Q 1 - Express the following sentence into a one-step equation.

(Hint: Use x as the unknown number)

Six times a number minus 3 equals 75

### Answer : B

### Explanation

**Step 1:**

Let the number be x.

**Step 2:**

Six times the number = 6x

Six times a number minus 3 = 6x – 3

**Step 3:**

Therefore, 'Six times a number minus 3 equals 75' translated into one-step equation is

6x – 3 = 75

Q 2 - Express the following sentence into a one-step equation.

(Hint: Use x as the unknown number)

Twelve less than 4 times a number is 52

### Answer : C

### Explanation

**Step 1:**

Let the number be x.

**Step 2:**

4 times the number is 4x.

Since 'less' means subtraction, twelve less than 4 times the number = 4x – 12

**Step 3:**

'Is' means equals to

Therefore,'Twelve less than 4 times a number is 52' translated into one-step equation is

4x – 12 = 52

Q 3 - Express the following sentence into a one-step equation.

(Hint: Use x as the unknown number)

The difference of thrice a number and 9 is 6

### Answer : D

### Explanation

**Step 1:**

Let the number be x.

**Step 2:**

Thrice the number = 3x

Since difference means subtraction, the difference of thrice a number and 9 = 3x – 9

**Step 3:**

'Is' means equals to

Therefore, 'The difference of thrice a number and 9 is 6' translated into one-step equation is

3x – 9 = 6

Q 4 - Express the following sentence into a one-step equation.

(Hint: Use x as the unknown number)

The sum of 24 and thrice a number is 57

### Answer : B

### Explanation

**Step 1:**

Let the number be x.

**Step 2:**

Thrice the number = 3x

Since sum means addition, the sum of 24 and thrice a number = 24 + 3x

**Step 3:**

Therefore, 'The sum of 24 and thrice a number is 57' translated into one-step equation is

24 + 3x = 57

Q 5 - Express the following sentence into a one-step equation.

(Hint: Use x as the unknown number)

Eleven times a number less 9 is 68

### Answer : A

### Explanation

**Step 1:**

Let the number be x.

**Step 2:**

Eleven times the number = 11x

'Less' means subtraction, so eleven times a number less 9 = 11x – 9

**Step 3:**

Therefore, 'Eleven times a number less 9 is 68' translated into one-step equation is

11x – 9 = 68

Q 6 - Express the following sentence into a one-step equation.

(Hint: Use x as the unknown number)

A number minus 8 is 15

### Answer : C

### Explanation

**Step 1:**

Let the number be x.

**Step 2:**

The number minus 8 = x – 8

**Step 3:**

'Is' means equal to

Therefore, 'A number minus 8 is 15' translated into one-step equation is

x – 8 = 15

Q 7 - Express the following sentence into a one-step equation.

(Hint: Use x as the unknown number)

5 more than 2 times a number is 17

### Answer : D

### Explanation

**Step 1:**

Let the number be x.

**Step 2:**

2 times the number = 2x

More means addition. So, 5 more than 2 times the number = 2x + 5

**Step 3:**

'Is' means equal to

Therefore, '5 more than 2 times a number is 17'

translated into one-step equation is

2x + 5 = 17

Q 8 - Express the following sentence into a one-step equation.

x(Hint: Use x as the unknown number)

A number increased by 9 is 13

### Answer : B

### Explanation
