7th Grade MAT Targeted Standards Domain (EE) Expressions and Equations Cluster: Use properties of operations to generate equivalent expressions

MAT-07.EE.02 Understand that rewriting an expression in different forms in a problem context can shed light on the problem and how the quantities in it are related.

For example, a + 0.05a = 1.05a means that “increase by 5%” is the same as “multiply by 1.05.”
