Evaluate the expression for

y = 2 and = 3

y + z = ?

y + z = ?

2 + 3 = 5

100

12 +  a =    17

a = ?

a = 5

12 + 5 = 17

Define 'variable'

variable is a letter used as a placeholder in a math problem

variable takes the place of a mystery amount in a math problem

100

14  -  12  =    a

a = ?

a = 2

because 14 - 12 = 2

100
a = 25     b  =   100     c =   12

a + b + c =   d

Solve for d

d = 137

because 25 + 100  + 12 = 137

200

a = 7     and  b =  3

a + b = ?

a + b = ?     if a = 7 and b = 3

7 + 3 = 10

200

2 + b = 28

b = ?

2 + 26 = 28

b = 26

200

If      b + 3 = 21,  what is the value of b?

b = 18

because 18 + 3 = 21

200

25 -  b =  25

b = ?

b = 0

because 25 - 0  = 25

200

12p = 48

solve for p

p = 4

because 12(4) = 28

300

d = 12     and    e  =   14

d + e =  ?

12 + 14 = 26

300

a +  45   =   49

a = ?

4 + 45 = 49

a = 4

If James bought x amount of oranges and 12 apples, with 15 pieces of fruit all together, how many oranges did he buy?

x = 3

because 15 - 12 = 3

and 12 + 3 = 15

300

x - 100 = 75

x = ?

x = 175

because 175 - 100 = 75

300

y = 38x        if   x = 2

y = ?

y = 76

because 38(2) = 76

400

x = 17      y = 20

z = x + y

17 + 20  =  37

z = 37

400

b + 3 + 3 = 12

b = ?

6 + 3 + 3 = 12

b = 6

400

In the equation:

a + 3 = 23,  what is the value of a?

a = 20 because 20 + 3 = 23

and 23 - 3 = 20

400

127 - c =  2

c = ?

c = 125

because 127 - 125  = 2

400

12a  +   2a   +  7b = c        if     a = 2   and b = 3

c = ?

c = 49

because  12(2) = 24, 2(2) = 4, 7(3) = 21.....

24 + 4 + 21 = 49

500

a = 2       b = 12     c = 9

a + b + c =  ?

a + b + c =  ?

2 + 12 + 9 = 23

500

x + 3 + 12 =  20

x = ?

5 + 3 + 12 = 20

x = 5

v -  w  = y       if    v = 128    and w  =  125

y = ?

y = 3

because 128 - 125 = 3

500
2w +  19x + 20y = z         if  w = 8,      x = 2,     y= 0

z = ?

z = 54

because 2(8) = 16,  19(2) = 38 ,  20(0) = 0

16 +  38 = 54
