### Solve lesson 7.3, page 24, Math 7 Textbook Connecting knowledge, volume 2 – KNTT

Calculate the value of the expression:

a) 4x + 3 at x = 5.8.

b) y2 – 2y +1 at y = 2

c) (2m+n).(mn) at m = 5.4 and n = 3.2

## Detailed instructions for solving Problem 7.3

Solution method

Substitute the values ​​of the variables into the expression and calculate the value of the expression

Detailed explanation

a) Substituting x = 5.8 into the expression, we get:

4x + 3 = 4. 5.8 + 3 = 26.2

b) Substituting y = 2 into the expression, we get:

y2 – 2y +1 = 22 – 2.2 + 1 = 1

c) Substituting m = 5.4 and n = 3.2 into the expression, we get:

(2m+n).(mn) = (2.5,4 + 3.2) . (5.4 – 3.2) = 30.8

### Solve problem 7.4 page 24 Math 7 textbook Connecting knowledge volume 2 – KNTT

A farmer uses two pumps to water his garden. The first pump can pump 5 m per hour3 water. The second pump pumps 3.5 m . per hour3 water.

a) Write an algebraic expression expressing the amount of water pumped by the two machines, if the first pump runs for x hours and the second pump runs for y hours.

b) Using the result of question a, calculate the amount of water pumped by both machines when x = 2 (hours), y = 3 (hours).

## Detailed instructions for solving Problem 7.4

Solution method

a) Write the expression: Amount of pumpable water = amount of tap water 1 pump + amount of tap water 2 pumps

b) Replace the values ​​of x = 2 and y = 3 into the expression in sentence a

Detailed explanation

a) The algebraic expression expressing the pumpable water volume of the two machines is:

N = 5.x + 3.5.y

b) Substituting x = 2 and y = 3 into the expression, we get:

N = 5.2 + 3.5 . 3 = 20.5 (m3 )
