7.EE.B.3

Solve multi?step real? life and mathematical problems posed with positive and negative rational numbers in any form (whole numbers, fractions, and decimals), using tools strategically. Apply properties of operations to calculate with numbers in any form; convert between forms as appropriate; and assess the reasonableness of answers using mental computation and estimation strategies.

7.EE.B.4

Use variables to represent quantities in a real? world or mathematical problem, and construct simple equations and inequalities to solve problems by reasoning about the quantities.
