If I add 7 to a number I get 18. What is my number? My number is 11

Together 2 bags of sweets contain 40 sweets. How many sweets in each bag? Each bag contains 20 sweets

Ali will be 21 years old, in 8 years time. How old is Ali? Ali is 13 years old

Equations – Success if you can do these 3x = 6 x/4 = 2 x + 3 = 17 x – 4 = 13 3x + 4 = 25 4x – 3 = 17

© T Madas n + 5 = 12 n +5 12 –5 7 n = 7

If I add 7 to a number I get 18. What is my number? n = 18 n +7 18 –7 11 n = 11 My number is 11 + 7

Together 2 bags of sweets contain 40 sweets. How many sweets in each bag? 2b2b = 40 b x2x2 40 ÷2÷2 20 b = 20 Each bag contains 20 sweets

Ali will be 21 years old, in 8 years time. How old is Ali? a = 21 a +8+8 21 – 8 13 a = 13 Ali is 13 years old + 8 Age now

How to solve the x + 3 = 10 type of equation

You get rid of the + 3 by - 3 But you must subtract 3 from both sides x + 3 =10 x + 3 – 3 = 10 - 3 x = 7

For equations like x + 3 = 10 just subtract 3 from both sides x + 3 = 10 x = 10 - 3 x = 7 Like this

How to solve the x – 3 = 7 type of equation

You get rid of the – 3 by + 3 But you must to add 3 to both sides x – 3 = 7 x – 3 + 3 = 7 + 3 x = 10

For equations like x – 3 = 7 just add 3 to both sides x – 3 = 7 x – 3 + 3 = 7 + 3 x =10 Like this

How to solve the 5x = 20 type of equation

5 x = 20 means 5 X x = 20 5 x = 20 5 X x = 20

5 x = 20 means 5 X x = 20 So, you get rid of the 5 X by ÷ 5 5 x = 20 5 X x ÷ 5 = 20 ÷ 5

5 x = 20 means 5 X x = 20 So, you get rid of the 5 X by ÷ 5 5 x = 20 5 X x ÷ 5 = 20 ÷ 5 x = 4

5 x = 20 means 5 X x = 20 So, you get rid of the 5 X by ÷ 5 But you must divide both sides by 5 5 x = 20 5 X x ÷ 5 = 20 ÷ 5 x = 4

For equations like 5x = 20 just divide both sides by the number that multiplies the x. 5x = 20 x = 20 ÷ 5 x = 4 Like this

How to solve the x/3 = 4 type of equation

x /3 = 4 x ÷ 3 = 4 It means x ÷ 3 = 4

x /3 = 4 x ÷ 3 = 4 x ÷ 3 X 3 = 4 X 3 Get rid of ÷ 3 by using a X 3 It means x ÷ 3 = 4

x /3 = 4 x ÷ 3 = 4 x ÷ 3 X 3 = 4 X 3 x = 12 Get rid of ÷ 3 by using a X 3 It means x ÷ 3 = 4

x /3 = 4 x ÷ 3 = 4 x ÷ 3 X 3 = 4 X 3 x = 12 Get rid of ÷ 3 by using a X 3 You must X 3 on both sides It means x ÷ 3 = 4

For equations like x/3 = 4 just multiply both sides by the number that divides the x. x/3 = 4 x = 4 X 3 x =12 Like this

Remember, always do the same thing to both sides. Felix is checking that you do this properly. x/3 = 12 x ÷ 3 X 3 = 12 X 3 x =36

If I double my house number and then subtract 4, I get 18. What is my house number? 2n2n = 18– 4 n x2x2 18 +4 11 – 4 22 ÷2÷2 n = 11 I live at number 11

Cassie has 5 stamps. She bought another three books of stamps and now has 23 stamps. How many stamps in each book? 5 = 23 + 3b 3b + 5 = 23 b x3x3 23 –5–5 6 +5+5 18 ÷3÷3 b = 6 Each book contains 6 stamps
