What equation would find the solution to the following problem?
Abby has
run 2 miles a day for 5 days. Her goal is to run 25 miles a week. After 5 days how many miles
does Abby have left to run in order to meet her goal in the next 2 days?
a.  5 X 2 + m = 25  c.  7 x 5 + m = 25  b.  25 ÷ 2 + m = 5  d.  2 + 5 + m = 25 


2.

What equation would find the solution to the following story
problem?
Juan read his book all week long. On Monday he read 19 pages, on Tuesday he
read 24 pages, over the next few days he read 3 times as many pages then he did on Tuesday. If
he read a total of 115 pages how many pages did he read after Monday and Tuesday?
a.  115  24 x 19 = p  c.  19 + 24 + 3(p) = 115  b.  19 + 24 + 24= 115  d.  24  19 + p =
115 


3.

What equation would find the solution to this problem?
Cameron swam 6
laps one day. His goal is to swim 36 laps in 6 days, swimming an equal number of laps over the
next few days. How many more laps will Cameron need to swim each day so that he will have 36
laps?
a.  s + 6 + 36 = 6  c.  36  6 + 6 = s  b.  (36  6) ÷ 5 =
s  d.  6 + 6  s =
36

What equation would find the solution to this problem?
18 marbles in the
jar are green, 27 of them are yellow. If there are 69 total marbles in the jar how many of them
would be orange?
a.  69  27 + 18 = m  c.  18 x 27 x m = 69  b.  18 + 27 + m = 69  d.  18  m + 27 =
69

What equation would find the solution to this problem?
Eddie delivered a
total of 254 papers in 3 days. On Tuesday he delivered 89 papers, on Wednesday he delivered 97
papers. How many papers did he deliver on Thursday?
a.  254 ÷89+ 97 = p  c.  89 + 97 + p = 254  b.  89  97 + p = 254  d.  89 x 97 x p =
254 


6.

What equation would find the solution to this problem?
Ian bike rides 12
miles one day. His goal is to ride 126 miles in a week, riding an equal number of miles each
remaining day of the week. How many more miles a day does Ian need to ride?
a.  126 + 6 + m = 12  c.  7 + 12 + m = 126  b.  7 x 12 x m =
126  d.  6 x m + 12 =
126 


7.

What equation would find the solution to this problem?
Five apples in the
bucket are green, seven of them are red. If there are twenty apples in the bucket all together,
how many of them are yellow?
a.  5 x 7 x a = 20  c.  20 ÷ 5 + 7 = a  b.  5 + 7 + a = 20  d.  20  7 + a = 5 


8.

What equation would find the solution to this problem?
On vacation the
Jones family traveled for 3 days, for a total of 495 miles. The 1st day they traveled 194
miles, on the 2nd day the traveled 267 miles. How many miles did they travel on the 3rd
day?
a.  267 x m + 194 = 495  c.  267  194 + m = 495  b.  267 + 194 + m = 495  d.  495  267+ 194 =
m 


9.

What equation would find the solution to this problem?
The teacher grades
29 papers the first day, 36 papers the second day, and twice as many on the third day than the first
day. All together she graded 123 papers, how many papers did she grade on the third
day?
a.  123 ÷ p + 36 = 29  c.  29 x 36 + p = 123  b.  29 + 36 x p = 123  d.  29 + 36 + 2(p) =
123 


10.

Which following equation would represent the following story
problem?
There were 32 frogs in the pond. 8 of them had spots, 11 of them were
brown. How many of the frogs in the pond were green?
a.  8+ 11 + f = 32  c.  8 + 11  f = 32  b.  8 x 11 +f = 32  d.  8 + 11  f = 32
