One Step Equations


These are one step equations to find the variable of the problem.

Sample Problem

26 = 8 + v

v= -18

v= 18

v= 3.25

v= 34



26 = 8 + v

1. You’re solving for v so you have to isolate the variable, to do so you subtract the 8 on each side.

26 = 8 + v
-8 -8

2. Subtract.
18 = v

3. Check your answer by plugging v back into the equation and if it’s a true statement then you have the correct answer.

26 = 8 + 18

26 = 26
