## HMH Into Math Grade 7 Module 1 Answer Key Identify and Represent Proportional Relationships

**Astronomer**

Michael E. Brown is a professor of planetary astronomy at the California Institute of Technology and the author of the book How I Killed Pluto and Why It Had It Coming. Brown and his team discovered a number of objects in our solar system farther away than Neptune. One of these objects, the dwarf planet Eris, is more massive than Pluto (shown above). This discovery resulted in The International Astronomical Union demoting Pluto to a dwarf planet.

**STEM Task**

We often use ratios to describe scale models. If a model rocket has a scale 1 inch = 12 feet, that means for every part of the model that measures 1 inch the corresponding part of the rocket measures 12 feet. Use this scale to calculate the height of a rocket if the model is 26 inches tall. Explain your reasoning.

**Perseverance Collects and Tries Multiple Strategies**

Perseverance is the ability to stick with a task, even if it is difficult. Have you ever noticed that you are able to manage your time on tasks better than before or that you are able to identify study skills that are effective for you? Those are signs that your ability to persevere is growing. Here are some tips for helping you persevere through difficult tasks.

- Get rid of distractions, like your cell phone, while you are working. Your brain is less effective when you attempt to multi-task. All human brains are! That’s because multi-tasking isn’t really doing two things at once. Your brain is actually shifting attention between the activities, and that slows you down. It can also make the quality of your work decrease.
- Divide complex tasks into smaller steps. This helps you focus your efforts. It also makes it easier to spot mistakes.
- Even if your effort is unsuccessful, look at what you can learn from each attempt and adjust your strategy.
- Check for a fixed-mindset voice in your head telling you that you’re not good with certain content or with certain tasks. Activate your growth-mindset voice telling you that you can learn more about the content and get better at the tasks.

**Divide Fractions and Mixed Numbers**

**Divide.**

Question 7.

\(\frac{3}{4}\) ÷ \(\frac{3}{5}\) _____

Answer:

Given fractions,

\(\frac{3}{4}\) ÷ \(\frac{3}{5}\)

Dividing two fractions is the same as multiplying the first fraction by the reciprocal of the second fraction.

Take the reciprocal of the second fraction by flipping the numerator and denominator and changing the operation to multiplication.

\(\frac{~~3~~}{4}\) × \(\frac{5}{~~3~~}\) = \(\frac{5}{4}\)

Convert from improper fraction to the mixed fraction.

\(\frac{5}{4}\) = 1\(\frac{1}{4}\)

Question 8.

7\(\frac{1}{2}\) ÷ \(\frac{5}{8}\) _____

Answer:

Given fractions,

7\(\frac{1}{2}\) ÷ \(\frac{5}{8}\)

7\(\frac{1}{2}\) = \(\frac{15}{2}\)

Dividing two fractions is the same as multiplying the first fraction by the reciprocal of the second fraction.

Take the reciprocal of the second fraction by flipping the numerator and denominator and changing the operation to multiplication.

\(\frac{15}{2}\) ÷ \(\frac{5}{8}\)

\(\frac{15}{2}\) × \(\frac{8}{5}\) = \(\frac{12~~0~~}{1~~0~~}\) = 12

Question 9.

\(\frac{3}{8}\) ÷ \(\frac{1}{2}\) _____

Answer:

Given fractions,

\(\frac{3}{8}\) ÷ \(\frac{1}{2}\)

Dividing two fractions is the same as multiplying the first fraction by the reciprocal of the second fraction.

Take the reciprocal of the second fraction by flipping the numerator and denominator and changing the operation to multiplication.

\(\frac{3}{8}\) × \(\frac{2}{1}\) = \(\frac{6}{8}\) = \(\frac{3}{4}\)
