Equations with Brackets

9 worksheets containing linear equations where brackets need to be multiplied out as the first step. The sheets get progressively harder for extra practice or revision. The unknown appears on both sides of the equations. For the first worksheets the answers are all positive whole numbers but later equations have negative or fractional solutions.

Students are asked to check their answers for the first worksheets by putting the solution into both sides of the original equation to make sure it works out the same.

The answers and working out are included.

GCSE from 2017 references A17, A4, A3, A2, A1, N3, N2
