At the high school level, you can be most certain that a word problem is going to require you to form an equation or at least a basic expression along the process of solving it. When you first approach a high school word problem start by breaking down the anatomy of what is being asked of you. What type of solution are they look for here, then work backwards and see what values are involved to devise a solution? These values will be used to final the answer, you just need to determine which math operations are required to get there. In the greater majority of high school problems, it is all above creating an equation, from scratch, that describes the relationship of the variables and then plugging the given values in.
