MT.CC.7.EE. Expressions and Equations
Solve real-life and mathematical problems using numerical and algebraic expressions and equations.
7.EE.4. Use variables to represent quantities in a real-world or mathematical problem, including those represented in Montana American Indian cultural contexts, and construct simple equations and inequalities to solve problems by reasoning about the quantities.
7.EE.4.b. 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. For example: As a salesperson, you are paid $50 per week plus $3 per sale. This week you want your pay to be at least $100. Write an inequality for the number of sales you need to make, and describe the solutions.
