(From Unit 6, Lesson 7.)Problem 7
Which expressions are solutions to the equation \(2.4y = 13.75\)? Select all that apply.
\(13.75  1.4\)
\(13.75 \boldcdot 2.4\)
\(13.75 \div 2.4\)
\(\frac{13.75}{2.4}\)
\(2.4 \div 13.75\)

(From Unit 6, Lesson 5.)Problem 8
Jada explains how she finds \(15 \boldcdot 23\):
“I know that ten 23s is 230, so five 23s will be half of 230, which is 115.
15 is 10 plus 5, so \(15 \boldcdot 23\) is 230 plus 115, which is 345.”

Do you agree with Jada? Explain.

Draw a 15 by 23 rectangle. Partition the rectangle into two rectangles and label them to show Jada’s reasoning.
