1.   Write 5 less than twice the length equals 11 as an algebraic equation.
    A. 5 < 2 + 11 B. - 5 = 11
    C. 2 - 5 = 11 D. 2 ÷ 5 = 11
    Hint

  2.   Write an equation for the second number is 3 times the first. Let x represent the first number and let y represent the second number.
    A. xy = 3 B. x = 3y
    C. y = x + 3 D. y = 3x
    Hint

  3.   Write The product of 7 and b is 56 as an algebraic equation.
    A. 7b = 56 B. 7b + 56
    C. 7 + b = 56 D. 7 ? 56 = b
    Hint

  4.   Write 4 times k, increased by 9, is 45 as an algebraic equation.
    A. 9k + 4 = 45 B. 4k = 45
    C. k + 9 = 45 D. 4k + 9 = 45
    Hint

  5.   For membership to an athletic club, it costs $150 to join and $28 per month of membership. Write an equation to figure out how many months it will be before the total cost is $290.
    A. 150 = 290 + 28m B. 150 + 28m = 290
    C. 28 + 290m = 150 D. 290 = 150m + 28
