Worksheets for linear equations
Find here an unlimited supply of printable worksheets for solving linear equations. You can customize the worksheets to include onestep, twostep, or multistep equations, variable on both sides, parenthesis, and more. The worksheets suit prealgebra and algebra 1 courses (grades 69).
You can choose from SEVEN basic types of equations, ranging from simple to complex, explained below (such as onestep equations, variable on both sides, or having to use the distributive property).
All of the worksheets come with an answer key; however, you need to click the link to the answer key immediately after generating the worksheet, because the answer key is only generated when you click on that link. Because of this, you cannot find the answer key for a specific worksheet later on, should you come looking for it.

Equation Worksheet Generator 
Choose the types of equations generated for the worksheet. Choose AT LEAST one type.
Type 1: onestep equations (the simplest possible, such as x + 6 = 19 or 6x = 17 or x/7 = 18) nonnegative solutions only Type 2: other onestep equations (such as 4 = 8 − x) nonnegative solutions only Type 3: onestep equations where you first need to simplify an expression on one side (such as 4x = 19 − 7 or 10x − 2x = 16) nonnegative solutions only Type 4: twostep equations (such as 4x − 5 = 19 or (2x) / 6 = 5) Type 5: includes parenthesis (such as 4(x + 5) = 50) Type 6: variable on both sides (such as 4x + 5 = 9 + 7x) Type 7: general, multistep (such as (3x)/2 = (4x − 5)/7)

Key to Algebra Workbooks
Key to Algebra offers a unique, proven way to introduce algebra to your students. New concepts are explained in simple language, and examples are easy to follow. Word problems relate algebra to familiar situations, helping students to understand abstract concepts. Students develop understanding by solving equations and inequalities intuitively before formal solutions are introduced. Students begin their study of algebra in Books 14 using only integers. Books 57 introduce rational numbers and expressions. Books 810 extend coverage to the real number system.
