### Problem 4

For each inequality, decide whether the solution is represented by \(x < 4.5\) or \(x > 4.5\).

- \(\text-24>\text-6(x-0.5)\)
- \(\text-8x + 6 > \text-30\)
- \(\text-2(x + 3.2) < \text-15.4\)

### Solution

### Problem 5

A runner ran \(\frac23\) of a 5 kilometer race in 21 minutes. They ran the entire race at a constant speed.

- How long did it take to run the entire race?
- How many minutes did it take to run 1 kilometer?

### Solution

### Problem 6

Jada, Elena, and Lin walked a total of 37 miles last week. Jada walked 4 more miles than Elena, and Lin walked 2 more miles than Jada. The diagram represents this situation:

Find the number of miles that they each walked. Explain or show your reasoning.

### Solution

### Problem 7

Select **all** the expressions that are equivalent to \(\text-36x+54y-90\).

\(\text-9(4x-6y-10)\)

\(\text-18(2x-3y+5)\)

\(\text-6(6x+9y-15)\)

\(18(\text-2x+3y-5)\)

\(\text-2(18x-27y+45)\)

\(2(\text-18x+54y-90)\)
