# Second Grade Math Worksheets and the aMAZEing Math Maze

005B

If you are here for information on Second Grade Math Worksheets, you'll find that information towards the bottom of the web-page. If you are here because you are working your way through the aMAZEing Math Maze. Then you must have missed question 5 twice. No worries, I'm about to explain how to work it.

## Q5b Bob's used car.

O'k, in this one Bob is trying to buy a car for $2000. Right away we know that he will need at least $2000 to purchase this car. So, we need ≥ 2000 at the end of this equation. Only answers a and c fit that criteria. Bob starts out with $500. It doesn't matter if we list the $500 and add the $100 per week to it, or add the $100 a week and then put in the $500 - both the same equation. In our case answer a had us starting with 500 and adding 100 per week to it. We don't know how many weeks, so we are using x for the number of weeks.

Bob is buying a car that cost $2000. He has $500 and plans to pay $100 a week until the car is paid for. Which would be the best formula.

**a) 500 + 100x ****≥ 2000**

**b) 500 + 100x ≤ 2000**

**c) 100x - 500 ≥ 2000**

**d) 100x + 500 ****≤**** 2000**

So, at this point you should try again. What the heck! Give it another shot.

## Second Grade Math Worksheets

Here's the thing. I promised information on second grade math worksheets - and I'm about to deliver just that. Let me preface this by saying that I know very little about this site other than the fact that they are a free resource of worksheets for lower level mathematics (and higher level mathematics. They aren't paying me for this endorsement. The site wants you to pay $19.95 if you want to get rid of the advertisements. And there are a lot of advertisements. The site is called **Math-Aids.com**.

At present, because I have so much that I would like to add to this site - I figure why re-invent the wheel. Give them a try and let me know what you think. Please let me know if you have any trouble with them at all. I love to hear from you - any help you can provide is always appreciated.
