Be Careful! : Be Careful! What happens when a number is multiplied by a fraction?
Algebra : Algebra Write and solve onestep equations using all four operations
Addition
Subtraction
Multiplication
Division 2b + 30 = 50
B = 10
Algebra Example Question : Algebra Example Question Samantha earns $500 per month which is $150 more than Roberta earns per month.
Which equation could be used to determine the amount of money Roberta earns per month (r)? 500 = r – 150
500 = r + 150
500 = 150 / r
500 = 150 r
Algebra Example Question : Algebra Example Question A professional baseball player signs a contract to earn $14.76 million for the next three years.
The equation can be used to determine the average amount of money, in millions of dollars, that the player will earn each year (x). 3 x = 14.76
What is the average amount of money the player will earn each year?
$4.42 million
$4.92 million
$11.76 million
$17.76 million

Probability Example Question : Probability Example Question Tim rolls a 6sided number cube that has sides numbered 1 through 6.
What is the probability of the number cube landing with a number greater than 2 facing up? 1/3
0.5
2/3
0.75
Probability Example Question : Probability Example Question Paul has a bag containing 7 cubes, each with a symbol printed on them.
There are 3 cubes that have stars, and 4 cubes that have moons.
Paul stated that the probability of randomly choosing a cube with a star was ¾ , but he made a mistake. What mistake did Paul make? He used the number of cubes with stars in the denominator instead of the number of cubes with moons.
He used the number of cubes with moons in the denominator instead of the total number of cubes.
He used the number of cubes with moons in the numerator instead of the number of cubes with stars.
He used the number of cubes with stars in the numerator instead of the total number of cubes.
