Use variables to represent quantities in a real-world or mathematical problem, and construct simple equations and inequalities to solve problems by reasoning about the quantities.
Solve word problems leading to inequalities of the form 𝑝𝑥 + 𝑞 > 𝑟 or 𝑝𝑥 + 𝑞 < 𝑟, where 𝑝, 𝑞, and 𝑟 are specific rational numbers. Graph the solution set of the inequality and interpret it in the context of the problem.
Solve linear equations in one variable.
Solve word problems leading to equations of the form 𝑝𝑥 + 𝑞 = 𝑟 and 𝑝(𝑥 + 𝑞) = 𝑟, where 𝑝, 𝑞, and 𝑟 are specific rational numbers. Solve equations of these forms fluently. Compare an algebraic solution to an arithmetic solution, identifying the sequence of the operations used in each approach.
Solve linear equations with rational number coefficients, including equations whose solutions require expanding expressions using the distributive property and collecting like terms.
Analyze and solve linear equations and pairs of simultaneous linear equations.
Give examples of linear equations in one variable with one solution, infinitely many solutions, or no solutions. Show which of these possibilities is the case by successively transforming the given equation into simpler forms, until an equivalent equation of the form 𝑥 = 𝑎, 𝑎 = 𝑎, or 𝑎 = 𝑏 results (where 𝑎 and 𝑏 are different numbers).
