This worksheet has four real world problems; it satisfies the requirement for common core 8.EE.8 and several other standards. Students should be able to define variables, write equations, and graph ordered pairs. The first problem is an one-step equation about paint coverage. The next three problems are two-step equations about decline in population, sport club membership and car payment. I created several different print styles. If you don’t want the pictures than print first two sheets back to back to save paper and ink. The modified sheet has the first one completed. This is allows remedial students to see answer format. It is well suited for the intermediate (middle) school students.
