The purpose of the following exercises is to gain experience with the rules of arithmetic
precedence (also known as order of operations - see page 17 of your text). Evaluate each
expression at the values given. Write your answers as decimal numbers with at least 4
digits (like 1.234, or 123.4). You may use a calculator.
!
1.) Let a = 10, b = 3, c = 13.
4.) Let a = 2.9, b = 4.7, c = 6.1, d = 8.3.
a &quot; b /c = __________
a &quot; b /c &quot; d = __________
!
!
(a &quot; b) /c = __________
!
!
2.) Let r = 7.
!
4 / &quot; # r = __________
!
!
a &quot; (b /c &quot; d) = __________
!
a &quot; b /(c &quot; d) = __________
!
4 /(&quot; # r) = __________
5.) Let r = 2.3.
!
!
4 / &quot; # r = __________
3.) Let a = 2.5, b = 4.9, c = 7.3.
!
!
a &quot; b /c = __________
!
!
!
!
(a &quot; b) /(c &quot; d) = __________
4 /(&quot; # r) = __________
!
!

6.) Recall the properties of real numbers that we discussed in class (see page 23 of your
text). For each pair of algebraic expressions listed below, enter a T (true) in the blank if
the expressions are equal, and enter an F (false) otherwise.
a + b _____ b + a
a + b 2 _____(a + b) 2
a + b + c _____ a + (b + c)
a 2 + b 2 _____(a + b) 2
a &quot; b &quot; c _____ a &quot; (b &quot; c)
a &quot; b &quot; c _____ a &quot; (b &quot; c)
a # (b + c) _____ a # b + a # c
a /b /c _____ a /(b /c)
1/(a + b) _____1/a + a /b
1/a /a _____1/(a &quot; a)
!
7.) Enter a T or an F in each answer space below to indicate whether the corresponding
statement is true or false.
!
!
_____ &quot; # 3.1416
_____&quot; 2 # &quot;2.5 # &quot;3
_____\$ 2 # \$2.5 # \$3
_____&quot;1 &lt; &quot;8
8.) Enter the appropriate symbol &lt;,!=, or &gt; below.
3_____&quot;1
x 2 _____ | x |2
&quot;2 _____&quot;1
3(x + 1) _____ 3x + 3
x _____ x + 1
&quot;1_____ | x |
! below with the letters labeling their equivalent
9.) Match the verbal statements given
inequalities.
_____ x is less than -7
A. &quot;7 &lt; x
_____ The distance from x to -7
is less than or equal to 2
B. x &quot; #7
_____ x is greater than -7
_____ The distance from x to -7
is more than 2
