Marvellous Multi-Step Word Problems

Step 1 - Step 2 - Step 3

Multi-step word problems are when you have an equation that requires two or more steps to get to the answer. There are different ways to solve these word problems including using multiplication and division. An example of a Word problem is: A group of 9 children and 7 adults are going to the zoo. Child tickets cost £5, and adult tickets cost £7. How much will the zoo tickets cost in all? For this, you will need to use addition and multiplication.

In my’ opinion these problems are my favourite because if you understand them and know what to do, they are quite easy and quick to finish. You can also do multi-Step word problems with decimals to. For example ‘Amy and her brother eat a whole tub of ice cream. She eats 1/9 of the tub. How much do her brothers get each?’ If you got it correct it is 8/27. Thank you for taking the time to read my blog. DO you have any multi-step word problems you can challenge me to solve?!
