7th Grade


Alabama Course of Study Standards:
9.a

Solve word problems leading to equations of the form px + q = r and p(x + q) = r, where p, q, and r are specific
rational numbers. Solve equations of these forms fluently. Compare an algebraic solution to an arithmetic
solution, identifying the sequence of the operations used in each approach.

New York State Next Generation Learning Standards:
7.EE.4.a

Solve word problems leading to equations of the form px + q = r and p (x + q) = r, where p, q, and r are rational numbers. Solve equations of these forms fluently. Compare an algebraic solution to an arithmetic solution, identifying the sequence of the operations used in each approach. e.g., The perimeter of a rectangle is 54 cm. Its length is 6 cm. What is its width? Notes:  The words leading to in the standard may require students to simplify or combine like terms on the same side of the equation before it is in the form stated in the standard.
 This standard is a fluency expectation for grade 7.
