# Common Core: 6th Grade Math : Use Variables to Represent Numbers and Write Expressions: CCSS.Math.Content.6.EE.B.6

## Example Questions

### Example Question #901 : Grade 6

Select the equation or inequality that matches the number sentence below.

is less than  minus

Explanation:

Our number sentence has the phrase "less than" which means we have an inequality.

" is less than" can be written as  because we replace the words "less than" with the less than symbol.

Next, we have " minus ". This can be written as  because minus means subtraction, so we replace the word "minus" with the subtraction symbol.

When we put these pieces together we have

### Example Question #451 : Expressions & Equations

Select the equation or inequality that matches the number sentence below.

is less than  plus

Explanation:

Our number sentence has the phrase "less than" which means we have an inequality.

" is less than" can be written as  because we replace the words "less than" with the less than symbol.

Next, we have " plus ". This can be written as  because plus means addition, so we replace the word "plus" with the addition symbol.

When we put these pieces together we have

### Example Question #12 : Use Variables To Represent Numbers And Write Expressions: Ccss.Math.Content.6.Ee.B.6

Select the equation or inequality that matches the number sentence below.

is greater than or equal to  plus

Explanation:

Our number sentence has the phrase "greater than or equal to" which means we have an inequality.

" is greater than or equal to" can be written as  because we replace the words "greater than or equal to" with the greater than or equal to symbol.

Next, we have " plus ". This can be written as  because plus means addition, so we replace the word "plus" with the addition symbol.

### Example Question #901 : Grade 6

Select the equation or inequality that matches the number sentence below.

is equal to  plus

Explanation:

Our number sentence has the phrase "equal" which means we have an equation.
