An “equation” in math is a specific formula used to find an answer. In a simplified equation, there are only two parts that are joined by the equal “=” sign. For example: X = Y. The letters “X” and “Y” are often referred to as “expressions.” The expression on both sides of the equal sign will have the same value.

1.

Y = 16 x 17

272

33

-1

273

16 x 17 = 272. There are no negative numbers to be found so Answer (c) is not correct. The correct answer is Answer (a), Y = 272

2.

X = 234 - 197

431

234 - 197 = 37 so X = 37. Answer (d) is correct

3.

Y = 10 + 78

-68

68

88

780

10 + 78 = 88. There are no negative numbers to be found so Answer (a) is not correct. The correct answer is Answer (c), Y = 88

4.

X = 15 + 57 - 18

90

54

837

15 + 57 = 72 - 18 = 54 so X = 54. Answer (b) is correct

5.

X = 7 x 9

63

16

-2

61

7 x 9 = 63. There are no negative numbers to be found so Answer (c) is not correct. The correct answer is Answer (a), X = 63

6.

X = 41 x 8

33

328

49

348

41 x 8 = 328 so X = 328. Answer (b) is correct

7.

Y = 12 x 12 - 36 + 11

191

97

119

98

12 x 12 = 144 - 36 = 108 + 11 = 119 so X = 119. Answer (c) is correct

8.

Y = 56 - 23

79

33

1288

-33

56 - 23 = 33. There are no negative numbers to be found so Answer (d) is not correct. The correct answer is Answer (b), Y = 33

9.

X = 14 + 3

42

11

17

16

14 + 3 = 17 so X = 17. Answer (c) is correct

10.

X = 28 + 7

36

196
