example 1: Convert the following into algebra to expressions:

  • "+": 4 more than a number
  • "-": 4 less than a number
  • "\times": Three "times" a number
  • "of": Three of a number OR half of a number

Modelling Cost of items

Jim is looking to buy a mixture of two coffee beans in StarCoffee. There are two different types of roast: Pike and Blonde. Jim is going to spend a total of \$24 on coffee beans. The Pike roast cost \$8/kg and the Blonde roast cost \$6/kg.

(a) Write an equation to represent Jim's purchases.

(b) Isolate the variable for the number of jellybeans in your equation.

(c) If Jim bought 250 g of Pike, how many grams of Blonde did he buy?

(d) If Jim bought 150 g Blonde, how many grams of Pike did he buy?

Geometry Set Up Example

ex The length of a rectangle is 4 cm less than 3 times the width. The perimeter is 36 cm. Find the width and length.

Therefore, the width of the rectangle is 5.5 cm and the length of the rectangle is 12.5 cm.

Intersection of Lines

example: Find the intersection point between the two lines below.

  • \displaystyle y = \frac{1}{2}x -1
  • \displaystyle y = -\frac{3}{4}x + 6

The two lines share the point of intersection say (a, b).

Since (a, b) is on both lines they can be now written in terms of a and b in the following way.

  • \displaystyle b = \frac{1}{2}a -1
  • \displaystyle b = -\frac{3}{4}a + 6


\displaystyle \left(\frac{28}{5}, \frac{9}{5}\right)
