
try to get a sum as close to 1 as possible. To
determine your score on each turn, find the
difference between the sum of your fractions
and 1 . Keep a running total of your score as
you play. The winner is the player with the
lowest score at the end of the game.

Writing Strategy: Use Your Own Words
Using your own words to explain a concept can help you understand
the concept. For example, learning how to solve equations might seem
difficult if the textbook does not explain solving equations in the same
way that you would.
As you work through each lesson:
• Identify the important ideas from the explanation in the book.
• Use your own words to explain these ideas.
What Sara Reads
An equation is a
mathematical statement
that two expressions are
equal in value.
Wlien an equation contahis
a variable, a value of the
variable that makes the
statement true is called a
solution of the equation.
If a variable is multiplied
by a number, you can often
use division to isolate the
variable. Di\ide both sides of
the equation by the number.
What Sara Writes
/In eciuafion has an equal sicjii
to show that f\A/o expressions
are ecfual to each other.
The solution of an equation
that has a variable in it is the
number that the variable is
equal to.
When the variable is multiplied
by a number, you can undo the
multiplication and qet
the variable alone by
dividincj both sides
of the equation by
the number.
TVy This
Rewrite each sentence in your own words.
1. When solving addition equations involving integers, isolate the
variable by adding opposites.
2. When you solve equations that have one operation, you use an
inverse operation to isolate the variable.

Density is a ratio that compares a
substance's mass to its volume. If you
are given the density of ice, you can
find the mass of 3 mL of ice by solving
a proportion.
For two ratios, the product of the
first term in one ratio and the
second term in the other is a
cross product . If the cross products
are equal, then the ratios
form a proportion.
5 • 6 = 30
2 • 15 = 30
Ice floats in water because the density of ice is
less tfian the density of water.
CROSS PRODUCTS^
In the proportion j — ,< where /; ?t o and d ^ 0,
the cross products, a • d and b • r, are equal.
You can use cross products to solve proportions with variables.
EXAMPLE {ij Solving Proportions Using Cross Products

60 = 3p
60 _^

' 20 = p
The cross products are equal.
Multiply.
Divide each side by 3.
It is important to set up proportions correctly. Each ratio must
compare corresponding quantities in the same order. Suppose a boat
travels 16 miles in 4 hours and 8 miles in .v hours at the same speed.
Either of these proportions could represent this situation.

PROBLEM SOLVING APPLICATION
Density is the ratio of a substance's mass to its volume. The
density of ice is 0.92 g/mL. What is the mass of 3 mL of ice?
pl> Understand the Problem
Rewrite the question as a statement.
• Find the mass, in grams, of 3 mL of ice.
List the important information:
1 . mass (B)
• densit)' = — j ~
■^ volume (mL)
density of ice =
092 g
1 mL
Make a Plan
Set up a proportion using the given information. Let ni represent the
mass of 3 mL of ice.
092 g ^ _m_ *_ mass
1 mL 3 mL < — volume
•HI Solve
Solve the proportion.
^^^pX^ Write the proportion.
/// • 1 = 0.92 • 3 The cross products are equal,
in = 2.76 Multiply.
The mass of 3 mL of ice is 2.76 g.
Q Look Back
Since the density of ice is 0.92 g/mL, each milliliter of ice has a mass
of a little less than 1 g. So 3 mL of ice should have a mass of a little
less than 3 g. Since 2.76 is a little less than 3, the answer is reasonable.
Think and Discuss
1. Explain how the term cross product can help you remember how
to solve a proportion.

Write a proportion.
The cross products are equal.
480 g = 0.48 kg
480 = l,OOO.v
0.48 = .V
Since 0.48 kg > 0.05 kg, Mai's rock has the greater mass.
0.48  0.05 = 0.43 Subtract to find how/ much greater the
mass of Mai's rock is.
The mass of Mai's rock is 0.43 kg greater than the mass of Brian's rock.

Similar figures are figures that have the same shape but not
necessarily the same size. You can make similar rectangles by
increasing or decreasing both dimensions of a rectangle while keeping
the ratios of the side lengths proportional. Modeling similar rectangles
using square tiles can help you solve proportions.
Activity
A rectangle made of square tiles measures 5 tiles long and 2 tiles wide.
What is the length of a similar rectangle whose width is 6 tiles?
Use tiles to make a 5 x 2 rectangle.

r ^
Add tiles to increase the width of the rectangle
to 6 tiles.
Notice that there are now 3 sets of 2 tiles along
the width of the rectangle because 2x3 = 6.
The width of the new rectangle is three times greater than the width of the
original rectangle. To keep the ratios of the side measures proportional, the
length must also be three times greater than the length of the original
rectangle.
/' Y Y ^

Add tiles to increase the length
of the rectangle to 15 tiles.
The length of the similar rectangle is 15 tiles.

Vocabulary
similar
corresponding sides
corresponding angles
Similar figures are figures that have the same shape but not
necessarily the same size. The symbol ~ means "is similar to.
Corresponding angles of two or more similar polygons are in the
same relative position. Corresponding sides of two or more similar
polygons are in the same relative position. When naming similar
figures, list the corresponding angles in the same order. For the
triangles above, AABC ~ ADEF.
EXAMPLE

correctly, your scale drawings and models will be similar to the actual
objects they represent.
Activity 1
Make a scale drawing of a classroom and items with the following
dimensions.
Classroom
6 Student Desks
Teacher's Desk
Aquarium
1 2 ft X 20 ft
2 ft X 3 ft
2 ft X 6 ft
5 ft X 2 ft
You can use graph paper for your drawing. When making a scale drawing,
you can use any scale you wish. For this activity, use a scale in which 2 squares
represent 1 foot. To convert each measurement, multiply the number of feet by 2.
This means that the room measures 24 squares (2 • 12 ft) by 40 squares (2 • 20 ft).
Convert the other measurements in the table using the same scale.

Water Works
You have three glasses: a 3ounce glass, a 5ounce glass,
and an 8ounce glass. The 8ounce glass is full of water,
and the other two glasses are empty. By pouring water
from one glass to another, how can you get exactly 6
ounces of water in one of the glasses? The stepbystep
solution is described below.
Pour the water from the 8 oz glass into the 5 oz glass.
Q Pour the water from the 5 oz glass into the 3 oz glass.
Q Pour the water from the 3 oz glass into the 8 oz glass.
You now have 6 ounces of water in the 8ounce glass.
Start again, but this time try to get exactly 4 ounces of
water in one glass. {Hint: Find a way to get 1 otmce of
water. Start by pouring water into the 3ounce glass.)
Next, using 3ounce, 8ounce, and 1 1 ounce glasses, try to get
exacdy 9 ounces of water in one glass. Start widi the 11 ounce
glass full of water. {Hi)it: Start by pouring water into the 8ounce glass.]
Look at the sizes of the glasses in each problem. The volume of
the third glass is the sum of the volumes of the first two glasses:
3 + 5 = 8 and 3 + 8 = 11. Using any amounts for the two smaller
glasses, and starting with the largest glass full, you can get any
multiple of the smaller glass's volume. Try it and see.

Each card in a deck of cards has a ratio on one
side. Place each card face down. Each player
or team takes a turn flipping over two cards.
If the ratios on the cards are equivalent, the
player or team can keep the pair, if not, the
next player or team flips two cards. After every card
has been turned over, the player
or team with the most pairs wins.

Where You've Been
Previously, you
• graphed ordered pairs of non
negative rational numbers on a
coordinate plane.
• used tables to generate formulas
representing relationships.
• formulated equations from
problem situations.
In This Chapter
You will study
• plotting and identifying
ordered pairs of integers on a
coordinate plane.
• graphing to demonstrate
relationships between data sets.
• describing the relationship
between the terms in a
sequence and their positions in
a sequence.
• formulating problem situations
when given a simple equation.
Where You're Going
You can use the skills
learned in this chapter
• to sketch or interpret a graph
that shows how a measurement
such as distance, speed, cost, or
temperature changes over time.
e to interpret patterns and make
predictions in science, business,
and personal finance.

Vocabulary Connections
To become familiar with some of the
vocabulary terms in the chapter, consider the
following. You may refer to the chapter, the
glossary, or a dictionary if you like.
1. A sequence is an ordered list of numbers,
such as 2, 4, 6, and 8. Can you make up a
sequence with a pattern and describe the
pattern?
2. The word "linear" comes from the word
line. Wliat do you think the graph of a
linear equation looks like?
3. An origin is the point at which something
begins. Can you describe where to begin
when you plot a point on a coordinate
plane? Can you guess why the point where
the Xaxis and yaxis cross is called the
origin ?
4. Quadrupeds are animals with four feet,
and a quadrilateral is a foursided figure.
A coordinate plane has sections called
quadrants . Wliat does this word imply
about the number of sections in a
coordinate plane?

PROBLEM SOLVING APPLICATION
Maili and Katrina traveled 10 miles from Maili's house to the
movie theater. They watched a movie, and then they traveled
5 miles farther to a restaurant to eat lunch. After eating they
returned to Maili's house. Sketch a graph to show the distance
from Maili's house compared to time. Use your graph to find the
total distance traveled.
^ Understand the Problem
The answer will be the total distance that Katrina and Maili traveled.
List the important information:
• The friends traveled 10 miles from Maili's house to the theater.
• They traveled an additional 5 miles and then ate lunch.
• They returned to Maili's house.
Make a Plan
Sketch a graph that represents the situation. Then use the graph to
find the total distance Katrina and Maili traveled.
•U Solve
The distance from Maili's house
increases from to 10 miles
when the friends travel to the
theater. The distance does not
change while the friends watch
the movie and eat lunch. The
distance increases from 10 to 15
miles when they go to the
restaurant. The distance
decreases from 15 to miles
when they return home.

The theater is 10 miles away, so the friends must have traveled
twice that distance just to go to the theater and return. The answer,
30 miles, is reasonable since it is greater than 20 miles.

Rube Goldberg, a famous cartoonist, invented machines that perform
ordinary taslcs in extraordinary ways. Each machine operates according
to a aile, or a set of steps, to produce a particular output.
In mathematics, a function operates according to a rule to produce
exactly one output value for each input value. The input is the value
Interactivities Online ► substituted into the function. The output is the value that results from the
substitution of a given input into the fimction.
A function can be represented by a rule
written in words, such as "double the
number and then add nine to the result,"
or by an equation with two variables. One
variable represents the input, and the
other represents the output.

Many natural things, such as the
arrangement of seeds in the head
of a sunflower, follow the pattern
of sequences.
A sequence is an ordered list of numbers.
Each number in a sequence is called a term .
When the sequence follows a pattern, the
terms in the sequence are the output values
of a function, and the value of each term
depends on its position in the sequence.
You can use a variable, such as /;, to represent a number's position
in a sequence.

y (value of term)

In an arithmetic sequence , the terms of the sequence differ by the same
nonzero number. This difference is called the common difference . In
a geometric sequence , each term is multiplied by the same amount to
get the next term in the sequence.

The graph below shows how far a kayak
travels down a river if the kayak is
moving at a rate of 2 miles per hour.
The graph is linear because all of the
points fall on a line. It is part of the
graph of a linear equation.
A linear equation is an equation ^
whose graph is a line. The solutions
of a linear equation are the points
that make up its graph. Linear
equations and linear graphs can be
different representations of linear functions.
A linear function is a fimction whose graph
is a nonvertical line.
Only two points are needed to draw the graph
of a linear function. However, graphing a third
point serves as a check. You can use a fimction

A nonlinear function is a function whose graph is not a straight line.
MM Identifying Graphs of Nonlinear Functions
Tell whether the graph is linear or nonlinear.
The graph is not a straight
line, so it is nonlinear.
The graph is a straight
line, so it is linear.
Helpfulfiyi
Exponential and
quadratic functions
are nonlinear. For
information on these
relationships, see
pp. SB18SB19 in the
Skills Bank.
You can use a function table to determine whetlier ordered pairs describe
a linear or a nonlinear relationship.
For a function that has a linear relationship, when the difference between
each successive input value is constant, the difference between each
corresponding output value is constant.
For a function that has a nonlinear relationship, when the difference
between each successive input value is constant, the difference between
each corresponding output value varies.

EXTEiusiofll Inverse Variation
Vocabulary
inverse variation
Inverse variation is a relationship between two variables that can be
written in the form y = ~, or xy = k, where k is a nonzero constant and
.V ?t 0.
y = — xy = k
In an inverse variation, the product of x and )' is constant.
EXAMPLE MJ Identifying an Inverse Variation
Tell whether each relationship is an inverse variation. Explain.

You can read inverse
variation as "y
varies inversely as
x" or "y is inversely
proportional to x."

y
12 8 6
2(12) = 24 3(8) = 24 4(6) = 24 Substitute for x and y.
The product for xj' is constant, so the relationship is an inverse

y 80 , 75 70
5(80) = 400 7(75) = 525 9(70) = 630
The product for .xy is not constant, so the relationship is not an
inverse variation.
EXAIVIPLE 2i Geometry Application
David is building a rectangular flowerbed. He has soil to cover
48 square feet. The flowerbed can be 4, 6, or 12 feet long. For
each length x, find the width of the flowerbed y to use all the
soil.
The area A of the flowerbed is a constant k. The length .v times die width
y must equal the area, 48. The equation xy  48 is an inverse variation.
xy = k xy = k xy = k Use xy = /c.
4y =48 By = 48 12y = 48 Substitute for x and l<.
y = 12 y—8 y—^ Solve for y.
David can build a flowerbed that is 4 ft long by 12 ft wide, 6 ft long by
8 ft wide, or 12 ft long by 4 ft wide.

An inverse variation can also be
identified by its graph. Since k is a
nonzero constant, xy + 0. Therefore,
neither .v nor y can equal 0, and no
solution points will be on the .vaxis
oryaxis.

Vocabulary Connections
To become familiar with some of the
vocabulary terms in the chapter, consider the
following. You may refer to the chapter, the
glossary, or a dictionary if you like.
1 . The Italian word cento and the French term
cent mean "hundred." What do you think
percent means?
2. The word interest stems from Latin Unter
+ esse) and means "to be between" and "to
make a difference." In business, interest is
an amount collected or paid for the use of
money. How can you relate the Latin roots
and meanings to the business definition of
interest?
3. Principal is the amount of money
deposited or borrowed. Interest builds
upon the principal. How might common
definitions oi principal, such as "leader of
a school" and "a matter of primary
importance," help you remember this
business meaning of principal ?

Another way to estimate percents is to find 1% or 10% of a number.
You can do this by moving the decimal point in the number.
1% of 45: 45.0
= 0.45
To find 7% of a number,
move the decimal point
two places to the left.
10% of 45: 45.0
= 4.5
To find 10% of a number,
move the decimal point
one place to the left.
EXAMPLE [T) Estimating with Simple Percents
Use 1% or 10% to estimate the percent of each number.
3%) of 59
59 is about 60, so find 3% of 60.
I%of60 = 60.0 = 0.60
3% of 60 = 3 0.60 = 1.8
3%of59isabout 1.8.
3% equals 3 • 1%.
B 18% of 45
18% is about 20%, so find 20% of 45.
10% of 45 = 45.0 = 4.5
20% of 45 = 2 • 4.5 = 9.0

how much money should they leave for a 15% tip?
Since $25.85 is about $26, find 15% of $26.
15% = 10% + 5% Think: 15% is 10% plus 5%.
10% of $26 = $2.60
5% of $26 = $2.60 ^ 2 = $1.30 5% is  of 10%, so divide $2.60 by 2.
$2.60 + $1.30 = $3.90 Add the 10% and 5% estimates.
Eric and Selena should leave about $3.90 for a 15% tip.

When you keep money in a savings
account, your money earns interest.
Interest is an amount of money
that is charged for borrowing or
using money, or an amount of
money that is earned by saving
money. For example, the banlc pays
you interest to use your money to
conduct its business. Likewise, when
you borrow money from the bank, tlie
bank collects interest that is paid annually
on its loan to you.
One type of interest, called simple interest, is money paid only on
the principal. The principal is the amount of money deposited or
borrowed. To solve problems involving simple interest that is paid
annually, you can use the following formula.

PROBLEM SOLVING APPLICATION
Olivia deposits $7,000 in an account that earns 7% simple interest
paid annually. About how long will it take for her account balance
to reach S8,000?
n> Understand the Problem
Rewrite the question as a statement:
• Find the number of years it will take for the balance to reach $8,000.
List the important information:
• The principal is $7,000.
• The interest rate is 7%.
• Her account balance will be $8,000.
Make a Plan
Olivia's account balance i4 includes the principal plus the interest:
A — P + I. Once you solve for /, you can use I = P • r • r to find the time.
*e] Solve
A^ P+ [

Divide each side by 490.
Q Look Back
The account earns 7% of $7,000, which is $490, per year. So after
2 years, the interest will be $980, giving a total balance of $7,980.
An answer of just over 2 years to reach $8,000 makes sense.

Vocabulary Connections
To become familiar with some of the
vocabulary terms in the chapter, consider
the following. You may refer to the chapter,
the glossary, or a dictionary if you like.
1. The word median comes from the Latin
word medius, meaning "middle." What is
the median value in a set of data? What
other words come from this Latin root?
2. Scatter can mean "to spread out" or "to
occur at random." What might the data
points on a scatter plot look like?
3. Frequency is a measure of how often an
event occurs or the number of like objects
that are in a group. What do you think a
frequency table might show?

IMAX ' theaters, witli their huge
screens and powerful sound
systems, make viewers feel as
if they are in the middle of the
action.
To see how common it is for
an IMAX movie to attract such
a large number of viewers, you
could use a frequency table.
A frequency table is a way to
organize data values into
categories or groups. By including
a cumulative frequency column
in your table, you can keep a
running total of the number
of data items.

Step 1: Choose a scale that includes all of the data values. Then
separate the scale into equal intervals.
Step 2: Find the number of
data values in each
interval. Write these
numbers in the
"Frequency" column.
Step 3: Find the cumulative
frequency for each
row by adding all
the frequency values
that are above or in that row.
The number of films that earned under $40 million is the
cumulative frequency of the first two rows: 17.

Similar to a stemandleaf plot, a line plot can be used to show how
many times each data value occurs. Line plots use a number line and
X's to show frequency. By looking at a line plot, you can quickly see
the distribution, or spread, of the data.

affect the mean, median, and mode.
To crack secret messages in code, you can

The mode, along with the mean and the
median, is a measure oi central tendency
used to represent the "middle" of a data set.
• The mean is the sum of the data values
divided by the ntmiber of data items.
AGf Mf ai La^JG6,1^^A^J« Coca kj^s?. ' wj: vi"

• The median is the middle value of an odd number of data items
arranged in order. For an even number of data items, the median is
the mean of the two middle values.
• The mode is the value or values that occur most often. Wlien all
the data values occur the same number of times, there is no mode.
The range of a set of data is the difference between the greatest and
least values.

15
The mean is 4.2.
Most of the people exercised fewer than 4 hours, so the mean does
not describe the data set best.
median:
0, 1, 1, 1, 1,2.2,2,3,3,5,7,7, 14, 14
The median is 2.
The median best describes the data set because a majority of the
data is clustered around the data value 2.
mode:
The greatest number of X's occur above the number 1 on the
line plot.
The mode is 1.
The mode represents only 4 of the 15 people. The mode does not
describe the entire data set.
In the data set in Example 2, the value 14 is much greater than the
other values in the set. An extreme value such as this is called an
outlier. Outliers can greatly affect the mean of a data set.

use a scale that includes
all of the data values
and separate the scale
into equal intervals.
Use these intervals on
the horizontal axis of
your histogram.
Step 2: Choose an appropriate scale and

greatest value on the scale should
be at least as great as the greatest
frequency.
Step 3: Draw a bar for each interval.

ways in which the wording of questions can influence survey results,
A circle graph, also called a pie chart, shows how
a set of data is divided into parts. The entire circle
contains 100% of the data. Each sector, or slice,
of the circle represents one part of the entire
data set.
Vocabulary

EXAMPLE
The circle graph
compares the number
of species in each group
of echinoderms.
Echinoderms are marine
animals that live on the
ocean floor. The name
ecliiuoderm means
"spinyskinned."
Life Science Application
Use the circle graph to answer each question.
A Which group of echinoderms includes the greatest number of
species?
The sector for brittle stars and basket stars is the largest, so this
group includes the greatest number of species.
B Approximately what percent of echinoderm species are sea stars?
The sector for sea stars makes up about onefourth of the circle.
Since the circle shows 100% of the data, about onefourth of
100%, or 25%, of echinoderm species are sea stars.
C Which group is made up of fewer species — sea cucumbers or
sea urchins and sand dollars?
The sector for sea urchins and sand dollars is smaller than the
sector for sea cucumbers. This means there are fewer species of
sea urchins and sand dollars than species of sea cucumbers.

of the two middle
values.
To make a boxandwhisker plot, first
divide the data into four parts using
quartik's. The median, or middle quartile,
divides the data into a lower half and an
upper half. 'Hie median of the lower half
is the lower quartile , and the median
of the upper half is the upper quartile .

The interquartile range of a data set is the difference between tlie
lower and upper quartiles. It tells how large the spread of data around
the median is.
You can use a boxandwhisker plot to analyze how data in a set are
distributed. You can also use boxandwhisker plots to help you compare
two sets of data.

A Which fishing charter has a greater median?
The median number offish caught on ReeltoReel Charters,
about 54, is greater than the median number of fish caught
on Mud Puppy Charters, about 51.
B Which fishing charter has a greater interquartile range?
The length of the box in a boxandwhisker plot indicates the
interquartile range. ReeltoReel Charters has a longer box, so
it has a greater interquartile range.
C Which fishing charter appears to be more predictable in the
number of fish that might be caught on a fishing trip?
The range and interquartile range are smaller for Mud Puppy
Charters, which means that there is less variation in the data.
So the number offish caught on Mud Puppy Charters is more
predictable.

Solve
• Choose an operation: addition or subtraction
In order to decide whether to add or subtract to solve a problem,
you need to determine what action is taking place in the problem.
If you are combining or putting together numbers, you need to
add. If you are taking away or finding how far apart two numbers
are, you need to subtract.
Determine the action in each problem. Then determine which
operation could be used to solve the problem. Use the table for
problems 5 and 6.

You can use a Venn diagram to display relationships in data.
Use ovals, circles, or other shapes to represent individual data sets.
Activity 1
At Landry Middle School, 127 students play a team sport, 145 play a
musical instrument, and 31 do both. Make a Venn diagram to display
the relationship in the data.
O Draw and label two overlapping circles to represent
the sets of students who play a team sport and a
musical instrument. Label one "Team sport" and
the other "Musical instrument."
Team
sport
Musical
instrument
Write "31" in the area where the circles overlap.
This is the number of students who play a musical
instrument and a team sport.
To find the number of students who play a team sport only, begin
with the number of students who play a team sport, 127, and
subtract the number of students who do both, 31.
team sport  both = team sport only
127  31 = 96
Use the same process to find the number of students who play a
musical instrument only.
musical instrument  both = musical instrument only

7.4.4 Analyze data displays, including ways that they can be misleading. Analyze
ways in which the wording of questions can influence survey results.
In 2002, there were claims that
Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD),
or Mad Elk Disease, was spreading
westward across North America.
In order to verify claims such as
these, the elk population had to
be tested.
Vocabulary
population
sample
random sample
convenience sample
biased sample
Helpful«i
A random sample is
more likely to be
representative of a
population than a
convenience sample is.
When information is gathered
about a group, such as all the
elk in North America, the entire
group is called the population.
Because testing each member of
a large group can be difficult or
impossible, researchers often
study a part of the population,
called a sample .
For a random sample , members of the population are chosen at
random. This gives eveiy member of the population an equal chance
of being chosen. A convenience sample is based on members of the
population that are readily available, such as 30 elk in a wildlife
preservation area.
EXAMPLE lj Analyzing Sampling Methods
Determine which sampling method will better represent the entire
population. Justify your answer.
Football Game: Student Attendance
Sampling Method
Results of Survey
Arnie surveys 80 students by randomly
choosing names from the school directory.
62% attend football
games
Vic surveys 28 students that were sitting
near him during lunch.
81% attend football
games
Arnie's method produces results that better represent the entire
student population because he uses a random sample.
Vic's method produces results that are not as representative of the
entire student population because he uses a convenience sample.
418 Chapter 7 Collecting, Displaying, and Analyzing Data [ViJa:;] Lesson Tutorials Online
A biased sample does not fairly represent the population. A study of
50 elk belonging to a breeder could be biased because the breeder's elk
might be less likely to have Mad Elk Disease than elk in the wild.
EXAMPLE [T] Identifying Potentially Biased Samples
Determine whether each sample may be biased. Explain.
A The first 50 people exiting a movie are surveyed to find out wfhat
type of movie people in the town like to see.
The sample is biased. It is likely that not ever\'one in the town
likes to see the same type of movie that those 50 people just saw.
B A librarian randomly chooses 100 books from the library's
database to calculate the average length of a library book.
The sample is not biased. It is a random sample.
Given data about a random sample, you can use proportional reasoning to
make predictions or verif>' claims about the entire population.
EXAMPLE [T] Verifying Claims Based on Statistical Data
emembei''
In the proportion
f = §, the cross
products, a ■ d and
b • c are equal.
A biologist estimates that more than 700 of the 4,500 elk at a
wildlife preserve are infected with a parasite. A random sample
of 50 elk shows that 8 of them are infected. Determine whether
the biologist's estimate is likely to be accurate.
Set up a proportion to predict the total number of infected elk.
infected elk in sample _ infected elk in population
size of sample
size of population
50 4,500
• 4,500 = 50 • .V
36,000 = 50.V
36,000 _ 50.V
Let X represent the number of
infected elk at the preserve.
The cross products are equal.
Multiply.
Divide each side by 50.
50 50
720 = A
Based on the sample, you can predict that there are 720 infected elk
at the preserve. The biologist's estimate is likely to be accurate.

The supersaurus, one of the largest known dinosaurs, could weigh as
much as 55 tons and grow as long as 100 feet from head to tail. The
tyrannosaurus, a large meateating dinosaur, was about onethird the
length of the supersaurus.
Two sets of data, such as the length and the weight of dinosaurs, may
be related. To find out, you can make a scatter plot of the data values
in each set. A scatter plot has two number lines, called axes — one for
each set of data values. Each point on the scatter plot represents a
pair of data values. These points may appear to be scattered or may
cluster in the shape of a line or a curve.
EXAMPLE ]1 Making a Scatter Plot
Use the data to make a scatter
plot. Describe the relationship
between the data sets.
Step 1: Determine the scale and
interval for each axis.
Place units of length on
the horizontal axis and
units of weight on the
vertical axis.
Step 2: Plot a point for each pair of values.
Step 3: Label the axes and title the graph.
The scatter plot shows that a dinosaur's
weight tends to increase as its length
increases.

A correlation is the description of the relationship between two data sets.
There are three correlations that can describe data displayed in a scatter plot.
Positive Correlation Negative Correlation No Correlation
The values in both
data sets increase at
the same time.
The values in one
data set increase
as the values in the
other set decrease.
The values in both
data sets show no
pattern.

Advertisements and news articles
often use data to support a point.
Sometimes tlie data is presented in
a way that influences how the data
is interpreted. A data display that
distorts information in order to
persuade can be inisleading.
An axis in a graph can be "brolcen"
to make the graph easier to read.
However, a broken axis can also be
misleading. In the graph at right,
the cost per text message with
Company B looks like it is twice as
much as the cost with Company A.
In fact, the difference is only $0.01
per text message.

A ayptogram is a message written in code. One of the most common
types of codes is a substitution code, in which each letter of a text is
replaced with a different letter. The table shows one way to replace the
letters in a text to make a coded message.

With this code, the word MATH is written PJMB. You can also use the
table as a key to decode messages. Try decoding the following message.
J EJZ UZJSB OJX EKWQKH MN HLQSGIT HJMJ.
Suppose you want to crack a substitution code but are not given the key.
You can use letter frequencies to help you. The bar graph below shows
the number of times each letter of the English language is likely to
appear in a text of 100 letters.
etter Frequencies
A B C D E F G H I J
T U V W X Y Z
From the graph, you can see that E is the mode. In a coded text, the
letter that appears most frequently is likely to represent the letter E. The
letter that appears the second most frequently is likely to represent the
letter T. Count the number of times each letter appears in the following
message. Then use the letter frequencies and a bit of guesswork to
decode the message. (Hint: In this code, P represents the letter M.)

the following. You may refer to the chapter,
the glossary, or a dictionary if you like.
1 . Congruent comes from the Latin word
cougniere, meaning "to agree or
correspond." If two figures are congruent,
do you think they look the same or
different?
2. Polygon comes from the Greek words
polus, meaning "many," and gonia,
meaning "angle." What do you think
a shape called a polygon includes?
3. Rotation can mean "the act of spinning
or turning." How do you think a figure is
moved when you perform a rotation on it?

A number line is an
example of a line,
and a coordinate
plane is an example
of a plane.
Points, lines, and planes
are the most basic figures
of geometry. Otiier geometric
figures, such as line segments
and rays, are defined in terms
of these building bloci<s.
Artists often use basic geometric
figures when creating their
works. For example, Auguste
Herbin used line segments in
his painting called EigJ}t I,
which is shown at right.
A point is an exact location.
It is usually represented as a
dot, but it has no size at all.
•A point /4
Use a capital letter
to name a point.
A line is a straight path that
has no thickness and extends
forever in opposite directions.

line or a lowercase
letter to name a line.
A plane is a flat surface
that has no thickness

As an airplane takes off, the
path of the airplane forms an
angle with the ground.
An angle is formed by two rays
with a common endpoint. The
two rays are the sides of the
angle. The common endpoint
is the vertex.
Angles are measured in
degrees (°). An angle's measure
determines the type of angle it is.
A right angle is an angle that measures
exactly 90°. The symbol n indicates a right angle.
An acute angle is an angle that measures greater
than 0°and less than 90°.
An obtuse angle is an angle that measures
greater than 90° but less than 180°.

A straight angle is an angle that measures
exactly 180°.

You can name this
angle /.ABC, ^CBA,

The angle measures greater
than 90° but less than 180°,
so it is an obtuse angle.
The angle measures less

angle.
If the sum of the measures of two angles is 90°, then the angles are
complementary angles . If the sum of the measures of two angles is

Completed in 1893 for the Chicago World's
Fair, the first Ferris wheel could carry up to
2,160 people. George Ferris relied on the
idea of a circle when he modeled his design
on a bicycle wheel.
A circle is the set of all points in a plane
that are the same distance from a given
point, called the center of a circle .
A circle is named by its center. For
example, if point A is the center of a circle,
then the name of the circle is circle A.
There are special names for the different
parts of a circle.

A central angle of a circle is an
angle formed by two radii. A
sector of a circle is the part of the
circle enclosed by two radii and an
arc connecting them.
The sum of the measures of all of
the nonoverlapping central angles
in a circle is 360°. We say that there
are 360° in a circle.

Keep the Penny?
PROBLEM
SOLVING
The circle graph shows the results
of a survey to determine how
people feel about keeping the
penny. Find the central angle
measure of the sector that shows
the percent of people who are
against keeping the penny.
P!f* Understand the Problem
List the important information: source usa Today
• The percent of people who are against keeping the penny is 32%.
Make a Plan
The central angle measure of the sector that represents those people
against keeping the penny is 32% of the angle measure of the whole
circle. The angle measure of a circle is 360°. Since the sector is 32% of
the circle graph, the central angle measure is 32% of 360°.
32% of 360° = 0.32 360°
•1] Solve
0.32 • 360°= 115.2° Multiply.
The central angle of the sector measures 115.2°.
Q Look Back
The 32% sector is about onethird of the graph, and 120° is
onethird of 360°. Since 1 15.2° is close to 120°, the answer is
reasonable.

A circle graph can be used to compare data that are parts of a whole.
Activity
You can make a circle graph using information from a table.
At Booker Middle School, a survey was conducted to find the percent of
students who favor certain types of books. The results are shown in the
table below.
To make a circle graph, you need to find the size of each part of your graph.
Each part is a sector.
To find the size of a sector, you must find the measure of its angle. You do
this by finding what percent of the whole circle that sector represents.
Find the size of each sector.
a. Copy the table at right.
b. Find a decimal equivalent for
each percent given, and fill in the

Dilations
Vocabulary
dilation
EXAMPLE
Similar figures have
the same shape but
not necessarily the
same size.
You can use computer software
to dilate an image, such as a
photograph. A dilation is a
transformation that changes the
size, but not the shape, of a figure.
After a dilation, the image of a
figure is similar to the preimage.
9
Identifying Dilations
Tell whether each transformation is a dilation.
The figures are similar, so
the transformation is a
dilation.
5 m
The figures are not similar,
so the transformation is not
a dilation.
A dilation enlarges or reduces a figure. The scale factor tells you how
much the figure is enlarged or reduced. On a coordinate plane, you
can find the image of a figure after a dilation by multiplying the
coordinates of the vertices by the scale factor.
^EXAMPLE [zj Using a Dilation to Enlarge a Figure

7.3.4 Recognize, describe, or extend geometric patterns using tables, graphs,
words, or symbols
When you can draw a line
through a plane figure so that
the two halves are reflections
of each other, the figure has
line symmetry. The line of
reflection is called the
line of symmetry . The
reflections you created in
Lesson 810 have line
symmetiy.
Vocabulary
line symmetry
line of symmetry
asymmetry
rotational symmetry
center of rotation
Many architects and artists use symmetry in their buildings. The structure
of the Puerta de Europa towers in Madrid, Spain, is symmetrical. You
can draw a line of symmetry between the towers.
When a figure is not symmetrical, it has asymmetry , or is asymmetrical.
EXAMPLE
Identifying Line Symmetry
Decide whether each figure has line symmetry. If it does, draw al
the lines of symmetry.
3 lines of symmetry

EXAMPLE
When you rotate a figure, you can create
a figure with rotational symmetiy.
A figure has rotational symmetry if,
when it is rotated less than 360° around
a central point, it coincides with itself.
The central point is called the
center of rotation.
If the stained glass window at right is
rotated 90°, as shown, the image looks
the same as the original stained glass
window. Therefore the window has
rotational symmetry.

Ancient Greeks used measurements taken during lunar eclipses to
determine that the Moon was an average distance of 240,000 miles
from Earth. Modern astronomers place the average distance at
238,855 miles.
Although the measurements are relatively close, modern astronomers
measure with greater precision. Precision is the level of detail an
instrument can measure.
The smaller the unit an instrument
can measure, the more precise its
measurements will be. For example, a
millimeter ruler has greater precision
than a centimeter ruler.

You can measure

In the real world, no measurement is exact and all measurements are
approximations. Accuracy is the closeness of any given measurement or
value to the actual measurement or value.

precision, both measurements are equally accurate because they are
equally close to the actual value.

rea or irregular iigures
A composite figure is made up of simple geometric shapes, such
as triangles and rectangles. You can find the area of composite and
other irregular figures by separating them into nonoverlapping
familiar figures. The sum of the areas of these figures is the area of
the entire figure. You can also estimate the area of an irregular figure
by using graph paper.

PROBLEM
SOLVING
Helpful Hint
There are often
several different
ways to separate an
Irregular figure into
familiar figures.
PROBLEM SOLVING APPLICATION
Chandra wants to carpet the floor of her
closet. A floor plan of the closet is shown at ^^
right. How much carpet does she need?
12ft
3ft
^* Understand the Problem
Rewrite the question as a statement:
• Find the amount of carpet needed to cover the floor of the closet.
List the important information:
• The floor of the closet is a composite figure.
• The amount of carpet needed is equal to the area of the floor.
Make a Plan
Find the area of the floor by separating the
figure into familiar figures: a rectangle and a 4 ^^
triangle. Then add the areas of the rectangle
and triangle to find the total area.
*ll Solve
Find the area of each smaller figure.
Area of the triangle:
12 ft
4 ft
3ft
Area of the rectangle:
A = ew
A =12 4:
A = 48 ft
A^^bh
A = U5){3 + 4)
A = U35) = 17.5 ft'
Add the areas to find the total area, yl = 48 + 17.5 = 65.5
Chandra needs 65.5 ft" of carpet.
EZ Look Back
The area of the closet floor must be greater than the area of the
rectangle (48 ft), so the answer is reasonable.
Thmk and Discuss
1. Describe two different ways to find the
area of the irregular figure at right.
2. Explain how dividing the figure into
two rectangles with a horizontal line
would affect its area and perimeter.

Understand the Problem
• Identify too much or too little information
Problems involving realworld situations sometimes give too much
or too little information. Before solving these types of problems,
you must decide what information is necessary' and whether you
have all the necessary information.
If the problem gives too much information, identify which of the
facts are really needed to solve the problem. If the problem gives
too little information, determine what additional information is
required to solve the problem.
Copy each problem and underline the information you need to solve
it. If necessary information is missing, write down what additional
information is required.
