Name ______________________________ Represent and Solve Multi-Step Problems Home Room __________________________ Use reasoning and key words to write and solve an equation for each problem, using a variable for the unknown. Date _______________________________ 1. Last week, Mary picked 4 baskets of 8 tomatoes from her garden. This week, she picked 3 baskets of 13 tomatoes. How many more tomatoes, t, does Mary pick this week than last week? A. (4 + 8) (3 + 13) = t Solve and check your equation here: B. (4 8) + (3 13) = t C. (3 13) + (4 8) = t D. (3 13) - (4 8) = t 2. The 5 members of the Wyler family paid $112 for admission to a water park. What was the price of, p, of each ticket? Solve and check your equation here: A. p = 5 + 112 B. p = 5 - 112 C. p = 5 112 D. p = 5 ÷ 112 3. Tom and his sister earned money by doing yard work. He collected all the money after their jobs. Tom gave his sister $54 and he kept $54. There was $42 left, which they gave to their family. How much money, m, did Tom collect for all their yard work? A. m = 54 2 + 42 B. m = 54 + 54 + 42 C. m = 54 - 54 + 42 D. m = 54 + 54 - 42 Solve and check your equation here: 4. The math club is selling pencil cases to raise money for a field trip. The field trip costs $508, of which they already have $76. If pencil cases, p, are $2 each, how many do they need to sell to raise enough money? A. (508 - 76) ÷ 2 = m Solve and check your equation here: B. (508 + 76) ÷ 2 = m C. (508 - 76) 2 = m D. (508 + 76) 2 = m 5. Katie’s horse eats 3 bales of hay each week. Find the number of weeks, w, that 36 bales of hay will feed her horse. Write an equation for this problem: w = ______________________________________________ 6. Darlene saved $300 that she earned by working in the school cafeteria. She spent $175 to buy textbooks and then paid $45 of her cell phone bill. How much money, m, does Darlene have left?
