## HMH Into Math Grade 6 Module 8 Lesson 4 Answer Key Interpret and Evaluate Algebraic Expressions

I Can interpret and evaluate algebraic expressions using the order of operations.

**Step It Out**

You can evaluate an expression with a variable by substituting a known value for the variable.

Question 1.

Evaluate each expression for the given value of the variable.

A. The area of a rug can be represented by the expression 6w.

Find the area when w = 4 feet.

Substitute 4 for w. 6()

Multiply.

When w = 4 ft, 6w = square feet.

Answer:

Given,

w = 4 feet

Now we have to substitute 4 for w.

Area of the rectangle = l × w

A = 6 × 4

6 × 4 = 24

When w = 4 ft, 6w = 24 square feet.

B. Evaluate 18y when y = \(\frac{2}{3}\).

Substitute \(\frac{2}{3}\) for y. 18

Multiply.

When y = \(\frac{2}{3}\), 18y = .

Answer:

Given,

18y when y = \(\frac{2}{3}\)

18 × \(\frac{2}{3}\) = 6 × 2 = 12

When y = \(\frac{2}{3}\), 18y = 12

C. Evaluate x – 12 when x = 18.6.

Substitute 18.6 for x. – 12

Subtract.

When x = 18.6, x – 12 = .

Answer:

x – 12 when x = 18.6

We have to substitute 18.6 for x.

18.6 – 12 = 6.6

x – 12 = 6.6

**Turn and Talk** For the expression in Part A. how is the value of the expression related to the value of the variable? Explain.

Answer:

The shape of the rug is in the form of a rectangle.

By seeing the figure we can say that the width is less than the length of the rug.

Area of the rectangle = l × w

A = 6 × 4

6 × 4 = 24

When w = 4 ft, 6w = 24 square feet.

Sometimes expressions have more than one variable.

Question 2.

The perimeter of a rectangular swimming pool can be written as 2l + 2w, where l is the length and w is the width. Find the perimeter when l = 7.5 meters and w = 4.5 meters.

Answer:

Given,

l = 7.5 meters and w = 4.5 meters

The perimeter of a rectangular swimming pool can be written as 2l + 2w,

where l is the length and w is the width.

Substitute 7.5 for l and 4.5 for w.

P = 2(7.5 + 4.5)

P = 2 (12)

P = 24

Thus when l = 7.5 and w = 4.5, 2l + 2w = 24 meters

Question 3.

Evaluate each expression for the given values of the variables.

A. Evaluate 4x^{3} – 3y when x = 2 and y = 10.

Answer:

4x^{3} – 3y when x = 2 and y = 10

Substitute x = 2 and y = 10

4(2)^{3} – 3(10)

4(8) – 30

32 – 30 = 2

So, when x = 2 and y = 10, 4x^{3} – 3y = 2.

B. Evaluate 6s + \(\frac{d}{2}\) when s = \(\frac{5}{12}\) and d = 15.

Answer:

6s + \(\frac{d}{2}\)

when s = \(\frac{5}{12}\) and

d = 15

6 (\(\frac{5}{12}\)) + \(\frac{15}{2}\)

\(\frac{5}{2}\) + \(\frac{15}{2}\) = \(\frac{20}{2}\) = 10

So, when s = \(\frac{5}{12}\) and d = 15

6s + \(\frac{d}{2}\) = 10

**Turn and Talk** How is evaluating algebraic expressions similar to evaluating numerical expressions? How is it different? Explain.

Answer:

C. Evaluate 4x²y when x = 3 and y = 0.5.

Substitute 3 for x and 0.5 for y. 4()^{2} ()

Evaluate the exponent. 4()()

Multiply.

When x = and y = 0.5, 4x^{2}y = .

Answer:

4x²y when x = 3 and y = 0.5

Substitute 3 for x and 0.5 for y

4(3)².0.5 = 4(9) × 0.5

= 36 × 0.5

= 18

So, When x = 2 and y = 0.5, 4x^{2}y = 18.

Question 4.

The expression 1 .8C + 32 gives the temperature in degrees Fahrenheit (°F) for a given temperature C in degrees Celsius (°C). Find the temperature in degrees Fahrenheit that is equivalent to 30 °C.

Substitute 30 for C. 1.8( ) + 32

Multiply. + 32

Add.

30°C = °F

Answer:

Substitute 30 for C.

1.8( 30) + 32

54 + 32 = 86

30°C = 86 °F
