This is a two page worksheet on solving equations. It has four parts.
Part 1: One-Step Equations
There are 5 equations in this section that can be solved using one opposite operation: Addition/Subtraction or Multiplication/Division.
Example: x + 4 = 5
Part 2: Two-Step Equations
There are 5 equations in this section that can be solved using two opposite operations.
Example: 4x + 1 = 41
Part 3: More Equations!
This section has 8 equations that will require opposite operations and a variety of other skills (for example, the distributive property, grouping like terms, squaring or taking the square root).
Part 4: Measurement Problems
In this section the student will need to use a basic measurement formula (area of a rectangle for example) to set up an equation to solve for a missing variable.
A VERY detailed solution key is included.
