2 Introduction Level 7 Introduction Welcome to Level 7 of. Problems in Level 7 are the most difficult in the Work Keys system. The mathematics used is still fairly straightforward. However, more emphasis is placed on being able to understand the problem. You will have to read them carefully. There many be many details and steps of reasoning involved. There also may be additional information that is not actually needed to solve the problem. Copyright 2000, SAI Interactive, Inc. For use only by KeyTrain licensed users. Page 2
3 Introduction Skills Required in Level 7 Include:  Performing several steps of reasoning and multiple calculations  Solving problems involving more than one unknown and/or nonlinear functions  Calculating the percentage of change  Calculating multiple areas and volumes of sphere, cylinders and cones  Setting up and manipulating complex ratios and proportions  Determining the best economic value of several alternatives  Finding mistakes in multiplestep calculations. Complex Formulas or Ratios In Level 7, some problems will require you to manipulate more complex formulas or ratios. For example, instead of finding the area of a circle from its diameter, you may need to find the diameter given its area. This may also be combined with other details such as converting units of measurement to solve the problem. The concept of nonlinear functions will be introduced. An example is determining the gas mileage of a car at different speeds. You will not need to create such equations, but you will need to understand information such as this.

6 Multiple Steps ½ % x Level 7 Multiple Steps In these multiple step problems, you may be required to solve several intermediate problems. For instance you may need to calculate the gas mileage of your car during a trip. But first you would need to calculate the length of the trip from several odometer readings or from a map. Then you would need the amount of gas used by looking at gas receipts and the gas gauge. Finally, you could determine the mileage by dividing the number of miles by the number of gallons of gas used.

7 Multiple Steps Types of Multiple Step Problems Types of multiple step problems you may see include:  Whole Number Math  Fractions  Decimals  Percentages In these multiple step problems, you need to break up the problem into smaller parts. Careful emphasis must be placed on methodically working through the problem. Recall the standard procedure for word problems: 1) First, read the problem carefully. What is the problem asking? For each step in the problem, determine the number of facts you are trying to find. 2) What are the facts? Lay out the known facts. Do you have the facts you need to solve the problem? You may not have them immediately  you may need to solve another hidden problem first to get the facts you need. There may be additional unneeded information. 3) Set up and solve intermediate (hidden) problems. Solve the hidden problems to get the facts you need. 4) Solve for the answer. Now that you have the information you need, you can solve the original problem for the information that you were actually asked. 5) Check that the answer is reasonable. Be sure to check your answer!

8 Multiple Steps Percentages Recall that a percentage means the number of parts out of 100. Percentages can also be written as a fraction or a decimal. Some common examples are: % % % Problems in Level 7 may deal with more complicated percentages. Some percentages may be less than 1% or more than 100%. To work with these percentages, use the same rules as with percentages between 1% and 100%. Copyright 2000, SAI Interactive, Inc. For use only by KeyTrain licensed users. Page 8
9 Multiple Steps Multiple Step Word Problem Here is an example of a word problem with a percentage of less than 1%: The table below shows how a leading automobile dealer plans to spend its advertising dollars for the coming year. If this company plans to increase its budget by 5% to $85,000 next year, how much will be spent on farm journal ads? Advertising Budget 48.5% Television 23% Magazines 20% Newspapers 7% Radio 1% Billboards 0.5% Farm Journals 1) First, read the problem carefully. What is the problem asking? How much will be spent on farm journal ads? 2) What are the facts? $85,000 total budget 0.5% on farm journals (The fact that the budget is 5% over last year s is not needed information.) 3) Set up and solve the problem. Farm ads 0.5% of $85, % $425 $85,000 $85,000 4) Check that the answer is reasonable. 1 1% of $85,000 would be $850, so % is $ Copyright 2000, SAI Interactive, Inc.

10 Multiple Steps Multiple Step Word Problem Here is another example of a multiple step problem involving percentages: You select several items from a supply catalog. The list price of the items is $4.29, $2.13, $1.25, $17.95 and $0.85. Your company gets a 10% discount on all items in the catalog. How much should you make out a purchase order for, including the $10 shipping charge and 5.25% sales tax? 1) First, read the problem carefully. What is the problem asking? What is the total cost of the order? 2) What are the facts? Item costs are as shown. 10% discount on all items Add $10 for shipping Add 5.25% sales tax 3) Setup and solve the problem. First you need the total cost of items : $ $ $ $ Second, apply 10% discount by subtracting 10% from total of items : $ (0.10 $26.47) $ $2.65 $23.82 (round to nearest cent.) Figure 5.25% tax : 5.25% of $ $23.82 $1.25 Figure total : Total Items + Tax + Shipping $0.85 $ $26.47 $ $10 $35.07 Copyright 2000, SAI Interactive, Inc. For use only by KeyTrain licensed users.

11 Multiple Steps Decimals Numbers can be expressed in different forms. One of these is called decimals. Look at the following charts: thousands hundreds tens ones tenths hundreths thousandths ten thousandths Decimal Fraction Percent 1, , ,000% 10,000% 1,000% 100% 10% 1% 0.1% 0.01% The value of a single digit depends on its place in the number. Each decimal place in the number is worth ten times the value of the decimal place to its right. For instance, 100 is ten times as much as 10. Likewise, 0.01 is ten times as much as Copyright 2000, SAI Interactive, Inc. For use only by KeyTrain licensed users. Page 11
12 Multiple Steps Rounding Decimals As was first discussed in Level 3, rounding is the process of estimating a number to a particular decimal place. This is especially common in dealing with money. In the previous example, a 10% discount of $26.47 (2.647) was rounded to the nearest penny ($2.65). To round a number to a given place: Step 1) Find the rounding place (the decimal place you want to round to) Step 2) Look at the digit to the right of the rounding place. If it is less than 5  leave the digit in the rounding place unchanged. If it is 5 or more  increase the digit in the rounding place by one. Step 3) Remove all digits to the right of the rounding place. For instance, round to the nearest thousandth: thousandths place is digit to the right is 5, so round the 7 up to 1. So the number rounded to the nearest thousandth is Round to the nearest thousandth: thousandth place is digit to the right is a 4, leave the rounding digit alone. So the number rounded to the nearest thousandth is Copyright 2000, SAI Interactive, Inc. For use only by KeyTrain licensed users. Page 12

25 Multiple Steps Summary Multiple Steps % ½ x In many reallife problems, you will not be given the exact numbers you need to solve the problem. You may have to make several different calculations to get the data you need. The key to solving these problems is to break the larger problem down into smaller ones. Determine the pieces of information you need to solve the problem asked. Do you have these pieces? If not, can you calculate them from the information you do have? You have practiced these skills here. You will use these techniques again in the other sections of this lesson. Copyright 2000, SAI Interactive, Inc. For use only by KeyTrain licensed users. Page 25
26 Volumes and Areas Level 7 Volumes and Areas Volume is the space enclosed or capacity within a threedimensional figure, such as a box or room. Volume is measured in cubic units. It tells you how much the figure will hold. Level 6 introduced the method for calculating the volume of rectangular boxes. This section will also show how to calculate the volume of some more complex shapes. These shapes are cylinders, cones and spheres. This section will also include exercises in calculating the volumes and areas of more complex shapes by dividing them into simple shapes. Copyright 2000, SAI Interactive, Inc.

33 Volumes and Areas Tips to Remembers 1) π (or pi) is the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter. For the Work Keys assessment, use ) The radius of a circle (r) is the distance from the center of the circle to a point on the circle. It is onehalf of the diameter. 3) Squaring a number means to multiply the number by itself. So the radius squared means multiply the radius by the radius (5 2 5 x 5 25) 4) Cubing a number means to use the number as a factor 3 times. (5 3 5 x 5 x 5 125) Copyright 2000, SAI Interactive, Inc.

39 Volumes and Areas Multiple Areas Many problems in the workplace involve finding the area of an irregular (odd shaped) figure. This can be quite difficult. However you might be able to break the irregular figure into several parts which are regular figures. This would be like making a puzzle where all the pieces are square, rectangles, triangles or circles. Then you can find the area easily. To find the area of an irregular figure: 1) Break the irregular figure down into several standard figures, 2) Find the area of each standard figure, and 3) Add the area of the standard figures together.

48 Volumes and Areas Summary Volumes and Areas This section discussed methods for calculating the volume of common shapes. These include boxes, spheres, cylinders and cones. The volume is used to determine how much space the shape contains. The section also discussed how more complicated shapes may be broken down into a collection of simple shapes. In this way you can calculate the area or volume of many different kinds of figures. As you have seen, these skills can be useful for planning many different kinds of projects. By determining the area or volume, you can predict the amount of materials available or needed. Copyright 2000, SAI Interactive, Inc. For use only by KeyTrain licensed users. Page 48
49 Ratios and Proportions Level 7 Ratios and Proportions A ratio is a comparison of numbers. For example, the number of minutes in an hour to the number of minutes in a day can be said as: and can be written as: 60 to :1440 or 60/1440 which simplifies to 1/24.

50 Ratios and Proportions Proportions A proportion is a statement that two ratios are equal. For example, suppose you can assemble 2 machine parts in 30 minutes. Then you know that 4 machine parts would take 60 minutes. This is because the ratio of parts to minutes is the same: 2 parts 30 minutes 4 parts 60 minutes This is a proportion. In your mind, you used this proportion to determine that 4 parts would take 60 minutes. You can use proportions to resize, or ratio, many tasks you see in the workplace. Cross Multiplication Ratios were used in earlier levels of this course. In this level, the problems may  contain a mixture of fractions and decimals  contain different units of measurement  contain more difficult computations. However the basic calculations remain the same. These usually involve crossmultiplication. In a proportion the cross products of the ratios are equal: 2 parts 4 parts 30 minutes 60 minutes Copyright 2000, SAI Interactive, Inc. For use only by KeyTrain licensed users. Page 50

57 Ratios and Proportions Summary Ratios and Proportions A proportion is a comparison of two equal ratios or rates. Using proportions allows you to scale up or down information. This is useful to predict how things can change as a business grows. The units of measurement used in a ratio do not need to all be the same, as long as they are consistent. When the cross product is multiplied, the units for both cross products must be the same. Copyright 2000, SAI Interactive, Inc. For use only by KeyTrain licensed users. Page 57

73 Multiple Unknowns Level 7 Multiple Unknowns Most problems require that you solve for one answer. Some problems, however, have more than one number that you must find. These are known as multiple unknowns. Earlier sections have had problems with multiple unknowns. In these earlier problems, you could solve for one unknown, and then solve for the other. For instance, you could find the sum of several costs, then find the sales tax due on the total order. In other types of problems, the two or more unknowns are linked more closely. It can be difficult to solve for one without the other. Copyright 2000, SAI Interactive, Inc. For use only by KeyTrain licensed users. Page 73
74 Multiple Unknowns Problems with Multiple Unknowns This section deals with types of problems where the multiple unknowns are closely linked. For instance: Width? If the perimeter of a rectangle is known to be 26 ft., and the length is 5 ft. longer than the width, what is the width and length? Length? Perimeter 26 ft. The length is 5 ft. more than the width. You cannot directly solve for the length without knowing the width. Neither can you directly solve for the width without knowing the length. However there are methods to solve this kind of problem fairly easily. Solving Multiple Unknown Problems These types of problems can be solved using two different methods: Substitution Method Both unknowns are represented in terms of one variable (or letter). You substitute one variable in terms of the other variable to solve the equation. Creating a New Equation Use two different variables and two equations. You can then create a new equation by adding or subtracting the two equations. The goal in both cases is to eliminate one variable in order to solve for the other variable.

75 Multiple Unknowns Solving with Substitution Width? Length? Perimeter 26 ft. The length is 5 ft. more than the width. You know that the perimeter of a rectangle is: Perimeter (2 x Width) + (2 x Length) 26 or 2W + 2L 26 For the substitution method: Use the letter W to represent the width. Using the letter W like this is called a variable. Then you can write the length as W + 5, so Perimeter 2W + 2(W + 5) 26 Multiplying out: 2W + 2W Collecting like terms: 4W 16 Dividing both sides by 4: W 4 Then you know that the length Copyright 2000, SAI Interactive, Inc.

76 Multiple Unknowns Solving by Creating a New Equation Width? Length? Perimeter 26 ft. The length is 5 ft. more than the width. You know that the perimeter of a rectangle is: Perimeter (2 x Width) + (2 x Length) 26 or 2W + 2L 26 Also you know that the length is 5 more than the width: L W + 5 Now the trick is to add or subtract the tow equations to eliminate one variable. Multiply the second equation by 2: 2L 2W + 10 Subtract 2W from each side: 2L  2W 10 Now subtract: 2L + 2W 26  (2L  2W 10) 4W 16 So W 4 and L Copyright 2000, SAI Interactive, Inc.

94 Nonlinear Functions Level 7 Nonlinear Functions People in some occupations use nonlinear equations. An equation describes how one thing changes with another. For instance, an equation might describe the distance it takes to stop a car traveling at different speeds. The difference in a nonlinear equation is that the ratio between the two is not constant. Therefore it would not take exactly twice the distance to stop a car going 60 miles per hour as one going 30 miles per hour. It would actually take more than twice the distance. In this lesson you will not be expected to create nonlinear equations. However you should be able to use graphs, tables and formulas that represent this type of information. An example of a nonlinear equation might be the gas mileage of a car at different speeds. Given a table or graph showing the gas mileage at different Copyright 2000, SAI Interactive, Inc.

96 Nonlinear Functions Examples of Nonlinear Functions Some other examples of nonlinear functions include: Braking distance for a car traveling at various speeds on dry concrete. Distance versus time for a car accelerating at a constant rate. Voltage versus time to discharge for a capacitor. Money earned from investments over time. Income tax and sales commissions. Nonlinear equations represent situations that, when graphed, appear as curved lines. These formulas have variables that are multiplied by themselves, or are raised to a power. Examples of terms like this are: x 2 1 x The figure at right is a graph of the nonlinear equation: y x For instance, when the variable x is 3, then: y is x 2 11 Y f X Copyright 2000, SAI Interactive, Inc.

97 Nonlinear Functions Using Nonlinear Formulas to Solve Problems In this example, a nonlinear formula can be used to solve a problem. If a car is traveling at 85 kilometers per hour, about how many meters will the car require to stop after the driver steps on the brake? The distance required to stop can be estimated from: 110 d v 2 (where d is the distance in meters and v is the velocity or speed in kph.) 1) First, read the problem carefully. What is the problem asking? What distance will the car travel before stopping? 2) What are the facts? The nonlinear equation to find the distance is given as shown. 3) Set up and solve the problem. Substitute 85 for v in the equation and solve for d : 110 d 110 d d v 7, , meters The stopping distance formula in this example is a nonlinear function because the speed, v, is squared. This means that it is multiplied by itself, v2 v x v. You can see that this is a nonlinear equation by generating a list of distances for various speeds as shown below. Then plot the points on a graph like that shown at right.
