### CBSE Class 7 Simple Equations Worksheets with answers

Q.1 Solve for the value of the unknown variable:

1. 3x – 5 = 7
2. 2y + 8 = 20
3. 4a – 10 = 26
4. 5b + 15 = 45
5. 2c – 7 = 11

1. x = 4
2. y = 6
3. a = 9
4. b = 6
5. c = 9

Q.2 Create equations based on the given statements:

1. Four times a number minus 3 is equal to 17. Write the equation.
2. The sum of twice a number and 5 is 11. Write the equation.
3. Seven less than three times a number is equal to 26. Write the equation.
4. If you add 9 to a number and then divide by 3, you get 7. Write the equation.
5. Ten times a number plus 8 is equal to 58. Write the equation.

1. 4x – 3 = 17
2. 2y + 5 = 11
3. 3z – 7 = 26
4. (x + 9) / 3 = 7
5. 10a + 8 = 58

Q.3 Solve the equations and check your solutions:

1. 2(x – 3) = 14
2. 3(2y + 5) = 27
3. 4(a + 2) = 40
4. 5(3b – 2) = 25
5. 6(c – 4) = 18

1. x = 10 (Check: 2(10 – 3) = 2(7) = 14)
2. y = 4 (Check: 3(2*4 + 5) = 3(13) = 39)
3. a = 8 (Check: 4(8 + 2) = 4(10) = 40)
4. b = 5 (Check: 5(3*5 – 2) = 5(15 – 2) = 5(13) = 65)
5. c = 10 (Check: 6(10 – 4) = 6(6) = 36)

Q.4 Solve the following equations.

1. 2x + 5 = 13
Solution: Subtract 5 from both sides: 2x = 8. Divide both sides by 2: x = 4.
2. 3y – 7 = 16
Solution: Add 7 to both sides: 3y = 23. Divide both sides by 3: y = 7.67 (rounded to two decimal places).
3. 4z + 9 = 25
Solution: Subtract 9 from both sides: 4z = 16. Divide both sides by 4: z = 4.
4. 5a – 3 = 22
Solution: Add 3 to both sides: 5a = 25. Divide both sides by 5: a = 5.
5. 6b + 2 = 32
Solution: Subtract 2 from both sides: 6b = 30. Divide both sides by 6: b = 5.

Q.5 Write the equation for the following word problems and solve.

1. The sum of a number and 8 is 20. Find the number.
Equation: x + 8 = 20
Solution: Subtract 8 from both sides: x = 12.
2. Three times a number decreased by 5 is equal to 22. Find the number.
Equation: 3x – 5 = 22
Solution: Add 5 to both sides: 3x = 27. Divide both sides by 3: x = 9.
3. The product of a number and 7 is 63. Find the number.
Equation: 7x = 63
Solution: Divide both sides by 7: x = 9.
4. Twice a number increased by 4 is equal to 18. Find the number.
Equation: 2x + 4 = 18
Solution: Subtract 4 from both sides: 2x = 14. Divide both sides by 2: x = 7.
5. Five less than a number multiplied by 6 is equal to 42. Find the number.
Equation: 6x – 5 = 42
Solution: Add 5 to both sides: 6x = 47. Divide both sides by 6: x = 7.83 (rounded to two decimal places).
