17 ) Use variables to represent numbers, and write expressions when solving a real-world or mathematical problem; understand that a variable can represent an unknown number or, depending on the purpose at hand, any number in a specified set. [6-EE6]

[MA2019] (6) 18 :
18. Determine whether a value is a solution to an equation or inequality by using substitution to conclude whether a given value makes the equation or inequality true.
[MA2019] (6) 19 :
19. Write and solve an equation in the form of x+p=q or px=q for cases in which p, q, and x are all non-negative rational numbers to solve real-world and mathematical problems.

a. Interpret the solution of an equation in the context of the problem.
[MA2019] (6) 21 :
21. Identify, represent, and analyze two quantities that change in relationship to one another in real-world or mathematical situations.

a. Use tables, graphs, and equations to represent the relationship between independent and dependent variables.

Title: Grade 6 Mathematics Module 4, Topic H: Applications of Equations
URL: https://www.engageny.org/resource/grade-6-mathematics-module-4-topic-h-overview
Description:

In Module 4, Topic H, students use their prior knowledge from Module 1 to construct tables of independent and dependent values in order to analyze equations with two variables from real-life contexts. They represent equations by plotting the values from the table on a coordinate grid (5.G.A.1, 5.G.A.2, 6.RP.A.3a, 6.RP.A.3b, 6.EE.C.9). The module concludes with students referring to true and false number sentences in order to move from solving equations to writing inequalities that represent a constraint or condition in real-life or mathematical problems (6.EE.B.5, 6.EE.B.8). Students understand that inequalities have infinitely many solutions and represent those solutions on number line diagrams.
