# Converting Algebraic Expressions

[1]

Lesson Objective

Do Now

By the end of the lesson, we will be able to ____________________________________

_______________________________________________________________________
(EE.1) Apply properties of operations as strategies to add, subtract, factor, and expand linear expressions with rational coefficients.

Quiz Review

These are similar to the two most difficult quiz questions. Simplify them below.
1. Solve for the perimeter 2. Find the measure of one side given the perimeter

Content Review – Factoring

Think about the biggest whole number that can be divided out of each term.
1. 16a + 40 2. 26x + 39y + 52z

2(-3x – 4)
27x + 60

Integer Operations

Always ask yourself: ARE THE SIGNS THE SAME OR DIFFERENT?

Thought Process

1. 7 – 2
 Are the signs the same or different? _______________

 The signs are ____________, so I need to _____________ the values

2. -3 – 9
 Are the signs the same or different? _______________

 The signs are ____________, so I need to _____________ the values

3. -4 + 8
 Are the signs the same or different? _______________

 The signs are ____________, so I need to _____________ the values

4. -7 + 1
 Are the signs the same or different? _______________

 The signs are ____________, so I need to _____________ the values
Two Integer Procedures (TIPs)

1. When the signs are the _________________ we always _________________ the values and
keep their sign.

Ex. 5 + 4 = 9 Ex. -3 – 7 = -10

2. When the signs are the _________________ we always __________________ the values and
keep the sign from the bigger number.

Ex. 8 – 6 = 2 Ex. -9 + 4 = -5

Alternatives to Distribution

We can think of using the Distributive Property both before and after.

Applications of Distribution

1. 4(7x – 3)

 Rewrite as a product of both inside terms

 Simplify the expression

2. -3(-5a + 9)

 Rewrite as a product of both inside terms

 Simplify the expression

3. 2(-6m + 2)

 Rewrite as a product of both inside terms

 Simplify the expression

Distribution

3. Our awareness of distribution can go one step further. Look at Step 2.
4.

Example 1
Step 1. 5(3x + 8) Step 2. 5(3x) + 5(8) Step 3. 15x + 40

5.
6. Example 2
Step 1. -2(4x – 6) Step 2. -2(4x) + -2(-6) Step 3. -8x + 12

Essential Vocabulary

Teacher Model
Look at the two examples. When converting to an algebraic expression, read it aloud. Think
about the algebraic representation of each word in the math sentence.

Steps: Converting to Algebraic Expressions

1. Determine what the question is asking

2. Think about the words that associate with a basic operation

a. *Brainstorm below

3. Double-check your solution

Converting Math Sentences into Algebraic Expressions
When converting to an algebraic expression, read it aloud. Think about the algebraic
representation of each word in the math sentence. Write TWO conversions.
1. 4 + n = 12 (sum; plus)

2. x – 9 = 11 (difference; subtract)

3. 5a = 20 (product; multiply)

4. d ÷ 2 = 6 (quotient; divide)

5. 2x + 5 = 11

The English language has
given us endless possibilities
to say what we want. When
converting (and reading
about conversions) just be
aware of these choices.

Converting Algebraic Expressions into Math Sentences

Look at the algebraic expression carefully and decide how you want to express it in words.
Ex. 4 + n = 17

The sum of four and a number is seventeen

1. 15 – n = 9

2. 6x = 54

3. 18 ÷ x = 6

4. 2x + 4 = 12

5. 16 – 3x = 7

Think About It!

There are many ways to convert algebraic
expressions into math sentences. The list
below are all ways to relate to addition:

Sum, plus, add, more than

Partner Practice

When converting to an algebraic expression, read it aloud. Think about the algebraic
representation of each word in the math sentence. Write TWO sentences for each.

1. 4 + a = 56

2. 2b = 14

3. 4 – x = 34

4. 6n + 10 = 70

5. -8x – 5 = 12

6. 2x ÷ 4 = 20

Check for Understanding

Demonstrate what you have learned by solving the problems below. You may refer back to
your notes.

Convert the problems below into an algebraic expression. Write just one answer.
1. 3x + 6 = 12

2. 4n – 2 = 10

Standardized Test Practice

Read the question below and circle the best answer: A, B, C, or D.
1. Which of the following equations represents the expression below?
x ÷ 8 = 16
A. The quotient of sixteen and eight is a number
B. The quotient of eight and a number is sixteen
C. The quotient of eight and sixteen is a number
D. The quotient of a number and eight is sixteen

Error Analysis

The conversion from algebra to words has been mistranslated. First, identify this
improper wording. Then, rewrite the math sentence correctly.

6x – 3 = 14 The sum of six times a number and three is fourteen

Independent Practice

When converting to an algebraic expression, read it aloud. Think about the algebraic
representation of each word in the math sentence.

1. 2 + x = 29 2. 5p = 25

3. 21 ÷ b = 7 4. 4x – 2 = 18

5. 3 + n = 33 6. 6y = 24

7. 28 ÷ a = 4 8. 5x – 3 = 17

9. 2 + 4z = 26 10. 8m – 8 = 40
