# One-step Algebra Equations with Addition and Subtraction

## Grade 6 Math Worksheets

In math, an equation means an expression with an **equal (“=”) sign**.

When we solve an equation we try to find the value of the variable. The expression/value on the left is equal to that on the right.

We follow a method where we separate the variable on one side of the equation using **Opposite Operations**.

**How do you solve an equation?**

#### Balance Method to Solve Equations

Add or subtract the same number from both sides to keep the equation in balance.

Solve: *x* + 8 = 12

*Example 1*.

+ 3 = 8

* x* + 3 = 8

-3 = -3

———————-

** x = 5**

———————-

*Example 2.* Solve *x* + 9 = -12

*Example 3*.**Lily has d watermelons. If she adds 25 to them, it will become 40. Find the value of d.**

**Equation is** *d* + 25 = 40

-25 = -25

————–

* d* = 15

————–

*Example** 4*.**Monica has $ x. After shopping for $155 on a sofa, she has only $25. What is the value of x?**

**Equation is ***x* – 155 = 25

+155 = +155

——————–

** x = $180**

*Example 5*.**Greg has x no. of books in his office shelf. There are 30 times more books in one of the shelves in the public library. If it’s equal to 4500, how many books does Greg have?**

**Equation** is 30*.b *= 4500

30*.b *÷ 30 = 4500 ÷ 30

* **b *= 150

**Check Point**

*x*+ 15 = 60

=

*x* = _____

*r*– 23 = 49

+ 23 = + 23. Find *r*.

- Max has
*b*number of cars at his taxi service. If he rents out 20, he is left with 25. Find*b*.
