Write One-Step Equations (Word Problems) Worksheet

8 problems

The algebraic equations that can be solved exactly within one step are known as one-step equations. The one-step equations can be solved using any one of the arithmetic operations i.e division, multiplication, subtraction and addition. For solving the one-step equation, we apply the inverse of the fundamental operation. For example, 3x = 9. This is a one-step equation. Here, x = 3.
