Three Step Problems Worksheets
How to Solve Three Step Operation Problems  We have discussed onestep and twostep problems. A onestep problem has any one mathematical operation to solve. The twostep problem has any two mathematical operations to solve for. Threesteps problem work similar to the onestep and twostep problems but with an addition of one more step. Note that all these problems have to be solved according to the PEMDAS rule. Threestep operation problems have an addition of another operation to them. They are carried out in the same way as the onestep and twostep problems. The threestep problem follows the same rule of PEMDAS, which is parentheses and exponents are solved first. Following parentheses and exponents, the rest of the operations are solved. Multiplication is given priority over division, and addition and subtraction are solved next. For example, if you are given a problem, (4 + 5) x 12. You will start solving this problem by solving the parenthesis first. Within the parenthesis, you will resolve the problem for addition first. After solving for addition, you will move to solve multiplication. Once you have the sum, you will multiply it with the outside number and find the final result.

Basic Lesson
Demonstrates the rule set to follow when performing arithmetic operations. Practice problems are provided. A set of rules for arithmetic operations are devised to perform calculations involving more than one arithmetic operation. Rule 1: First perform all multiplication and division, working from left to right. Rule 2: Lastly, perform all additions and subtractions, working from left to right.

You Should Have Tried It...
Pick a number between 1 9. Double it. Add 54. Multiply by 50. If you have already had your birthday this year, add 1758, if not, add 1757.6. Subtract the year you were born. You should have a 3digit number. The first digit is your number; the last two are your age.
