How to use these solutions
The key to solving word problems is determining the unknown and identifying what the problem is asking you to do. Once you identify these, you can use the problem solving steps below to solve any word problem.
1. Read through the whole problem and make a list of what is known and unknown.
2. Write down any formulas that may be needed to solve the problem in case you need them later on.
3. Make a table with a column labeled number followed by a column labeled operation, a third labeled answer, and finally one labeled work where you will put your work from step four (this will help us check your work).
