UNIT 1: Square Roots and the Pythagorean Theorem

1 unit

Connect When we multiply a number by itself, we square the number. For example: The square of 4 is 4 ! 4 " 16. We write: 4 ! 4 " 42 So, 42 " 4 ! 4 " 16 We say: Four squared is sixteen. 16 is a square number, or a perfect square. One way to model a square number is to draw a square whose area is equal to the square number.

Example 1 Show that 49 is a square number. Use a diagram, symbols, and words.

▲

A Solution Draw a square with area 49 square units. The side length of the square is 7 units. Then, 49 " 7 ! 7 " 72 We say: Forty-nine is seven squared.

Example 2 A square picture has area 169 cm2. Find the perimeter of the picture.

▲

A Solution The picture is a square with area 169 cm2. Find the side length of the square:

A = 169 cm2

Find a number which, when multiplied by itself, gives 169. 13 ! 13 " 169 So, the picture has side length 13 cm. Perimeter is the distance around the picture. So, P " 13 cm # 13 cm # 13 cm # 13 cm " 52 cm The perimeter of the picture is 52 cm. 1.1 Square Numbers and Area Models

Connect ➤ Here are some ways to tell whether a number is a square number. If we can find a division sentence for a number so that the quotient is equal to the divisor, the number is a square number. For example, 16 $ 4 " 4, so 16 is a square number. dividend

divisor

quotient

➤ We can also use factoring. Factors of a number occur in pairs. These are the dimensions of a rectangle.

1 and 16 are factors of 16.

1 unit

16 units

2 and 8 are factors of 16. 8 units

2 units 4 is a factor of 16. It occurs twice.

4 units

4 units

Sixteen has 5 factors: 1, 2, 4, 8, 16 Since there is an odd number of factors, one rectangle is a square. The square has side length 4 units. We say that 4 is a square root of 16. We write: 4 " !" 16

A factor that occurs twice is only written once in the list of factors.

When a number has an odd number of factors, it is a square number. When we multiply a number by itself, we square the number. Squaring and taking the square root are inverse operations. That is, they undo each other. !" 4 ! 4 " 16 16 " !"" 4 ! 4 " !" 42 so, 42 " 16 "4

Example 3 The factors of 136 are listed in ascending order. 136: 1, 2, 4, 8, 17, 34, 68, 136 Is 136 a square number? How do you know?

Numbers are in ascending order when they are written from least to greatest number.

▲

A Solution A square number has an odd number of factors. One hundred thirty-six has 8 factors. Eight is an even number. So, 136 is not a square number.

▲

Example 3 Another Solution List the factors of 136 in a column, in ascending order. Beside this column, list the factors in descending order. Multiply the numbers in each row.

The same factor does not occur in the same place in both columns. So, 136 cannot be written as the product of 2 equal numbers.

1 2 4 8 17 34 68 136

Connect Since the Pythagorean Theorem is true for all right triangles, we can use an algebraic equation to describe it. In the triangle at the right, the hypotenuse has length h, and the legs have lengths a and b.

Area = h2

The area of the square on the hypotenuse is h ! h, or h2.

Connect Recall that we can use coloured tiles to model integers. One yellow tile models +1, and one red tile models –1.

They combine to form a zero pair: (+1) " (–1) # 0 We can extend our use of coloured tiles to model the multiplication of two integers. Let a circle represent the “bank.” Start with the bank having zero value. The first integer tells us to deposit (put in) or to withdraw (take out). When the first integer is positive, put tiles in. When the first integer is negative, take tiles out. The second integer tells us what to put in or take out. ➤ Multiply: (+4) ! (+3) +4 is a positive integer. +3 is modelled with 3 yellow tiles. So, put 4 sets of 3 yellow tiles into the circle.

(+4) ! (+3) # (+3) " (+3) " (+3) " (+3) Make 4 deposits of +3.

There are 12 yellow tiles in the circle. They represent +12. So, (+4) ! (+3) # +12 ➤ Multiply: (+4) ! (–3) +4 is a positive integer. –3 is modelled with 3 red tiles. So, put 4 sets of 3 red tiles into the circle.

(+4) ! (–3) # (–3) " (–3) " (–3) " (–3) Make 4 deposits of –3.

There are 12 red tiles in the circle. They represent –12. So, (+4) ! (–3) # –12 ➤ Multiply: (–4) ! (–3) –4 is a negative integer. –3 is modelled with 3 red tiles. So, take 4 sets of 3 red tiles out of the circle. There are no red tiles to take out.

Make 4 withdrawals of –3.

So, add zero pairs until there are enough red tiles to remove. Add 12 zero pairs. Take out 4 sets of 3 red tiles. There are 12 yellow tiles left in the circle. They represent +12. So, (–4) ! (–3) # +12 ➤ Multiply: (–4) ! (+3) –4 is a negative integer. +3 is modelled with 3 yellow tiles. So, take 4 sets of 3 yellow tiles out of the circle. There are no yellow tiles to take out. So, add zero pairs until there are enough yellow tiles to remove. Add 12 zero pairs. Take out 4 sets of 3 yellow tiles. There are 12 red tiles left in the circle. They represent –12. So, (–4) !

Example 1 Use tiles to find: (–3) ! (+2)

▲

A Solution –3 is a negative integer. +2 is modelled with 2 yellow tiles. So, take 3 sets of 2 yellow tiles out of the circle. Since there are no yellow tiles to take out, add 6 zero pairs. Take out 3 sets of 2 yellow tiles. 6 red tiles remain. They represent –6. So, (–3) ! (+2) # –6

We can use a “bank” model to multiply 2 integers. • A circle represents the “bank.” We start with the bank having zero value. • The first integer tells us to deposit (put in) or to withdraw (take out). • The second integer tells us what to put in or take out. • We can use this model to multiply 3 ! 4. Make 3 deposits of 4 yellow tiles. How can we use this model to find 12 % 4?

There are 12 yellow tiles. So, 3 ! 4 # 12

A Solution Divide: (–12) % (+4) How many groups of +4 will make –12? Use coloured tiles and the “bank” model. Start with a value of 0 in the circle. To get a product of –12, 12 red tiles must be left in the circle. So, model 0 with 12 zero pairs. +4 is modelled with 4 yellow tiles. Take out sets of 4 yellow tiles. The negative sign in the quotient indicates removal.

3 sets were removed. So, (–12) % (+4) # –3

Developing Rules to Divide Integers Focus

Use patterns to develop the rules for dividing integers.

For any multiplication fact with two different whole number factors, you can write two related division facts. For example: 9 ! 7 # 63 What are the related division facts? What strategies did you use? We can apply the same strategies to multiplication facts with two different integer factors.

Investigate Work in groups of 4. Choose 2 positive integers and 2 negative integers. Express each integer as a product of integers. Do this in two ways. For each product, write two related division facts.

UNIT 2: Integers

Compare your division facts with those of another group of classmates. Generalize a rule you can use to determine the sign of the quotient when you divide: • a positive integer by a positive integer • a positive integer by a negative integer • a negative integer by a positive integer • a negative integer by a negative integer For each rule, create two examples of your choice.

Connect To divide integers, we can use the fact that division is the inverse of multiplication. ➤ We know that: (+5) ! (+3) # +15 So, (+15) % (+5) # +3

and

(+15) % (+3) # +5

dividend divisor quotient When the dividend and the divisor are positive, the quotient is positive. ➤ We know that: (–5) ! (+3) # –15 So, (–15) % (+3) # –5

and

The dividend is negative and the divisor is positive. The quotient is negative.

(–15) % (–5) # +3 Both the dividend and the divisor are negative. The quotient is positive.

➤ We know that: (–5) ! (–3) # +15 So, (+15) % (–5) # –3

and

(+15) % (–3) # –5

When the dividend is positive and the divisor is negative, the quotient is negative. A division expression can be written with a division sign: (–48) % (–6); –48 or, as a fraction: –6 When the expression is written as a fraction, we do not need to use brackets. The fraction bar acts as a grouping symbol. A grouping symbol keeps terms together, just like brackets.

“Par” is the number of strokes it should take for a player to reach the hole. If par is 3 and you take 5 strokes, then your score in relation to par is +2, or 2 over. If par is 3 and you take 2 strokes, then your score in relation to par is –1, or 1 under. A bogey is 1 stroke more than par, or 1 over par. A double bogey is 2 strokes more than par, or 2 over par. A birdie is 1 stroke less than par, or 1 under par. An eagle is 2 strokes less than par, or 2 under par.

Here are the top 6 golfers: Chai Kim, Delaney, Hamid, Hanna, Kyle, and Weng Kwong 1.

The golf course has 9 holes. Here is one person’s results: par on 3 holes, a bogey on 2 holes, a birdie on 1 hole, an eagle on 2 holes, and a double bogey on 1 hole a) Write an integer expression to represent these results.

A Solution 7 5

#

8 3

There are no common factors in the numerators and denominators. 7

Recall that factors are the numbers that are multiplied to get a product; for example, 2 and 5 are factors of 10 because 2 # 5 = 10.

7#8

8

So, 5 # 3 " 5 # 3 56 15 45 11 " 15 ! 15 11 11 " 3 ! 15 , or 3 15

"

45 is the multiple of 15 that is closest to 56, and less than 56.

Estimate to check. 7 5 is between 1 and 2, but closer to 1. 8 3 is between 2 and 3, but closer to 3.

So, the product is about 1 # 3 " 3. 11

Since 3 15 is close to 3, the product is reasonable. 116

3.8 Solving Problems with Fractions

147

Connect When solving word problems, it is important to identify the operation or operations needed to solve the problem. To identify the operation: • Think about the situation. • Make sense of the problem by explaining it in your own words, drawing a picture, or using a model. • Think about what is happening in the problem. Sometimes, key words can help you identify the operation to use. For example, “total” suggests adding, “less than” suggests subtracting, “times” suggests multiplying, and “shared” suggests dividing. Although key words may help identify an operation, the operation must make sense in the context of the problem.

You can use “traffic light” signals to help you reflect on your understanding. It is a good way to signal what you know you can do, what you think you can do, and what you need help with. When you have finished your homework, reflect on all the questions. Label each question with a green dot, a yellow dot, or a red dot. A red dot means: I do not understand this. I cannot answer the question. I need some help. A yellow dot means: I am not sure I understand this. I might be able to answer this question with a little help but I am not confident about my answer. I might need to ask a question or two to get started. A green dot means: I understand this. I can answer this question and am confident about my answer. If someone else is struggling with this question, I can help. Answer these questions.

UNIT 4: Measuring Prisms and Cylinders

Identify, draw, and construct nets of objects.

Connect A net is a diagram that can be folded to make an object. A net shows all the faces of an object. A net can be used to make an object called a polyhedron. A polyhedron has faces that are polygons. Two faces meet at an edge. Three or more edges meet at a vertex. ➤ A prism has 2 congruent bases and is named for its bases. When all its faces, other than the bases, base are rectangles and they are perpendicular to the bases, the prism is called a right prism. Here is a right pentagonal prism and its net.

A regular prism has regular polygons as bases.

Connect This box is a right rectangular prism. The volume of the box is the number of centimetre cubes the box holds.

3 cm 5 cm

Recall that, when the dimensions are measured in centimetres (cm), the volume is measured in cubic centimetres (cm3).

6 cm

One layer of cubes will be 5 cm wide and 6 cm long. So, 5 " 6, or 30 cubes fit in one layer. The box is 3 cm high, so 3 layers can fit. The total number of cubes is 30 " 3 = 90. So, the volume of the box is 90 cm3. One way to write the volume of the box: Volume = the number of cubes in one layer " the number of layers This is the same as: Volume = the area of the base of the box " its height This is true for all rectangular prisms. We can use variables to write a formula for the volume of a rectangular prism. Let A represent the base area and h represent the height. Then, the volume of a rectangular prism is: V = A " h or V = Ah

We can write an algebraic formula for the volume. The base of a cylinder is a circle with radius r. The area of a circle is: A # %r2 Let the height of the cylinder be h. So, the volume of a cylinder is: V # base area " height # area of circle " height # %r2 " h # %r2h So, a formula for the volume of a cylinder is V # %r2h, where r is the radius of its base, and h its height.

UNIT 5: Percent, Ratio, and Rate

Connect To write a fraction as a percent, we first write the fraction with a denominator that is a power of 10; such as 10, 100, 1000, or 10 000. Some fractions cannot be written this way. Then, we can use a calculator to divide.

A power of 10 is a product of any number of 10s.

➤ We can use a hundred chart to represent one whole, or 100%. Each small square represents 1%. We can describe the shaded part of the hundred chart in 3 ways: as a percent, a decimal, and as a fraction. 1

There are 34 2 blue squares in 100 squares. So, 34.5% of the squares are blue. 1 2 = 0.5 34.5 As a decimal: 100 ! 0.345 As a fraction: Since the decimal has 3 digits after the decimal point, write a fraction with denominator 1000. 345 0.345 ! 1000 ! !

Reduce to simplest form. 5 is a factor of both the numerator and the denominator.

Be careful not to confuse a decimal percent, such as 0.2%, with the decimal 0.2, which is 20%.

Example 3 a) The price of a carton of milk in the school cafeteria increased from 95¢ to $1.25. What was the percent increase in price? b) The price of a green salad decreased from $2.50 to $1.95. What was the percent decrease in price?

▲

A Solution Write $1.25 in cents: $1.25 ! 125¢ a) The increase in price was: 125¢ % 95¢ ! 30¢ To find the percent increase, write the increase as 30c/ a fraction of the original price: 95c/ 30

To write this fraction as a percent: 95 ! 0.32

Use a calculator.

Sales Tax and Discount Focus

A sales tax is charged by the federal government and by most provincial governments. In 2007, the federal tax, the goods and services tax (GST), was 6%. The provincial sales tax (PST) is set by each provincial or territorial government. Some provinces have introduced a harmonized sales tax (HST), which combines both the PST and GST.

UNIT 5: Percent, Ratio, and Rate

Connect The selling price of an item is often the same throughout Canada. But the amount you pay depends on the province or territory where you buy the item.

Example 1 How much would you pay for this DVD in each place? a) Nunavut b) Saskatchewan c) Nova Scotia

▲

A Solution a) In Nunavut, there is no PST. The GST is 6%. 6% of $25.99 ! 0.06 $ $25.99 ! $1.56 So, the price you pay is: $25.99 # $1.56 ! $27.55 b) In Saskatchewan, the PST is 5% and the GST is 6%. PST: 5% of $25.99 ! 0.05 $ $25.99 ! $1.30 GST: 6% of $25.99 ! 0.06 $ $25.99 ! $1.56 So, the price you pay is: $25.99 # $1.30 # $1.56 ! $28.85 c) In Nova Scotia, the HST is 14%. HST: 14% of $25.99 ! 0.14 $ $25.99 ! $3.64 So, the price you pay is: $25.99 # $3.64 ! $29.63

Example 2 A video game in Vancouver is discounted by 30%. Its regular price is $27.99. a) Calculate the sale price of the video game before taxes. b) Calculate the sale price of the video game including taxes.

▲

A Solution a) To find the amount of the discount, calculate 30% of $27.99. 30 30% ! 100 ! 0.3

So, 30% of $27.99 ! 0.3 $ $27.99 ! $8.40 The amount of the discount is $8.40. So, the sale price of the video game is: $27.99 % $8.40 ! $19.59 b) In Vancouver, the PST is 7% and the GST is 6%. Calculate the taxes. The PST is 7%. 7% of $19.59 ! 0.07 $ $19.59 ! $1.37 The GST is 6%. 6% of $19.59 ! 0.06 $ $19.59 ! $1.18 So, the sale price, including taxes, is: $19.59 # $1.37 # $1.18 ! $22.14

▲

Example 2 Another Solution a) Find the sale price in one step. The sale price of the video game is: 100% % 30%, or 70% of $27.99 70% of $27.99 ! 0.7 $ $27.99 ! $19.59 So, the sale price of the video game is $19.59. b) Find the sale price, including taxes, in one step. The total sales tax is: 7% # 6% ! 13% $19.59 is 100% of the sale price. So, the sale price including taxes is 100% #13%, or 113% of $19.59. 113% of $19.59 ! 1.13 $ $19.59 ! $22.14 So, the sale price, including taxes, is $22.14.

A Solution a) 30% of the selling price is $10.50. $10.50 So, 1% of the selling price is: 30 $10.50

and 100% of the selling price is: 30 $ 100 ! 35 The selling price of the backpack is $35.00. b) The PST in Saskatchewan is 5%. The GST is 6%. So, the total sales tax is: 5% # 6% ! 11% So, the price you pay is 100% # 11%, or 111% of $35.00. 111% of $35.00 ! 1.11 $ $35.00 ! $38.85 A customer in Regina pays $38.85 for the backpack.

The ratio of triangles to squares is 8:6. That is, for every 8 triangles, there are 6 squares.

The ratios 8:6 and 4:3 are called equivalent ratios. Equivalent ratios are equal. 8:6 ! 4:3 An equivalent ratio can be formed by multiplying or dividing the terms of a ratio by the same number. ➤ We can show this with the terms of the ratios in rows. $4 "4

Another way to compare ratios is to write equivalent ratios, with 1 as the second term.

Example 1 The recommended seeding on a package of grass seed is 200 g per 9 m2. Carey spread 150 g over 6.5 m2. Is this more than, equal to, or less than the recommended seeding? How do you know?

▲

A Solution Write each ratio with second term 1. For each ratio, divide each term by the second term. Then, use a calculator to write each fraction as a decimal. Package Grass seed:Area 200 9 200:9 # 9 : 9

Divide by 9.

# 22. 2 :1 The package recommended 22. 2 g of grass seed per 1 m2. Carey Grass seed:Area 150 6.5 150:6.5 # 6.5 : 6.5

Divide by 6.5.

! 23.1:1 Carey used about 23.1 g of grass seed per 1 m2. Since 23.1 > 22. 2 , Carey spread more seed than the package recommended.

Example 1 involved part-to-part ratios. Some problems are solved using part-to-whole ratios.

5.7 Comparing Ratios

Since 5 < 2 and 7 > 2 , then 7 > 5 So, 4:7 is greater than 2:5.

This week, his class collected 24 bottles. Mr. Bozyk told the students that the ratio of bottles recycled to bottles collected is the same as the ratio the preceding week. How can the students find how many bottles are recycled this week? Last week’s ratio of bottles recycled to bottles collected is 3:4. Let r represent the number of bottles recycled this week. This week’s ratio of bottles recycled to bottles collected is r:24. These two ratios are equivalent. So, r:24 # 3:4 A statement that two ratios are equal is a proportion. 5.8 Solving Ratio Problems

287

To find the value of r, write a ratio equivalent to 3:4, with second term 24. Since 4 " 6 # 24, multiply each term by 6. 3:4 # (3 " 6):(4 " 6) # 18:24 So, r:24 # 18:24 So, r # 18 18 bottles were recycled.

Example 2 This is a photo of a father and his daughter. In the photo, the father’s height is 8 cm and the daughter’s height is 6 cm. The father’s actual height is 1.8 m. What is the actual height of his daughter?

▲

A Solution In the photo, the ratio of the height of the father to the height of the daughter is 8:6. Let h represent the actual height of the daughter, in centimetres. Then, the ratio of the actual height of the father to the actual height of the daughter is 1.8:h. 1.8 m # 180 cm So, the ratio is 180:h. The two ratios are equivalent. Then, 180:h # 8:6 To find the value of h, write a ratio equivalent to 8:6, with first term 180. Since 8 does not divide into 180 exactly, simplify the ratio 8:6 first. 8 6 8:6 # 2 : 2 # 4:3 Write a ratio equivalent to 4:3, with first term 180. Since 4 " 45 # 180, multiply each term by 45. 4:3 # (4 " 45):(3 " 45) # 180:135 So, 180:h # 180:135 So, h # 135 The daughter’s actual height is 135 cm, or 1.35 m.

5.8 Solving Ratio Problems

Example 3 A bike is in fourth gear. When the pedals turn 3 times, the rear wheel turns 7 times. When the pedals turn twice, how many times does the rear wheel turn?

▲

A Solution The ratio of pedal turns to rear wheel turns is 3:7. When the pedal turns twice, let the number of rear wheel turns be n. The ratio of pedal turns to rear wheel turns is 2:n. These ratios are equal. Then 3:7 # 2:n We cannot easily write a ratio equivalent to 3 to 7 with first term 2. We look for a multiple of the first terms; that is, a multiple of 2 and 3. When we multiply each ratio in a proportion by a different The least multiple is 6. number, the new ratios are We multiply each ratio to get the first term 6. still equivalent. (3 " 2):(7 " 2) # (2 " 3): (n " 3) 6:14 # 6:3n The first terms are equal, so the second terms must also be equal. That is, 3n # 14 3n 14 3 # 3 14 2 n # 3 , or 4 3 2

UNIT 5: Percent, Ratio, and Rate

Connect When we compare two things with different units, we have a rate. Here are some rates: • We need 5 sandwiches for every 2 people. • Oranges are on sale for $1.49 for 12. • Gina earns $4.75 per hour for baby-sitting. • There are 500 sheets on one roll of paper towels. The last two rates are unit rates. Each rate compares a quantity to 1 unit. Jamal skipped rope 80 times in 1 min. We say that Jamal’s rate of skipping is 80 skips per minute. We write this as 80 skips/min. To find unit rates, we can use diagrams, tables, and graphs.

Example 1 A printing press prints 120 sheets in 3 min. a) Express the printing as a unit rate. b) How many sheets are printed in 1 h?

A Solution a) Draw a diagram. The press prints 120 sheets in 3 min. So, in 1 min, the press prints: 120 sheets ! 3 # 40 sheets The unit rate of printing is 40 sheets/min. b) In 1 min, the press prints 40 sheets. One hour is 60 min. So, in 60 min, the press prints: 60 " 40 sheets # 2400 sheets The press prints 2400 sheets in 1 h.

Example 3 a) A human walks at an average speed of 5 km/h. What is this speed in metres per second? b) A squirrel can run at a top speed of about 5 m/s. What is this speed in kilometres per hour?

▲

A Solution a) In 1 h, a human walks 5 km. There are 1000 m in 1 km. So, to convert kilometres to metres, multiply by 1000. 5 km is 5 " 1000 m or 5000 m. There are 60 min in 1 h. 5000 So, in 1 min, a human walks: 60 # 83. 3 m There are 60 s in 1 min. 83.3 So, in 1 s, a human walks: 60 m # 1.3 8 m A human walks at an average speed of about 1.4 m/s. b) In 1 s, a squirrel can run about 5 m. There are 60 s in 1 min. So, in 1 min, a squirrel can run about: 5 m " 60 # 300 m There are 60 min in 1 h. So, in 1 h, a squirrel can run about: 300 m " 60 # 18 000 m There are 1000 m in 1 km. So, to convert metres to kilometres, divide by 1000. 18 000

18 000 m is 1000 km or 18 km. So, in 1 h a squirrel can run about 18 km. A squirrel can run at a top speed of about 18 km/h.

The smallest box costs the least, but that does not mean it is the best buy. Find the unit cost for each box of cereal, then compare the unit costs. It is difficult to calculate the cost of 1 g; so, we calculate the cost of 100 g for each box of cereal. Box A has mass 450 g and costs $4.69. 450 g is 4.5 " 100 g; so, the cost of 100 g of Box A is: $4.69 4.5 ! $1.04 Box B has mass 600 g and costs $6.49. $6.49 The cost of 100 g of Box B is: 6 ! $1.08 Box C has mass 1000 g and costs $7.89. $7.89 The cost of 100 g of Box C is: 10 ! $0.79 Each unit cost can be written as a unit rate.

A Solution Find the unit cost of each package, then compare the unit costs. Since 12 is a multiple of both 2 and 6, use 12 rolls as the unit. Package A: 12 rolls is 6 " 2 rolls; so, the cost of 12 rolls is: $0.99 " 6 # $5.94 Package B: 12 rolls is 2 " 6 rolls; so, the cost of 12 rolls is: $3.99 " 2 # $7.98 Package C: The cost of 12 rolls is $4.99. The least unit rate is $4.99/12 rolls, for Package C. So, the best buy is Package C.

Example 1 Herman is in the last round of the spell-a-thon in his school. A contestant receives 3 points for every word spelled correctly. Herman has 42 points. How many words has he spelled correctly?

▲

A Solution Let h represent the number of words Herman has spelled correctly. Then, the number of points is 3 times h, or 3h. Since Herman has 42 points, the algebraic equation is 3h ! 42. Use a balance-scales model to represent this equation. On the left side, show masses to represent 3h. On the right side, show a mass to represent 42. h

Since there are 3 identical unknown masses in the left pan, replace 42 g in the right pan with 3 equal masses. Each mass is 14 g. h

h

h

14g 14g 14g

So, each unknown mass is 14 g. h ! 14 h

14 g

Herman has spelled 14 words correctly. Check: 14 words worth 3 points each is 14 " 3 ! 42 points. The solution is correct.

Another strategy to solve an equation is to use algebra tiles. We rearrange the tiles to end up with variable tiles on one side and unit tiles on the other side.

Example 2 Jodee is also a contestant in the spell-a-thon. A contestant receives 3 points for every word spelled correctly. Because of a technical penalty, Jodee loses 5 points. She now has 19 points. How many words has Jodee spelled correctly?

▲

A Solution Let j represent the number of words Jodee has spelled correctly. Then, the number of points she receives is 3j. When the penalty is considered, the number of points is 3j # 5. So, the equation is: 3j # 5 ! 19

320

UNIT 6: Linear Equations and Graphing

On the left side, place tiles to represent 3j ! 5. On the right side, place tiles to represent 19.

To isolate the j-tiles on the left side, add 5 positive unit tiles to make zero pairs. To keep the balance, add 5 positive unit tiles to the right side, too.

There are 3 j-tiles. So, arrange the unit tiles into 3 equal groups.

The solution is j " 8. Jodee has spelled 8 words correctly. We can verify the solution by replacing each positive variable tile with 8 positive unit tiles. Then:

becomes:

Since there are now 19 positive unit tiles on each side, the solution is correct.

6.1 Solving Equations Using Models

321

Many different types of equations can be modelled and solved with algebra tiles. The opposite of x is !x. So, the red variable tile represents !x. As with the unit tiles, a positive variable tile and a negative variable tile combine to model 0. To make some equations easier to solve, it helps to make the variables positive.

Example 3 Use algebra tiles to solve: 8 " !6 ! 2x Verify the solution.

▲

A Solution Place tiles to model the equation.

To make the variable tiles positive, add 2 positive variable tiles to each side.

These tiles remain.

To isolate the variable tiles, add 8 negative unit tiles to each side. Remove zero pairs.

322

UNIT 6: Linear Equations and Graphing

Arrange the tiles remaining on each side into 2 equal groups.

The solution is x " !7. We can verify the solution. The original equation has negative variable tiles. If x " !7, then !x " !(!7) " 7 So, replace each variable tile in the original equation with 7 positive unit tiles. Then:

becomes:

Remove zero pairs.

Since there are now 8 positive unit tiles on each side, the solution is correct.

6.2 Solving Equations Using Algebra

327

Connect We can solve an equation using algebra. To help us visualize the equation, we think about a model, such as balance scales or algebra tiles. To solve an equation, we need to isolate the variable on one side of the equation. To do this, we get rid of the numbers on that side of the equation. When we solve an equation using algebra, we must also preserve the equality. Whatever we do to one side of the equation, we must do to the other side, too.

Example 1 Fabian charges $3 for each bag of leaves he rakes, and $5 for mowing the lawn. On Sunday, Fabian mowed 1 lawn and raked leaves. He earned $14. How many bags of leaves did Fabian rake? a) Write an equation to represent this problem. b) Use algebra tiles to solve the equation. Use symbols to record each step. c) Verify the solution using algebra.

▲

A Solution a) Let b represent the number of bags of leaves Fabian raked. An equation is: 3b ! 5 " 14 b) Model the equation with tiles. 3b + 5 = 14

Add 5 negative unit tiles to each side to isolate the variable. Remove zero pairs. 3b + 5 – 5 = 14 – 5

328

UNIT 6: Linear Equations and Graphing

These tiles remain. 3b = 9

Divide each side into 3 equal groups. 9 3b 3 = 3 b=3

Fabian raked 3 bags of leaves. c) To verify the solution, substitute b " 3 into 3b ! 5 " 14. Left side " 3b ! 5 Right side " 14 " 3(3) ! 5 "9!5 " 14 Since the left side equals the right side, b " 3 is correct. Fabian raked 3 bags of leaves.

It can be inconvenient to model an equation using algebra tiles when large numbers are involved, or when the solution is a fraction or a decimal.

Example 2 a) Use algebra to solve the equation: 16t # 69 " #13 b) Verify the solution.

Connect ➤ A charity sells pots of flowers for $10 each to raise money. 8 people pay with a $10 bill. 5 people pay with a $10 cheque. The total amount of money collected, in dollars, is:

• Add the total number of bills and cheques, then multiply by 10: 10 $ (8 # 5) ! 130

Or

• Multiply the number of bills by 10 and the number of cheques by 10, then add: 10 $ 8 # 10 $ 5 ! 130

We write: 10 $ (8 # 5) ! 10 $ 8 # 10 $ 5 We can use the same strategy to write two equivalent expressions for any numbers of bills and cheques. ➤ Suppose you are selling event tickets for $20 each. Some people pay with a $20 bill and some pay with a $20 cheque. Suppose b is the number of $20 bills you receive, and c is the number of $20 cheques you receive. The total amount of money you collect, in dollars, is:

• Add the total number of bills and cheques, then multiply by 20: 20 $ (b # c)

Or

• Multiply the number of bills by 20 and the number of cheques by 20, then add: 20b # 20c

6.4 The Distributive Property

We write: 20(b # c) ! 20b # 20c

Multiplication has been distributed over addition.

➤ We can also model the distributive property with algebra tiles. For example: To model 4(x # 5), you need 4 groups of 1 positive variable tile and 5 positive unit tiles.

To model 4x + 20, you need the same tiles, but their arrangement is grouped differently.

We can see that 4(x # 5) ! 4x # 20 because the two diagrams show the same numbers of tiles. When an expression for the distributive property uses only variables, we can illustrate the property with this diagram.

A related pair of x and y values is called an ordered pair. Some ordered pairs for this relation are: (1, 17), (2, 14), (3, 11), (4, 8), (5, 5), (6, 2), (7, –1), (x, y)

Example 1 Saskatoon Pizza charges $11 for a medium cheese pizza, plus $2 for each topping. An equation for this relation is c ! 11 " 2n, where n represents the number of toppings and c represents the cost of the pizza in dollars. a) Use the equation to create a table of values. b) Use the equation to find the cost of a pizza with 5 toppings. Check the answer. c) Use the equation to find how many toppings are on a pizza that costs $27.

▲

A Solution a) Since it is possible to order a pizza with no toppings, start the table of values with n ! 0. When n ! 0, the cost is: c ! 11 " 2n ! 11 " 2(0) ! 11 " 0 ! 11 A pizza with no toppings costs $11.

b) To find the cost of a pizza with 5 toppings, substitute n ! 5. c ! 11 # 2n ! 11 # 2(5) ! 11 # 10 ! 21 A five-topping pizza will cost $21. To check the answer, extend the table. In the second column, the value of c increases by 2 each time. So, when n ! 4, c ! 19; and when n ! 5, c ! 21. c) To find out how many toppings are on a pizza that costs $27, substitute c ! 27. 27 ! 11 # 2n Solve for n. 27 " 11 ! 11 # 2n " 11 16 ! 2n 16 2n 2 ! 2

8!n There are 8 toppings on a pizza that costs $27. To check the answer, calculate the cost of a pizza with 8 toppings. For 8 toppings, the cost is $11 plus 8 $ $2, which is $11 # $16 ! $27. Since this matches the given cost, the number of toppings is correct.

UNIT 6: Linear Equations and Graphing

To graph the relation

➤ Highlight the data. Click the graph/chart icon. Select XY (Scatter). Label the graph and the axes. Your graph may look similar to this:

The points lie on a line so the graph represents a linear relation. When the input increases by 1, the output increases by 3. The graph goes up to the right. This is because the total cost increases for every hour the “Rambler” is rented.

Check 1. Create a table of values for the “Northern” ATV.

Use the table of values to graph the relation. Describe the relationship between the two variables in the graph. 2. Suppose Chris likes both ATVs equally.

What conclusions can you make from the tables or the graphs to help Chris save money?

Choosing a Strategy Have you ever solved a problem, looked back, and realized you could have solved the problem a different way? There are many different strategies for solving problems. Try to solve this problem in at least two different ways.

The intramural dodgeball league at your school has 10 teams. Each team must play every other team exactly once. How many games need to be scheduled? Try these Steps

What information are you given in the problem? Is there any information that is not needed? What are you asked to find? Is an estimate okay or do you need an exact answer?

Strategies • Make a table. • Use a model. • Draw a diagram.

What strategies might work for this problem?

• Solve a simpler problem. • Work backward.

Try the strategy you think will work best. If you have trouble solving the problem, try a different strategy. You might have to try 3 or 4 strategies. Have you answered the question? Does your answer seem reasonable? How do you know you have found all the answers? 368

UNIT 6: Linear Equations and Graphing

• Guess and test. • Make an organized list. • Use a pattern. • Draw a graph. • Use logical reasoning.

Use at least two different strategies to solve each problem. 1. A rectangular field has length 550 m and width 210 m.

b) To decide which graph is appropriate, we need to know what the students want to display. For example, if they want to display the fraction of Grade 8 students who did not use a vending machine, then the circle graph is appropriate. The size of that sector can be compared to the whole graph.

If the students want to display the number of students who did not use a vending machine, then the bar graph or pictograph is appropriate. The height of the bar or the key can be used to find the number of students.

There are many ways in which graphs can be drawn to misrepresent data. Graphs like these may be found in the media to create false impressions. ➤ In this bar graph, the wider bar creates the impression that many more boys than girls scored higher than 80%. In fact, the number of girls who scored higher than 80% is greater than the number of boys.

a) The scale on the vertical axis does not start at 0. The upward trend of the graph suggests a rapid rise in salaries. This is not so. The increase in salary is: $35 700 – $34 500 = $1200 So, the mean annual increase is $200. b) To accurately display these data, the scale on the vertical axis should start at $0. Then use a scale of 1 square to represent $5000.

From this graph, it is clear that salaries have increased very little in 6 years.

➤ Each of Kelsey and Sidney has a standard deck of 52 playing cards. Each student turns over a card, then the students compare suits. Make a table to list the possible outcomes. What is the probability of each event? • Kelsey turns over a spade. • Sidney turns over a heart. • Kelsey turns over a spade and Sidney turns over a heart. ➤ In each situation above, how does the probability of each individual event relate to the probability of the combined events? Write a rule to find the probability of two independent events. Use your rule to find the probability of tossing heads on a coin and drawing a red tile from a bag that contains 2 red tiles and 3 green tiles. Use a tree diagram to check your probability.

407

Connect Two events are independent events when one event does not affect the other event. The pointer on this spinner is spun twice. Landing on red and landing on blue are examples of two independent events. Use a table to find the probability of landing on red twice. There are 9 possible outcomes: RR, RB, RG, BR, BB, BG, GR, GB, GG Only one outcome is RR. 1 So, the probability of landing on red twice is 9 .

This illustrates the rule below for two independent events. Suppose the probability of event A is written as P(A). The probability of event B is written as P(B). Then, the probability that both A and B occur is written as P(A and B). If A and B are independent events, then: P(A and B) ! P(A) " P(B)

Example 1 A coin is tossed and a regular tetrahedron labelled 5, 6, 7, and 8 is rolled. a) Find the probability of tossing heads and rolling an 8. b) Find the probability of tossing heads or tails and rolling an even number. Use a tree diagram to verify your answers.

408

UNIT 7: Data Analysis and Probability

▲

A Solution Since the outcome of tossing the coin does not depend on the outcome of rolling the tetrahedron, the events are independent. a) When the coin is tossed, there are 2 possible outcomes. One outcome is heads. 1 So, P(heads) ! 2 When the tetrahedron is rolled, there are 4 possible outcomes. One outcome is an 8. 1 So, P(8) ! 4 P(heads and 8) ! P(heads) " P(8) 1 1 !2"4 1

Four outcomes have heads or tails and an even number: heads/6, heads/8, tails/6, tails/8 So, the probability of tossing heads or tails and 4 1 rolling an even number is 8 , or 2 .

Example 2 The pocket of a golf bag contains 9 white tees, 7 red tees, and 4 blue tees. The golfer removes 1 tee from her bag without looking, notes the colour, then returns the tee to the pocket. The process is repeated. Find the probability of each event. a) Both tees are red. b) The first tee is not red and the second tee is blue.

A Solution Since the first tee is returned to the pocket, the events are independent. a) There are 20 tees in the pocket. 7

Use virtual manipulatives to investigate the probability of independent events.

You have used manipulatives, such as spinners, dice, and coins. Many Web sites offer virtual manipulatives. These Web sites imitate, or simulate, spinning pointers, rolling dice, or tossing coins. Your teacher will give you a Web address. Use the Web site to simulate tossing 3 coins 500 times. This is what you might see: The theoretical probability of tossing 3 tails is: P(T and T and T) " P(T) # P(T) # P(T) 1 1 1 " 2 # 2 # 2 "

First Nations artists use their artwork to preserve their heritage. Haida artist Don Yeomans is one of the foremost Northwest Coast artists. Look at this print called The Benefit, created by Don Yeomans. Describe any translations, reflections, or rotations you see. What other art have you seen that demonstrates transformations?

What You’ll Learn • Draw and recognize different views of objects made from rectangular prisms. • Identify shapes that will tessellate. • Create tessellations using transformations. • Identify tessellations in the environment.

Why It’s Important • We learn about the environment by looking at objects from different views. We can combine these views to get a better understanding of these objects. • Tessellations are found in the environment, in architecture, and in art.

We can use square dot paper to draw each view of the object. We ignore the holes in each face. To draw the views of an object: • Place the top view above the front view, and the side views beside the front view. This way, matching edges are adjacent. • Use broken lines to show how the views align. • Show internal line segments only where the depth or thickness of the object changes.

Top

When a photo of an object is not available, the object may be drawn on triangular dot paper. This is called isometric paper. Isometric means “equal measure.” The line segments joining 2 adjacent dots in any direction are equal. Here is an isometric drawing of the object made from linking cubes at the top of this page. Each vertical edge on the object is drawn as a vertical line segment. A horizontal edge is drawn as a line segment going up to the right or down to the left. The faces are shaded differently to give a three-dimensional look.

Art An IMAX® 3-D film gives the illusion of three-dimensional depth. The scenes are filmed from two slightly different angles. One camera lens represents the right eye and the other lens represents the left eye. The specialized IMAX 3-D Projection system allows separate right- and left-eye images to be projected onto the screen alternately at a rate of 48 frames (pictures) per second, which your brain naturally fuses into one 3-D image.

Constructing Tessellations Focus

Construct and analyse tessellations.

One of the basic ideas of Geometry is that of a plane. A plane is a flat surface. It has the property that a line joining any two points lies completely on its surface. What does this make you visualize?

Investigate Work with a partner. You will need tracing paper, plain paper, and a ruler. One partner draws a triangle on his paper. The other partner draws a quadrilateral on her paper. Trace your shape. Use the tracing to cover the paper with copies of your shape. Try to do this with no overlaps or gaps.

UNIT 8: Geometry

You can rotate or flip the shape to try to make it fit.

Compare your results with those of other classmates. Can congruent copies of any triangle cover a plane with no overlaps or gaps? Justify your answer. Can congruent copies of any quadrilateral cover a plane with no overlaps or gaps? Justify your answer. What do you notice about the sum of the angles at a point where vertices meet?

Connect When congruent copies of a shape cover a plane with no overlaps or gaps, we say the shape tessellates. The design created is called a tessellation. Not all polygons tessellate. ➤ This hexagon does tessellate.

90° 270°

90° + 270° = 360°

90° + 90° + 90° + 90° = 360°

➤ This hexagon does not tessellate. Here are two different pictures to illustrate this.

There are gaps among the hexagons.

For copies of a polygon to tessellate, the sum of the angles at any point where vertices meet must be 360°. We say the polygons surround a point.

Example 2 Look at each shape in Example 1 that does not tessellate. Try to combine it with other shapes in Example 1 so that the combined shape tessellates. How many ways can you do this?

90° ! 90° ! 180° " 360° 90° ! 270° " 360° At each point where vertices meet, the sum of the angle measures is 360°. So, the T shape tessellates. The shape in part a and 2 of the shapes in part c can be combined to make a rectangle.

90° 90° 90° 90°

90° ! 90° ! 90° ! 90° " 360° At each point where vertices meet, the sum of the angle measures is 360°. So, the rectangle tessellates. The shape in part b and 2 of the shapes in part c can be combined to make a rectangle.

UNIT 8: Geometry

90° 90° 90° 90°

90° + 90° + 90° + 90° = 360° At each point where vertices meet, the sum of the angle measures is 360°. So, the rectangle tessellates.

Examples 1 and 2 illustrate that a shape that does not tessellate may be combined with one or more shapes to make a new shape that tessellates. This new shape is called a composite shape. In the Practice questions, you will investigate to find which other shapes and combinations of shapes tessellate.

Unit Problem Creating Tessellating Designs M.C. Escher was a famous Dutch graphic artist. He designed many different tessellations.

You will create two designs in the Escher style. The first design is in the style of Knights on Horseback, on page 477.

Part 1 Use square dot paper or grid paper. Tessellate with a shape of your choice. Sketch a design on one shape. Repeat the sketch until every shape in the plane has the design. Use transformations to describe how to create the tessellation beginning with one shape.

Investigation

A Population Simulation Work with a partner.

Materials:

• •

a paper cup

An animal population changes from year to year depending on the rates of birth and death, and on the movement of the animals. A simulation is a model of a real situation. You will use a simulation to investigate how an animal population might decline. As you complete this Investigation, include your completed table, graph, and written answers to the questions. You will hand these in.

30 to 40 two-sided counters

•

0.5-cm grid paper

➤ The counters are the animals in your population. Count the number of animals. Record that number for Year 0 in the Population table. ➤ Put the counters in the cup. Choose which colour will be “face up.” Pour the counters from the cup. Counters that land face up represent animals that died or moved away during the first year. Set them aside. Count the number of animals left. 490

Investigation

Record that number as the population for Year 1. Calculate and record the decrease in population. Write the decrease as a fraction of the previous year’s population. Write the fraction as a percent. ➤ Place the counters representing live animals back in the cup. Repeat the experiment for Year 2. Record the data for Year 2 in the table. ➤ Continue the simulation. Record your data for up to 8 years, or until you run out of animals. ➤ Graph the population data. Plot Year horizontally and Number of Animals vertically. Explain your choice of graph. What trends do you see in the graph? Population Year

Approximately what fraction and percent of the population remain from year to year? ➤ Use the patterns to predict the population for Year 9. ➤ How long does it take the population of animals to decrease to one-half its original size? ➤ What would happen to a population if there were no births to add to the population each year? Take It Further

➤ Suppose you repeated this experiment, beginning with more animals. Would you see the same pattern? Explain. Combine your data with data of other students to find out. ➤ Which environmental factors may cause an animal population to change?
