# Checking Equation Solutions–Variables on Both Sides

With these worksheets, you will match equations with their correct solutions.  You will be able to practice plugging values into an equation while you utilize your order of operations skills.  If the chosen value makes the left side of the equation match the right side, voila, you have the correct solution!  There are even examples to guide you in case you get stuck.

The first two worksheets contain only positive, integer solutions.  The final two worksheets incorporate positive and negative integers, as well as fractions.  This is a great way to see what it means for a value to be a “solution” to an equation with variables on both sides.  Your students will also be able to hone their standardized test-taking skills. Enjoy!
