Hi, My scribe today is about that sheet that Mr . Harbeck told us to answer. The sheet I got was page 48 so if my questions are different than yours... too bad.

1. Enigma is __57___ old
Let x = age
- 1/3 x - 5 = 14
- x/3 - 5 = 14 + 5
- x = 19 x 3
- x= 57
- x/3 - 5 = 14
- 57/3 - 5 = 14
- 14 = 14

3. She rented ___26___ movies
Let x = movies
- 3x + 12 = 90
- 3x + 12 = 90 - 12
- x = 78/3
- x = 26
- 3x - 12 = 90
- 3(26) + 12 = 90
- 90 = 90

6. He ate ___22___ Chips
Let x = Chips
- 12x + 375 = 639
- 12x + 375 = 639 - 375
- x = 264/12
- x = 22
- 12x + 375 = 639
- 12(22) + 375 = 639
- 639 = 639

8. It took __13 _ Min.
Let x = minutes
- 25x + 75 = 400
- 25x + 75 = 400 - 75
- x = 375/26
- x = 13
- 25x + 75 = 400
- 25 (13) + 75 = 400
- 400 = 400

9. They need ___10800 wrapping paper
Let x = Wrapping paper
- 1/2 x - 400 = 5000
- x/2 - 400 = 5000 + 400
- x = 4600 x 2
- x = 10800
- x/2 - 400 = 5000
- 10800/2 - 400 = 5000
- 5000=5000

Just comment if i did something wrong. Thanks!

2008-05-14T08:38:13.748-05:00

Today in class, Mr. Harbeck taught us how to do a problem solving question. Now, I'm going to scribe how to do/answer a problem solving question using numbers. 1. The second of two numbers is 4 times the first. Their sum is 50. Find the numbers. The numbers are ____and____. (You can also write this at the end of the equation)4x would be on the right side of the + sign, because it is the second number. The first number is x.So, the equation would be like this:Let x = first #x + 4x = 50 5x = 50 (combined terms)x = 10The answer is 10, 40You must write the formula x + 4x = 5010 + 4(10) = 5010 + 40 = 5050 = 50x = 104x = 40 2. The larger of two numbers is 12 more than the smaller. Their sum is 84. Find the numbers.The numbers are ____,____,and ____. (You can also write this at the end of the equation) Two other # would equal x because we don't know anything about them. let x = small # 1 and small # 2x + 12 + x + x = 84 3x + 12 = 84 (combined terms) -12 -123x = 72 x= 24 The answer is 36, 24, 24 4. The second of two numbers is 5 more than twice the first. Their sum is 80. Find the numbers. The numbers are ____,and ____. (You can also write this at the end of the equation) let x = first#5 more than twice the first2x + 5the sum is 80= 80x + 2x + 5 = 803x + 5 = 80- 5 -53x = 753x = 252x+5 = 55x = 25The answer is 25, 55 6. Find two numbers whose sum is 92, if the first is 4 more than 7 times the second. Find the first number.The numbers are ____,and ____. (You can also write this at the end of the equation)let x = second #(7x + 4) + x = 92 8x + 4 = 92 (combined terms)- 4 -48x = 888x = 11(7x + 4) + x = 928(11) + 4 = 9288 + 4 = 9292 = 92x = 117x + 4 = 81The answer is 11, 92 8. Together, a necklace and a bracelet cost \$192. Find the price of each if the necklace costs 3 times as much as the bracelet.The price is____. (You can also write this at the end of the equation)Let x = bracelet 3x = Necklace3x + x = 1924x = 1924x = \$48 (\$48.00)3x = 3(48)= 144x = 48\$144.00+\$48.00\$192.00The price of a bracelet is \$48.00 and the necklace is \$144.00.[...]

My scribe is about Distributive Property
Terms that have the same variable parts are called like terms. The terms 2x, 4x, 5x are like terms. Unlike terms are 6x, 3x(squared), 4y. Only like terms can be combined.

To expand an expression with brackets means to remove the brackets by multiplying. This is done using the distributive property.

Distributive Property has 3 ways to do it.

For example for 3(y + 6)

Way #1
3(y + 6) = 3y + 4 x 6
= 3y + 18
Way #2

(image)

Way #3
x + 6
x + 6
x + 6
3x + 18

So Distrubtive Property is basicaly expanding the expression.
The best way to use distrubtive property will probably be Way #3 and #1 if Way #2 helps you understand better then use it.

When Mr. Jerema came in and substitute for Mr. Harbeck, we did some work on algebra.
We had to do two questions on a piece of blue sheet that Mr. Jerema gave us and we had to draw a table, describe the recursive pattern, describe the functional pattern and do the algebraic equation. After doing all of that, we had to draw a graph on graph paper.

So, the first one we had to do was called Car Repairs. On Car Repairs, Mr. Jerema drew a graph on the board, that looked like this.
(image)

We then had to draw a table and describe the recursive pattern.
(image)
After that, we do the algebraic equation and we described it in words.
(image)

Our second one was called Harbeck's Training, and we had to do the same thing as Car Repairs, but with different numbers.

On part one of the math test, we were given eight algebraic equations. Half were written out in numeric form, the other half, as written in words. For the numeric equations, we had to write down the correct word form for that equation. For example, the numerical equation would be 7x + 5x, and then we'd have to write it as seven times a number increased by 5 times a number. Like this: When we were dealing with the written form, the equation would be like, nine centimeters less than 3/4 of length x. Then we'd have to write it into a numeric equation, which would be 3/4x - 9. Like this:These type of questions ended the first part.For Part Two, we were to complete a graph. We were given a graph and the first 3 figures of a pattern. The first 3 figures of the pattern were these:The graph looked like this : You had to fill three sides of the graph with the appropriate title.We also had to create a T - Table showing our understanding of the pattern. It kind of looked like this : After we completed the chart, and had it all filled out, we had to come up with an algebraic equation on how you would get from x to y. This was the equation needed:You need to have the x equal the figure number and the y equal the number of squares. In our test these were what we needed to get the questions correct:This ends the test, hope you guys learned a lot!!![...]

Todays class is about the surface area of a cylinder.

The Net of a cylinder(image)

the cylinder has 3 shapes, 2 circles and a rectangle. To get the surface area of a cylinder follows this formula:

SA = (Pi x r²) + (2 x Pi x r) + ( Pi x r²)

In class we had a an example question: the height is 10 and the radius is 5. The circumference is the length of the rectangle so you get the area of the 3 shapes and add them together to ge the Surface area.

SA = (3.14 x 25) + (2 x 3.14 x 5) + ( 3.14 x 25)
= 78.5 + 314 + 78.5
= 417

Surface Area & Volume of a Rectangular Prism

Surface Area
S.A. = 2 (h x L) + 2 (L x w) + 2 (h x w)
(image) h = 5cm
L = 10 cm
w = 2 cm

2 (5cm x 10cm) + 2 (10cm x 2cm) + 2 (5cm x 2cm) = 160cm²

WHY IS IT A SQUARED CM?
-The surface area of a rectangular prism is measured as SQUARED CM because a surface area has 2 dimensions.

Volume
V = L x w x h
(image) L = 10cm
w = 2cm
h = 5cm

10cm x 2cm x 5cm = 100cm³
According to commutative property of multiplication, the order of the numbers that we multiply doesn't matter. That means, if you mix up the numbers, you'll still get the same answers.
eg: 10 x 2 x 5 = 100cm³
2 x 5 x 10 = 100cm³
5 x 2 x 10 = 100cm³

Here's another way:
(L x w) x h = Volume
(10cm x 2cm) x 5cm = 100cm³
(2cm x 5cm) x 10cm = 100cm³

WHY IS IT A CUBIC CM?
-The volume of a rectangular prism is measured as CUBIC CM because the volume of a certain rectangular prism has 3 dimensions.

In this bob I will be showing you about the surface area and the volume of a rectangular prism.....
The Surface Area.....
- How to find the top and bottom?
A= (LxW) + (LxW)
-How to find the front and back?
A=2(HxW)
- How to find the sides ?
A= 2(HxW)(image) ( This is the net of the rectangular prism looks like)

- To solve a for the surface area the you have to use a formula and the formula is....

2(Lxw) + 2(HxL) + 2(HxW) = SA
- example:
H=2 cm
L= 3 cm
W= 4 cm
2(LxW) + 2(HxL) + 2(HxW) = SA
2(3 cm x 4 cm) + 2( 2 cm x 3 cm) + 2( 2 cm x 4 cm)
12 cm x 12 =144 cm
6 cm x 6 cm=36 cm
8 cm x 8 cm=64 cm
144 + 36 + 64 = 244 cm
SA = 244 cm squared

The volume.......
- The volume's formula is very simple ...
(LxW) x H
-example

L= 2 cm
H= 3 cm
W= 4 cm
v=(LxW) x H
v=(2 cm x 4 cm) x 3 cm
v=8 cm x 3 cm
v=24 squared cm

For this BOB, I will show you what I know about getting the surface area and volume of a rectangular prism...

SURFACE AREA...
In getting the surface area, you should know the formula on how to get the area of each side...Just remember that the front and back sides, the top and bottom sides, and the left and right sides have the same size or measurements...

Formula on how to get the area of the:
FaB = 2(Lxh)
TaB = 2(LxW)
LaR = 2(hxW)

L = 10 cm
h = 8 cm
W = 6 cm

(image)

FaB = 2(Lxh)
= 2(10 cm x 8 cm)
= 2(80 cm2)
= 160 cm2
TaB = 2(LxW)
= 2(10 cm x 6 cm)
=2(60 cm2)
= 120 cm2
LaR = 2(hxW)
= 2(8 cm x 6 cm)
= 2 (48cm2)
= 96 cm2
After you get the area of each side, you will add them all up...*You will times them by 2 since they have the same size...

SA = 160 cm2 + 120 cm2 + 96 cm2 = 376cm2

VOLUME...
In getting the volume, you just have to follow a simple formula...which is, LxWxh...

(image)

LxWxh
15 cm x 5 cm x 10 cm
750 cm3 = volume..

**sorry for the small pictures and some (or all) of the measurements actually don't look right for their sizes..

This blog is about the steps to find the surface area and the volume for a cube and a rectangular prism. When doing work for a cube or a rectangular prism you need to include the 3D diagram and their net.This is the 3D version of a cube :This is the cube's net :This is an example of a rectangular prism :This is it's net :There are several ways to find a surface area for both of the shapes. One way for the cube is this :It is clear that if you get the areas of each square in the cube you already can solve the surface area of the cube. You can solve the area of each side by multiplying the two different measurements that make the side. For example, if one side is made up by 2 lengths and 2 widths, you multiply the width and length together to get the area. So if you already have all the areas, just add all six sides together and get the Surface Area.There are two steps used to solve both of the shapes. I used one of them on the cube.All you have to do is find the base and multiply that answer with the height. To find the "base" of a shape, all you have to do is multiply it's length with the width.Now moving on to the rectangular prism. The step I used for this shape can also be used on a cube.This step take more time. If you multiply length and width, you are finding the area for the Top or the Bottom parts of the shape. If you multiply length and height, you are finding the area for the Front or Back. And if you multiply width and height, you obviously get the area for one of the two sides. Since there are six sides. Once you find the area for one side of the shape, times it by two to get the other side. For example, if you find the area for the Top, just multiply it by two so you can get the area for the Bottom also.Yes, these steps on finding the volume of a rectangular prism can also be used to find the volume of a cube :This explanation is quite simple. If you multiply the length and width, find the answer and multiply that to the height. Once your done that, you have solved the volume.Now...you guys should know how to find the Surface Area and the Volume of a Cube and also a Rectangular Prism.[...]

On this bob I'll be explaining how to get the surface area and volume of a cube and a rectangular prism and I'll also show you the net.
this is a cube:
L = length
H= Height
W= Width
(image)

this the net of a cube
(image)

how to find the surface area and volume of a cube.
To get the surface area of a cube first you have to find all the area of the squares in the net.
the cube has a equal sides, if all sides was 3 cm you just have to find the area of one box and all the box are the same.
like this:
(image) you just have to add all the area.
9cm2 + 9cm2 + 9cm2 + 9cm2 + 9cm2 + 9cm2 = 54cm2
or
SA= 6 (9cm2)
= 54cm2

or
S.A=2(l x W) + 2(h x l) + 2(h x w)

Volume
Formula:
V=L x W x H
V=(3cm x 3cm )x 3cm
V=9cm x 3cm
V=27 cubic cm
Rectangular prism.

This is the net of rectangular prism looks like:
(image) to get the surface area of rectangular prism you need to use the formula:
SA= 2 (l x w) + 2 (h x w) 2 + (h x l).

L = 5cm, W = 2cm, H = 6cm

SA= 2 (l x w) + 2 (h x w) + 2 (h x l)
SA= 2 (5cm x 2cm) + 2 (6cm x 2cm) + 2 (6cm x 5cm)
SA= 2 (25cm squared) + 2 (36cm squared) + 2 (30cm squared)
SA=625cm squared + 1296cm squared + 900cm squared
SA=2821cm squared

HOW TO SOLVE THE SURFACE AREA AND VOLUME OF A RECTANGULAR PRISM:

A rectangular prism has 2 ends and 4 sides. Opposite sides have the same area. The surface area is the sum of the areas of all six sides.
How to find the surface area of Rectangular Prisms:
Find the area of two sides (Length x Height)2 sides
Find the area of adjacent sides (Width x Height)2 sides
Find the area of ends (Length x Width)2 ends
Add the three areas together to find the surface area
Example: The surface area of a rectangular prism 5 cm long, 3 cm. wide and 2 cm. high = (5 x 2)2 + (3 x 2)2 + (5x 3)2 = 20 + 12 + 30 = 62 cm2.

volume has a simple formula
v=lxwxh
v=5cmx3cmx2cm
v=30cm3

What i know all about surface area and the volume of a cube and rectangular prism:

Surface Area (SA): The extent of a 2-dimensional surface enclosed within a boundary.
Volume (V): The amount of space that and object or substance occupies.

To find out the surface area, first you have to make it into a net.
Find out the area of the top and bottom (L x W)
Find out the area of the front and back (H x L)
Find out the area of the sides (H x W)

(image)

To find out the Volume, you use the formula L x W x H

L = 5cm

W = 3cm
H = 10cm
- 5cm x 3cm x 10cm
V = 150 cubic cm

On this BOB, I will be talking about the surface area and a volume of a rectangular prism and a cube. I will also show pictures so that it could make it easier to understand.The surface area of a rectangular prism is covered with six rectangles.Although we don't have to figure out all six of them since top and bottom are the same, right and left are the same, and also front and back of it is the same. Height, lenght, width are the lenghts of the 3 sides.The surface area of a cube is the area of six squares that covers the whole thing. The formula of the surface area of a rectangular prism and a cube is the same.Area of Top and Bottom = 2(L x W) Area of Front and Back = 2(H x L) Area of Both Sides = 2(H x W) The whole formula of the surface area of the rectangle is 2(lxw)+2(hxl)+2(hxw)An example of surface area;The volume of a rectangular prism and a cube can be found by the formula: volume=length x width x height or bxhAn example would be; [...]

For this BOB, im going to talk about surface area and volume of a triangular prism and cube.

Cube:
VOLUME
- To get the volume of a cube , you would have to do l x w x h , (length x width x height).

SURFACE AREA
- To get the surface area of a cube , you would need to draw a net. If all sides are labelled 4 cm , you would have to do , 2 x (l x w) + 2 x (h x l) + 2 x (w x h) = sa . You add them together and that'll e you answer.

Look at pictures .

surface area solution:

volume solution:

Rectangular Prism:
VOLUME
-
to get the volume of a rectangular prism , it's mostly the same as geting the volume for a cube. It has 6 sides , like a cube.

SURFACE AREA
- to get the surface area of a rectangular prism , it's alos mostly the same as getting the surface area of a cube.

Look at the pictures.
