1. The table below shows the elevations above or below sea level of several lakes. Sea level is considered to be an elevation of zero feet.

A. How could you use a horizontal number line to compare the elevations?

__________________________

__________________________

Answer:

We could use the number line to describe which elevation is greater or smaller from the sea level.

B. What happens to the elevations as you move right on the number line?

__________________________

Answer:

As we move to the right on a horizontal number line, the value gets larger. Those numbers are called positive numbers because they are greater than zero.

C. What happens to the elevations as you move left on the number line?

__________________________

Answer:

As we move left on the number line the value gets smaller. Those numbers are called negative numbers because they are less than zero.

D. Which lake is at a lower elevation, Springbrook Lake or Forest Lake? Explain your reasoning.

__________________________

__________________________

Answer:

Springbrook Lake.

Explanation:

Elevation for Springbrook Lake is -75.2 and in the forest, the lake is 90. By comparing both the lake which is negative in value is at a lower elevation.

The lake Springbrook Lake is at a lower elevation.

E. Which lake is at a higher elevation, Beldon Lake or Springbrook Lake? Explain your reasoning.

__________________________

Answer:

Beldon Lake.

Explanation:

Given Beldon is -18.5 and Springbrook lake is -75.2.

By comparing both Beldon lake is at a higher elevation than Springbrook lake.

F. How can you use a number line to order the elevations?

__________________________

__________________________

__________________________

Answer:

Elevations above sea level are positive and below sea level are negative. We can use the number line to compare and order positive and negative values.

**Turn and Talk** Describe another situation that uses elevations to describe locations. Give an example.

2. Deshaun, Chris, Tonya, and Austin play a game. Each turn, a player can lose a point or win a point. At the end of the game the scores are as shown.

A. Graph the scores on the number line.

Answer:

B. Is Deshaun’s or Tonya’s score greater? Explain how you know.

________________

________________

________________

Answer:

Deshaun’s score is greater.

Explanation:

Given Deshaun’s score has 2 and Tonya’s score has -5.

By comparing their scores Deshaun’s score is greater.

C. Is Chris’s score greater than Tonya’s? Explain how you used the number line to compare the numbers.

________________

________________

________________

________________

Answer:

Chris’s score is greater than Tonya’s. By using the number line we can compare the numbers which are greater.

D. From left to right, do the values on the number line increase or decrease? Explain.

________________

________________

________________

________________

Answer:

Increase.

Explanation:

From left to right, the values on the number line increase.

The mathematical sentences -3 < 5 and 2 > -4 are examples of inequalities.

The symbol “<” is read “is less than.” So, -3 < 5 means “-3 is less than 5.” The symbol “>” is read “is greater than.” So, 2 > -4 means “2 is greater than -4.”

**Connect to Vocabulary**

An inequality is a mathematical sentence that shows the relationship between quantities that are not equal.

3. In golf, scores are based on par. If someone scores less than par, their score is recorded as a negative integer. If someone scores more than par, their score is recorded as a positive integer. After two holes, Jaylen’s score was -3, Kyro’s score was 1, and Keyana’s score was 3.

A. Use a number line to order the scores. Write the scores in order from least to greatest.

Explain your reasoning.

B. What two inequalities could you write to compare Jaylen’s and Kyro’s scores? If a lower score is better, explain who did better, Jaylen or Kyro.

C. Two new golfers, Jon and Tiana, are in a competition. Tiana scores a -3 and Jon scores a -1. Write an inequality to compare their scores. Since in golf the lowest score wins, who won the match? Explain.

Question 4.

**Reason** Bank accounts can have a positive or negative balance. When a person takes out more money than is in the account, the account’s balance will be negative. A bank account’s

balance is -$26. Graph -26 on the number line. If a second bank account has a balance that is less than -$26, identify a possible second balance. Write an inequality to compare the balances.

Answer:

Question 5.

The depth of a deep-sea diver can be represented by a negative integer. If the diver is 5 feet below the

surface of the water, then the diver’s elevation is -5 feet.

A. One diver’s elevation is -30 feet and another’s is -25 feet. Which number is less? Graph the

elevations on the number line to answer the question.

____________________________

Answer:

The number -30 feet is less than -25 feet.

B. Write an inequality to compare the two elevations. Use the number line to answer the question.

____________________________

Answer:

-30 feet < -25 feet.

An inequality to compare the two elevations is <.

C. What does 0 feet mean?

____________________________

Answer:

Sea level elevation is called as 0 feet. All other elevations are measured from the sea level.

Question 2.

**STEM** The average temperature on the planet Neptune is -214 °C. The temperature on the south pole of Neptune is thought to be 10 °C. Is this colder or warmer than the average temperature? Write an inequality to support your answer.

__________________________

Answer:

10 °C > -214 °C

Explanation:

According to the title,

-214 °C < 0 °C

10 °C > 0 °C

So -214 °C < 10 °C

It is warmer than the average temperature.
