Word problems with variables

Equations with variables

These worksheets formulate problems involving variables.  These are relatively simple word problems requiring addition,  subtraction, multiplication or division to solve; however, the problems are expressed in terms of a stated variable, and the student is asked to write an equation using that variable, before solving the problem. The intent is to familiarize students with the use of variables to represent unknowns.
