You’re in luck! Â Whether you are a student looking to become an algebra expert, or an algebra teacher seeking to help your students master equations, these worksheets are for you. Â As you work through these **solving equations worksheets,Â **you’ll develop your ability to manipulate equations by using inverse operations and learn how to solve equations that have variables on both sides. Â If you have already conquered our one- and two-step equations, then these worksheets should provide an ample challenge. Â One could say that these problems are three-step equations.

As usual, ourÂ **free algebraÂ worksheetsÂ **always come with step-by-examples to help you on your way. Teachers, these worksheets serve as great tools for either independent classwork or homework. Â The worksheets can be downloaded as Word documents and PDFs. Â There is plenty of room on each worksheet to show all of your steps. Â Of course, answer keys are provided, but I always tell my students that equations are great because you can always check your own answers. Â You don’t even need your teacher to find out if you have an ‘A’!

**Solving Equations with Variables on Both Sides**Â **1**â€“ This 12 problem worksheet is designed to introduce you to solving equations that have variables on both sides. Â Only positive whole numbers are featured in the equations and all of the answers are positive as well. Â A few of the equations are two-step equations, but most are three-step equations similar to Â “20 + 2*x* = *x* + 56″
