b. How can you determine the cost to mail a 6-ounce letter?
c. Suppose you were asked to find the cost of mailing a letter that weighs
8 ounces. What steps would you take to solve the problem? FOUR-STEP PROBLEM-SOLVING PLAN It is often helpful to have an
organized plan to solve math problems. The following four steps can be used
to solve any math problem.
1. Explore • Read the problem quickly to gain a general understanding of it.
• Ask, “What facts do I know?” “What do I need to find out?”
• Ask, “Is there enough information to solve the problem?
Is there extra information?” 2. Plan •
•
•
• 3. Solve • Use your plan to solve the problem.
• If your plan does not work, revise it or make a new plan. Study Tip
Problem-Solving
Strategies
Here are a few strategies
you will use to solve
problems in this book.
• Look for a pattern.
• Solve a simpler
problem.
• Guess and check.
• Draw a diagram.
• Make a table or chart.
• Work backward.
• Make a list. 4. Examine •
•
•
• Reread the problem to identify relevant facts.
Determine how the facts relate to each other.
Make a plan to solve the problem.
Estimate the answer. Reread the problem.
Ask, “Is my answer reasonable and close to my estimate?”
Ask, “Does my answer make sense?”
If not, solve the problem another way. Concept Check
6 Chapter 1 The Tools of Algebra Which step involves estimating the answer? Example 1 Use the Four-Step Problem-Solving Plan
POSTAL SERVICE Refer to page 6. How much would it cost to mail a
9-ounce letter first class?
Explore The table shows the weight of a letter and the respective cost to
mail it first class. We need to find how much it will cost to mail
a 9-ounce letter. Plan Use the information in the table to solve the problem. Look for
a pattern in the costs. Extend the pattern to find the cost for a
9-ounce letter. Solve First, find the pattern.
Weight (oz)
Cost 1 2 3 4 5 $0.37 $0.60 $0.83 $1.06 $1.29 0.23 0.23 0.23 0.23 Each consecutive cost increases by $0.23. Next, extend the pattern.
Weight (oz)
Cost 5 6 7 8 9 $1.29 $1.52 $1.75 $1.98 $2.21 0.23 Study Tip
Reasonableness
Always check to be
sure your answer is
reasonable. If the answer
seems unreasonable,
solve the problem again. 0.23 0.23 0.23 It would cost $2.21 to mail a 9-ounce letter.
Examine It costs $0.37 for the first ounce and $0.23 for each additional
ounce. To mail a 9-ounce letter, it would cost $0.37 for the first
ounce and 8 $0.23 or $1.84 for the eight additional ounces.
Since $0.37 $1.84 $2.21, the answer is correct. A conjecture is an educated guess. When you make a conjecture based
on a pattern of examples or past events, you are using inductive reasoning.
In mathematics, you will use inductive reasoning to solve problems. Example 2 Use Inductive Reasoning

b. Draw the next figure in the pattern. In the pattern, the shaded square moves counterclockwise. Assuming the
pattern continues, the shaded square will be positioned at the bottom left
of the figure. Concept Check

By Ellen J. Horrow and Bob Laird, USA TODAY Explore You know the seating capacities of Comerica Park and Fenway
Park. You need to find how many more seats Comerica Park has
than Fenway Park. Plan The question uses the word about, so an exact answer is not
needed. We can solve the problem using estimation. Estimate the
amount of seats for each park. Then subtract. Solve Comerica Park: 40,000 → 40,000
Fenway Park: 33,871 → 34,000 Round to the nearest thousand. 40,000 34,000 6000 Subtract 34,000 from 40,000.
So, Comerica Park has about 6000 more seats than Fenway Park.
