### Eureka Math Grade 6 Module 4 Lesson 23 Opening Exercise Answer Key

Opening Exercise:

Determine what each symbol stands for, and provide an example.

Answer:

â†’ What is another example of a number sentence that includes an equal symbol?

Answers will vary. Ask more than one student.

The studentâ€™s height is the height marked by the tape on the wall. Have students stand next to the marked height. Discuss how their heights compare to the height of the tape. Are there other students in the room who have the same height?

Use the studentâ€™s height measurement in the example (the example uses a student 4\(\frac{7}{8}\) ft. in height).

â†’ What is another example of a number sentence that includes a greater than symbol?

Answers will vary. Ask more than one student.

Have students taller than the tape on the wall stand near the tape. Discuss how more than one student has a height that is greater than the tape, so there could be more than one number inserted into the inequality: > 4\(\frac{7}{8}\).

â†’ What is another example of a number sentence that includes a less than symbol?

Answers will vary. Ask more than one student.

Have students shorter than the tape on the wall stand near the tape. Discuss how more than one student has a height that is less than the tape, so there could be more than one number inserted into the inequality: < 4\(\frac{7}{8}\).

â†’ What is another example of a number sentence that includes a less than or equal to symbol?

Answers will vary. Ask more than one student.

Ask students who are the exact height as the tape and students who are shorter than the tape to stand near the tape. Discuss how this symbol is different from the previous symbol.

â†’ What is another example of a number sentence that includes a greater than or equal to symbol?

Answers will vary. Ask more than one student.

â†’ Which students would stand near the tape to demonstrate this symbol?

Students who are the same height as or taller than the tape

### Eureka Math Grade 6 Module 4 Lesson 23 Example Answer Key

For each equation or inequality your teacher displays, write the equation or inequality and then substitute 3 for every x. Determine if the equation or inequality results in a true number sentence or a false number sentence.

Answer:

Display 5 + x = 8.

â†’ Substitute 3 for x and evaluate. Does this result in a true number sentence or a false number sentence?

True

â†’ Why is the number sentence a true number sentence?

Each expression on either side of the equal sign evaluates to 8. 8 = 8

Display 5x = 8.

â†’ Substitute 3 for x and evaluate. Does this result in a true number sentence or a false number sentence?

False

â†’ Why is the number sentence a false number sentence?

Five times three equals fifteen. Fifteen does not equal eight, so the number sentence 5(3) = 8 is false.

Display 5 + x > 8.

â†’ Substitute 3 for x and evaluate. Does this result in a true number sentence or a false number sentence?

False

â†’ Why is the number sentence a false number sentence?

Each expression on either side of the in equality sign evaluates to 8. However, the inequality sign states that eight is greater than eight, which is not true. We have already shown that 8 = 8.

Display 5x > 8.

â†’ Substitute 3 for x and evaluate. Does this result in a true number sentence or a false number sentence?

True

â†’ Why is the number sentence a true number sentence?

When three is substituted, the left side of the inequality evaluates to fifteen. Fifteen is greater than eight, so the number sentence is true.

Display 5 + x â‰¥ 8.

â†’ Substitute 3 for x and evaluate. Does this result in a true number sentence or a false number sentence?

True

â†’ Why is the number sentence a true number sentence?

Each expression on either side of the inequality sign evaluates to 8. Because the inequality sign states that the expression on the left side can be greater than or equal to the expression on the right side, the number sentence is true because we have already shown that 8 = 8.

â†’ Can you find a number other than three that we can substitute for x that will result in a false number sentence?

Answers will vary, but any number less than three will result in a false number sentence.
