These worksheets teach your students to solve linear equations by balancing equations and isolating variables.

#### How to Solve Linear Equations? Equations are a combination of constants, variables, arithmetic operations, and equals-to sign. There are several types of them that you might come across when learning algebraic concepts. The most basic form of equation is the linear equations. They are with 1 as the highest power of the variables. He general form of linear equation is given by; ax + b=0. Here, a and b and constants, x is the variable. Now that we know what the linear form is, we can talk about ways to solve them. So, how do you solve these guys? Start solving these equations by simplifying each side of the equals-to sign. Simplify any fractions, parenthesis. Once this is done, you need to bring the like-terms together, that is variables with variables on one side and constants with constants on the other side of the equals-to sign. Simplify the equation further by dividing or multiplying both sides of the equation with the final coefficient of the variable.

This section helps students to understand the concept of balancing linear equations. We will show it as a way that is very visual and makes it pretty easy to understand. When then also introduce students to fulfilling variables through simple algebra or basic plug and chug method. These worksheets are great for students who are new to the entire concept. These worksheets explain how to solve linear equations by balancing them and isolating variables. Some equations are presented in pictograph form and must be converted.

# Solving Linear Equations Worksheets

## Lesson

Which of the numbers 20, (-4), or 4 is the root of the equation x + 12 = 8? Rearrange the terms so that variable is on one side and the numbers are on the other side. Simplify to solve.

## Lesson and Practice

Write equation that matches the balance picture. Then find X. Here 'X' and a negative number are on one side of the balance; and a positive number is on the other side of the balance. There are 3 negative numbers and 6 positive numbers. Rearrange the terms so that all the numbers are on one side and X is on the other side.
