Solve One-Step Equations (Multiplying And Dividing With Fractions) Worksheet

8 problems

A one-step equation is a mathematical equation that only requires one operation (such as addition, subtraction, multiplication, or division) to solve. One-step equations that involve multiplying or dividing are equations where one side of the equation has a coefficient that is a fraction or a decimal. 


For example, 2x = 8 is a one-step equation that can be solved by dividing both sides by 2. x = 4 is the solution. When solving one-step equations that involve multiplying or dividing, it is important to remember to perform the same operation on both sides of the equation. This will ensure that the equation remains balanced and that the solution is correct.

Teaching Solve one-step equations (multiplying and dividing)  Easily


  1. Begin by introducing students to simple one-step equations given in these worksheets that involve multiplying or dividing, and gradually increase the complexity of the equations as students become more comfortable with the process.
  2. Emphasize the importance of the equation being balanced: Make sure students understand that the equation must remain balanced, and that the same operation must be applied to both sides in order to obtain the correct solution.
  3. Provide students with plenty of opportunities to practice solving one-step equations that involve multiplying or dividing through worksheets. This will help them to become more comfortable with the process and to develop their problem-solving skills.
  4. Give student...
