Give examples of linear equations in one variable with one solution, infinitely many solutions, or no solutions. Show which of these possibilities is the case by successively transforming the given equation into simpler forms, until an equivalent equation of the form x = a, a = a, or a = b results (where a and b are different numbers). b. Solve linear equations with rational number coefficients, including equations whose solutions require expanding expressions using the distributive property and collecting like terms. CCSS 8.EE.7 Grading Rubric Answers Score 1. 5 days; Solve the equation 40 + 16.25 x + 8.50 x = 163.75 to get x = 5. 2. 7 days; Solve the equation 40 + 15.25 x + 9.50 x = 213.25 to get x = 7. 3. 4 days; Solve the equation 45.99 + 18 x + 6.75 x = 144.99 to get x = 4. 2 2 2 4. The fee is the same for both kennels no matter how many days your dog stays there. The equation 40 + 16.25 x + 8.50 x = 40 + 15.25 x + 9.50 x has infinitely many solutions. 2 5. Sunbrook will always cost more than Lakeside. The equation 2 40 + 15.25 x + 9.50 x = 45.99 + 18 x + 6.75 x has no solution. Precision 1–3. Student understands how to solve equations with rational number coefficients. 4. Student recognizes when a linear equation has infinitely many solutions. 5. Student recognizes when a linear equation has no solution. Total Points 14 Big Ideas Math Performance Tasks 3 1 1 15 Copyright © Big Ideas Learning, LLC All rights reserved.
