Multi-Step Equations: Solving for a Variable

Common Core Grade Level: 
Packet includes: 
20 practice problems and an answer key.

This packet helps students practice how to solve equations where they have to solve for different (specified) variables.  These equations help students practice combining like terms and performing operations in order to isolate a particular variable (while keeping the equation in balance).

Each page starts with easier problems that get more difficult as students work through the packet. After doing all 20 problems, students should be more comfortable doing these problems and have a clear understanding of how to solve them. 

Sample Problem(s): 

Solve for each variable.  

Simple: $x+y=-5$

Advanced:  $2x-\dfrac{3y}{z}= -18 $


Practice problems require knowledge of how to add, subtract, multiply, and divide integers.
