Write Equations in One Variable

Mario picked plums off a tree in the yard. He gave 18 plums to a neighbor and had 34 left. Which equation, when solved, will tell how many plums Mario picked? 18 - p = 34 p ÷ 18 = 34 p - 18 = 34 p - 18 = 34 A toy company is going to use 6 boxes to ship some toys across the country. The company needs to ship 24 toys. Which equation, when solved, will tell how many toys the company should put in each box? 6 x t = 24 t x 24 = 6 t - 6 = 24 t ÷ 6 = 24 Jenna put some staples into an empty stapler. After Jenna used 12 staples to make paper chains, there were 69 staples left in the stapler. Which equation, when solved, will tell how many staples Jenna put into the stapler? s + 12 = 69 s - 12 = 69 12 - 69 = s s ÷ 12 = 69 Shane and Camille had 82 books. They divided them into equal piles. Each pile had 2 books. Which equation, when solved, will show how many piles of books there were. 82 ÷ p = 2 82 x p = 2 41 x 2 = p 82 - p = 2 LSU needed to transport 28 fans to its football game from the stadium parking lot. The university rented a bunch of vans and put 4 fans in each van. Which equation, when solved, will tell the number of vans that the university rented? 28 ÷ v = 4 28 - v = 4 v ÷ 28 = 4 4 ÷ 28 = v Elise has 48 blue blocks. When she mixes them with her red blocks, there are 66 block in all. Which equation, when solved, will show how many red blocks Elise has? r + 66 = 48 48 + 66 = r 48 + r = 18 48 + r = 66 Meredith took some almonds from a bowl. She ate 17 of them and had 16 almonds left. Which equation, when solved, will tell how many almonds Meredith took from the bowl? a x 17 = 6 a - 17 = 16 16 - a = 17 a - 17 = 17 - 16 There are 65 boys in the school choir. The choir has 91 members in all. Which equation, when solved, will show how many girls are in the school choir? g x 65 = 91 65 - g = 91 65 + g = 91 g - 65 = 91 Desmond runs 6 miles every day. Which equation, when solved, will tell how many days it will take Desmond to run 54 miles? 6 x d = 54 d x 54 = 6 d + 54 = 6 d - 54 = 6 |
