Free equation worksheets

With this worksheet generator, you can make customizable worksheets for linear equations (first-degree equations). These worksheets are especially meant for pre-algebra and algebra 1 courses (grades 6-9).

You can choose from SEVEN basic types of equations, ranging from simple to complex, explained below (such as one-step 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.

Please use the quick links below to generate some common types of equation worksheets.

One-step equations, whole numbers, with no negative numbers involved
One-step equations, whole numbers, the root may be a negative number
One-step equations; involves negative integers

Two-step equations
Variable on both sides and includes parenthesis

Challenges; includes rational expressions, such as (x - 5)/6, within the equations

Choose the types of equations generated for the worksheet. Choose AT LEAST one type.

Type 1: one-step equations (the simplest possible, such as x + 6 = 19 or 6x = 17 or x/7 = 18)
      nonnegative solutions only

Type 2: other one-step equations (such as 4 = 8 − x)
      nonnegative solutions only

Type 3: one-step 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: two-step 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, multi-step (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 1-4 using only integers. Books 5-7 introduce rational numbers and expressions. Books 8-10 extend coverage to the real number system.
