## Teaching Multi-Step Equations Easily

Things to keep in mind while solving multi-step equation practice worksheet:

- Firstly, in a parenthesis, apply the distributive property in the given equation.
- Secondly, combine all the like terms.
- Now, collect all the like terms on one side of the equation.
- Lastly, isolate the variable using inverse operations.

Here is an example of how to solve the multi-step equation problem.

Assume Sam is six years younger than Tomy. After 10 years, the sum of their ages is 36. Then how old is Tomy now?

Step 1: Let Tomy’s age be x years old. Then Sam’s age = x - 6 years. After 10 years, the sum of their ages is 36. i.e.,

(x + 10) + (x - 6 + 10) = 36

Step 2: Combine similar terms.

2x + 14 = 36

On removing 14 from both sides,

The result is that 2x = 12

Dividing both sides by 2,

Thus, Sam's age now is 6 years old.
