CCSS.Math.Content.7.EE.A.1Apply properties of operations as strategies to add, subtract, factor, and expand linear expressions with rational coefficients.

There are times when fractions and decimals can make any problem look more complicated but with a little tinkering it you can make them all whole numbers.

Remember the idea is to make yourself comfortable in solving the problem. Now is the time to ask question, learn to problem solve and excel in all Math concepts.
