Two Step Equation Word Problems Worksheet

Two-Step Equations are equations that can be solved exactly within two steps. It is a linear equation in one variable. While solving a two-step equation, we should perform the same operation on both sides of the equal sign. Two-Step Equations are written in the form of “ax+b+c = 0”. Here, a,b and c are real numbers. 
 

There are some basic things to keep in mind while solving a two-step equation word problem.

Teaching Two-Step Equation Word Problem Easily 

 

  • You should always remove the constant either by adding or subtracting the appropriate number. 


 

  • Then, remove the parentheses and combine the like terms to further simplify the equation. 


 

  • Always verify your solution in the end. 

     

Two-Step Equation = ax+b+c = 0

Where, a, b and c are real numbers. 


 

 

 

 

Here is an example to solve a question on a two-step equation word problem. Let’s take the example mentioned below to understand the two-step equation word problem. 


 

Q. You bought an eraser for 5 INR and four magazines. The total amount spent was 25 INR. How much did the magazine cost?


 

ATQ, 5 + 4x = 25. 

Where, 

X = cost of magazine. 


 

Step 1: Add or subtract the constant term. 


 

Here, 4x + 5 = 25

So, 4x = 25 - 5 = 20. 


 

On further simplification , 

4x = 20 

X = 20/4 = 5. 


 

Hence, the cost of each magazine is 5 INR.
