- 7.EE.A.1Apply properties of operations as strategies to add, subtract, factor, and expand linear expressions with rational coefficients
- 7.EE.A.2Understand 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 âincrease by 5%â is the same as âmultiply by 1.05.â
