1.   Write an algebraic expression for the phrase t decreased by 7.
    A. t × 7 B. t 7
    C. t + 7 D. t ÷ 7
    Hint

  2.   Write 7 more than w is 25 as an algebraic equation.
    A. w 7 = 25 B. w + 7 = 25
    C. 7w = 25 D. 7 = 25 + w
    Hint

  3.   A music club is offering unlimited CDs for $6.00 each. There is also a $5.00 shipping cost. If m = the number of CDs, which equation can you use to determine how many CDs you can buy with $35.00?
    A. 6m + 5 = 35 B. 5m + 6 = 35
    C. 6m = 35 D. 5 + 6 = 35m
    Hint

  4.   Write 4 times k, increased by 9, is 45 as an algebraic equation.
    A. 4k = 45 B. 9k + 4 = 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. 28 + 290m = 150 B. 290 = 150m + 28
    C. 150 = 290 + 28m D. 150 + 28m = 290
