# Solving word problems with equations and inequalities (7.EE.B.4)

Solve word problems leading to equations of the form px + q = r and p(x + q) = r, where p, q, and r are specific rational numbers. Compare an algebraic solution to an arithmetic solution, identifying the sequence of the operations used in each approach. Understand that integers can be divided, provided that the divisor is not zero, and every quotient of integers (with non-zero divisor) is a rational number.
