Single Step Equation Worksheets

What Are Single Step Algebra Equations? Algebraic questions are an area of mathematics that advances at every level. During the initial stage, you learn about solving simple arithmetic operations by using constant, coefficients and variables. Moreover, as you move ahead, you tend to get problems that are complex and require several stages of calculations. Thus, this is where a single step algebra equation works; since it helps us to solve equations rather quickly so that you can focus on advanced calculations. Let us consider an example:x - 9 = 5. Now, in this scenario, it will take only one step to solve it. All you have to do is put the constants on one side and the variable on the other. In the present case, you can just add 9 on both sides with which you can get the answer. x - 9 + 9 = 5 + 9. Now, - 9 and + 9 will get canceled on the right-hand side, while you can add 5 and 9. You get the value of x of 14.

  • Basic Lesson

    Demonstrates the skill of balancing the left and right side of an equation. Also, introduces expressions. A value, such that, when you replace the variable with it, it makes the equation true. Left side = Right side Simplifying each side using the distributive rules, eliminating parentheses, and combining like terms. For the equation 6x + 4 = 16, isolate the variable term on the left and numeric terms on right side.

  • Intermediate Lesson

    Explains how to work with a multiple version of the same variable. Introduces two-step equations. We walk you though how to solve: g – 4 = 11-2g. Transferring -4 from left side and adding it on right side. Similarly transferring -2g from left side and adding it to g solving for the value for g, we get, g + 2g = 11 + 4, g = 15/3, g = 5.
