Some examples of basic word problems include:

1. Addition and subtraction: "There are 8 apples in a basket. John takes 3 apples. How many apples are left in the basket?" (8-3=5 apples)
2. Multiplication and division: "There are 24 pencils in a box. Each pencil case holds 6 pencils. How many pencil cases are needed to hold all the pencils?" (24/6=4 pencil cases)
3. Measurement: "A room is 12 feet long and 8 feet wide. What is the area of the room in square feet?" (12*8 = 96 sq ft)
4. Money: "A book costs \$20. If you have \$100, how much money will you have left after buying the book?" (\$100-\$20 = \$80)
5. Time: "If a train leaves at 8:00 AM and travels 60 miles per hour, what time will it arrive at its destination 120 miles away?" (120/60 = 2 hours, 8:00 + 2:00 = 10:00 AM)
6. Algebraic equations: "x + 3 = 8, what is the value of x?" (x = 5)
