SC.7.EEI. Expressions, Equations, and Inequalities
7.EEI.1. Apply mathematical properties (e.g., commutative, associative, distributive) to simplify and to factor linear algebraic expressions with rational coefficients.
7.EEI.4. Apply the concepts of linear equations and inequalities in one variable to real-world and mathematical situations.
7.EEI.4a. Write and fluently solve linear equations of the form ax+b=c and a(x+b)=c where a, b, and c are rational numbers.
7.EEI.4b. Write and solve multi-step linear equations that include the use of the distributive property and combining like terms. Exclude equations that contain variables on both sides.
