## What is a multi-step problem in math?

Multi-step word problems are maths problems that require multiple calculations to solve them. They will usually will involve more than one operation and often more than one strand from the curriculum. For example a multi-step word problem on area and perimeter may also involve ratio and multiplication.

What is the first step in solving multi-step problem?

The first is to visualize the problem. Fully understand the problem so you know what you need to solve and what is going on in the problem. The second is to write equations from the problem that will help you answer the question from the problem. The third is to solve your equations.

### What is an example of a multi-step word problem?

Multistep Word Problem Examples Robert had 16 marbles. His brother gave him 3 bags of marbles. If each bag contained 5 marbles, how many marbles does Robert have now? Take your time to read the word problem and understand the situation.

What are the 3 stages of problem-solving?

A few months ago, I produced a video describing this the three stages of the problem-solving cycle: Understand, Strategize, and Implement. That is, we must first understand the problem, then we think of strategies that might help solve the problem, and finally we implement those strategies and see where they lead us.

## How do you solve multi step problems?

Eliminate the parenthesis on the left side of the equation by distributing the number outside the parenthesis into the binomial inside.

• This time,for convenience,we will keep the variable to the right side. To do that,we subtract 2x on both sides of the equation.
• Next,subtract 23 to both of the sides of the equation.
• What are the steps to solving multi step equations?

The solution of a multi-step equation is obtained by performing multiple steps.

• To solve a multi-step equation with variable on one side,combine the like terms,perform the operations,and solve for the variable.
• To solve an equation with variables on both sides,perform inverse operations to isolate the variable on one side and solve for its value.
• ### How do you solve equation with steps?

Add (or subtract) a number from both sides

• Multiply (or divide) both sides by a positive number
• Simplify a side
• How to solve multiâ€“step equations?

Remove parentheses by using the distributive property. Then combine like terms on each side.

• Add or subtract,as needed,to get all variable terms on one side and all constant terms on the other. Then combine like terms.
• Multiply or divide to solve for the variable.
• Check all possible solutions.
