Two Step Problems Worksheets

How to Solve Two-step Operation Problems - Not all mathematical problems have a single operation with them. At an early age, children are given simpler problems with only one mathematical operation to perform. These simple problems are necessary for developing the foundation for solving complex problems. Once children have a firm grip on solving a single-operation problem, they progress to solving multiple operations. The very next step to the single-operation problem is the two-step operation problem. These problems involve two operations and are solved following the rules of PEMDAS. According to this rule, we first solve for the parentheses followed by exponents. Next, we solve for multiplication and division in left to right order. Lastly, we solve for the addition and subtraction in left to right order. Example Problems: James had 12 chocolates; he then gives one to his friend John. One of his friends gave three of his chocolates to James. How many chocolates James have in total? The number of chocolates James has is equal to 12. He gives one to John. 12 -1 = 11, James receives three more chocolates from another friend. 11 + 3 = 14. The total number of chocolates James has is equal to 14.

Birthdays Rock!

Start with the number of your birth month. Multiply by 4. Add 13. Multiply by 100. Divide by 4. Subtract 200. Add the day of the month you were born. Multiply by 2. Subtract 40. Multiply by 50. Add to it the last 2 digits of the year you were born. Subtract 10,500.
