Evaluating Algebraic expressions with variables word problems

Grade 6 Math Worksheets

We can have a good understanding of evaluating expressions with variables with the help of following examples:

Example: The price Regina pays to visit the vet’s clinic is calculated according to the formula 20 + 50n. Here n is the number of times she visits him in a year. This time it was 2. What was the cost of his visit?

Equation here says:  20 + 50n

= 20 + (50.n)

= 20 + (50 × 2)

= 20 + 100

= $120 (Answer)

The expression 10g, tells the number of miles a car can travel using g liters of gasoline.

How far can this car travel on 10\frac{1}{2}  litres of gasoline?

Solution: 10g is the expression

= 10. 10\frac{1}{2}

= 10 × \frac{21}{2}

= 5 × 21

= 105 miles (Answer)
