# Solving Equations with Variables on Both Sides Worksheets

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 SidesÂ 1â€“ 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 + 2x = x + 56″

Solving Equations with Variables on Both SidesÂ 2â€“ This 12 problem worksheet includes equations that focus primarily on subtraction. Â If students isolate the variable on the left side of the equations, then they will avoid having to use negative numbers. Â Examples are shown to help guide students through the process. Â All of the answers are positive integers and the equations are similar to ”Â 8x â€“ 88 = 2x – 34″

Solving Equations with Variables on Both SidesÂ 3â€“ This 12 problem worksheet has equations that feature a mixture of addition and subtraction. Â You will encounter some negative integers as you “undo” these equations. Â Some of the answers will be negative as well, but I haven’t thrown in any decimals yet. Â Here’s an example of a typical problem: Â  “5x + 8 = 4x - 4″
