Linear Equations (Word Problems) (F)

There are lots of situations in real life that can be modelled as a maths problem. For instance, maths can be used to help you decide whether pay-as-you-go or a monthly phone contract is better value. This GCSE Maths quiz will help you form a linear equation from a description, which can then be used to solve problems. You can also test your equation solving skills in Linear Equations (Numerical).

How do energy companies work out the charges for gas and electricity?
