Tips for Solving One-Variable Equations and Inequalities Inequalities are discussed in the same manner as being equivalent. However, the properties of inequalities differ from those of equalities. There are different problems for inequalities consisting of a different number of variables. For starters, we will learn a few tips to solve inequalities with one variable with the help of number lines. Now, to discuss inequalities, we will assign an open circle for < and >, while we will assign a closed circle for ≤ and ≥. Now, let us consider two examples, and then we will write several steps for each of them. These worksheets and lessons help students learn how to work with a single variable in multiple locations of an expression or equation. This helps them learn to combine like terms quickly.

Homework Sheets

Another way to put these is combine like terms and solve for the variable.

  • Homework 1 - Simplify by combining like terms.
  • Homework 2 - Combine the a terms by adding their coefficients.
  • Homework 3 - Reduce each expression to its simplest form.

Practice Worksheets

I tried to present all the different question forms here.

  • Practice 1 - Solve for the variable.
  • Practice 2 - Simplify by combining like terms: -5s + 6 -4s
  • Practice 3 - Rewrite this expression in its simplest form: 9z + 3z

Math Skill Quizzes

All the quiz questions are a lot less wordy.

  • Quiz 1 - Write all expressions in their simplest form.
  • Quiz 2 - -4d + 6d + 3d
  • Quiz 3 - -2k + 4 – 8k
