## What is the 2 step rule in math?

A two-step equation is an algebraic equation that takes you two steps to solve. You’ve solved the equation when you get the variable by itself, with no numbers in front of it, on one side of the equal sign.

## What is an example of a 2 step word problem?

A two-step problem is a word problem that requires two operations to solve it, for example: I buy a magazine costing 83p and a pencil costing 45p. I pay with a voucher that gives me 20p off the things I am buying.

### What is a two step problem?

### What is a 2-step problem in maths?

What are two-step word problems? Two-step word problems are problems in which two separate calculations (usually different operations) are required to reach the answer. By different operations we mean addition, subtraction, multiplication or division.

**How can you tell if a problem needs two steps to solve?**

While many of these problems have only one step, a two-step word problem requires you to solve two different equations before coming to the answer. The two-step word problem might have two different operations (like multiplication and addition) or two of the same operation (like subtraction and subtraction).

**What is two-step addition?**

A 2-step addition and subtraction problem is a maths question in which pupils will need to solve 2 equations to find the correct answer. For example, 700 – (113 + 276). Here, pupils will need to firstly add together 113 + 276, and then subtract that answer (389) from 700.

#### How to solve 2 Step equations step by step?

– Adding +3 to the left side of the equation, -2x -3, will give you (-2x -3) + 3, or -2x on the left side. – Adding +3 to the right side of the equation, 4x -15, will give you (4x – 15) +3, or 4x -12. – Therefore, (-2x – 3) +3 = (4x – 15) +3 = -2x = 4x – 12 – The new equation should read -2x = 4x -12

#### How do you solve two step equations?

– Add or subtract to isolate the variable term. – Multiply or divide to solve for the variable. – Check your solutions.

**What is the second step in solving the equation?**

The second step involves getting rid of the number closest to the variable x which is -3. Since -3 is multiplying the variable x, its opposite operation is to divide by -3. After dividing both sides by -3, we have solved the linear equation. Quick reminder, -3 divided by -3 is equal to +1.

Eliminate addition and subtraction first by adding or subtracting on both sides.
