This worksheet (and key) is designed for students to practice those dreaded word problems that are solved with linear systems of equations. It has 6 unique word problems to solve including one mixture problem that is different from all of the examples in my Mixture Problem Mini-lesson”. The directions instruct the students to assign the variables (because my students often forget this step), set up the system of equations, and solve the system to answer the question. There are 2 pages with 3 problems each and I usually assign one page for homework and use one as a quiz.

Solve systems of linear equations exactly and approximately (e.g., with graphs), focusing on pairs of linear equations in two variables.
Solve real-world and mathematical problems leading to two linear equations in two variables. For example, given coordinates for two pairs of points, determine whether the line through the first pair of points intersects the line through the second pair.
