A set of 4 tires is 25% off the regular price when purchased as a set. The sale price for the set (all 4 tires together) is $249.95. What expression can be used to represent the regular price of the set? Identify each term, the constant term, and the factors and coefficients of the terms that contain variables.
1. Translate the verbal expression into an algebraic expression. 2. Identify each term in the algebraic expression. 3. Identify any factors of the non-constant term(s). 4. Identify any coefficients of the non-constant term(s). 5. Identify any constant terms. This applet is provided by Walch Education as supplemental material for their mathematics programs.
