### Eureka Math Algebra 1 Module 1 Lesson 16 Exercise Answer Key

Exercise 1.
Solve w2=121, for w. Graph the solution on a number line.
w=±11 b. Solve w2<121, for w. Graph the solution on a number line, and write the solution set as a compound inequality.
-11<w<11 c. Solve w2≥121, for w. Graph the solution on a number line, and write the solution set as a compound inequality.
w≤-11 or w≥11 d. Quickly solve (x+7)2=121, for x. Graph the solution on a number line.
x=-18 or x=4 e. Use your work from part (d) to quickly graph the solution on a number line to each inequality below.
i. (x+7)2<121 ii. (x+7)2≥121 Extension
Use the following to challenge students who finish early.
a. Poindexter says that (a+b)2 equals a2+2ab+b2. Is he correct?
b. Solve x2+14x+49<121, for x. Present the solution graphically on a number line.

Exercises 2–3
Give students four minutes to work on Exercises 2 and 3. Then, discuss the results as a class. Students are applying their knowledge from the previous lesson to solve an unfamiliar type of problem.

Exercise 2.
Consider the compound inequality -5<x<4. a. Rewrite the inequality as a compound statement of inequality. Answer: x>-5 and x<4

b. Write a sentence describing the possible values of x.
x can be any number between -5 and 4.

c. Graph the solution set on the number line below. Exercise 3.
Consider the compound inequality -5<2x+1<4. a. Rewrite the inequality as a compound statement of inequality. Answer: 2x+1>-5 and 2x+1<4 b. Solve each inequality for x. Then, write the solution to the compound inequality. Answer: x>-3 and x<$$\frac{3}{2}$$ OR -3<x<$$\frac{3}{2}$$

c. Write a sentence describing the possible values of x.
x can be any number between -3 and $$\frac{3}{2}$$.

d. Graph the solution set on the number line below. Review Exercise 3 with students to demonstrate how to solve it without rewriting it.
→ A friend of mine suggested I could solve the inequality as follows. Is she right?
-5<2x+1<4
-5-1<2x+1-1<4-1
-6<2x<3
-3<x<$$\frac{3}{2}$$ Encourage students to articulate their thoughts and scrutinize each other’s reasoning. Point out to students that solving the two inequalities did not require any new skills. They are solved just as they learned in previous lessons. Have students verify their solutions by filling in a few test values. Remind students that the solution can be written two ways: x>-3 and x<$$\frac{3}{2}$$ OR -3<x<$$\frac{3}{2}$$

Exercises 4–5
Give students four minutes to work on Exercises 4 and 5. Then, review the results as a class. Again, point out to students that solving the two inequalities did not require any new skills. They are solved just as they learned in previous lessons. Have students verify their solutions by filling in a few test values.

Exercise 4.
Given x<-3 or x>-1:
a. What must be true in order for the compound inequality to be a true statement?
One of the statements must be true, so either x has to be less than -3, or it has to be greater than -1. (In this case, it is not possible that both are true.)

b. Write a sentence describing the possible values of x.
x can be any number that is less than -3 or any number that is greater than -1.

c. Graph the solution set on the number line below. Exercise 5.
Given x+4<6 or x-1>3:
a. Solve each inequality for x. Then, write the solution to the compound inequality.
x<2 or x>4

b. Write a sentence describing the possible values of x.
x can be any number that is less than 2 or any number that is greater than 4.

c. Graph the solution set on the number line below. Exercise 6.
Solve each compound inequality for x, and graph the solution on a number line.
a. x+6<8 and x-1>-1 x<2 and x>0 → 0<x<2

b. -1≤3-2x≤10 x≥-$$\frac{7}{2}$$ and x≤2 → –$$\frac{7}{2}$$≤x≤2

c. 5x+1<0 or 8≤x-5 x<-$$\frac{1}{5}$$ or x≥13 d. 10>3x-2 or x=4 x<4 or x=4 → x≤4

e. x-2<4 or x-2>4 x<6 or x>6 → x≠6

f. x-2≤4 and x-2≥4 x=6

Debrief the exercise with the following questions:
→ Look at the solution to part (f) closely. Remind students that both statements must be true. Therefore, the solution is only x=6.
→ How would the solution to part (f) change if the “and” was an “or”? Let this discussion lead in to Exercise 7.

Exercise 7.
Solve each compound inequality for x, and graph the solution on a number line. Pay careful attention to the inequality symbols and the “and” or “or” statements as you work.
a. 1+x>-4 or 3x-6>-12
x>-5 b. 1+x>-4 or 3x-6<-12
x can be any real number. c. 1+x>4 and 3x-6<-12 Answer: x>3 and x<-2
No solution (empty set) since there are no numbers that satisfy both statements ### Eureka Math Algebra 1 Module 1 Lesson 16 Problem Set Answer Key
