MA.7.AR.1.1

Apply properties of operations to add and subtract linear expressions with rational coefficients.

Examples

begin mathsize 12px style open parentheses 7 x minus 4 close parentheses minus open parentheses 2 minus 1 half x close parentheses end style is equivalent to begin mathsize 12px style 15 over 2 x minus 6 end style.

Clarifications

Clarification 1: Instruction includes linear expressions in the form ax±b or b±ax, where a and b are rational numbers.

Clarification 2: Refer to Properties of Operations, Equality and Inequality (Appendix D).
