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.
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.
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.
