Here are four multiple-step word problems that will require a combination of addition, subtraction, multiplication, or division. Two money questions are included. This file has an answer key.
Word problems (or story problems) allow kids to apply what they have learned in math class to real-world situations. Word problems build higher-order thinking, critical problem-solving, and reasoning skills.
Solve each of the multi-step word problems on this page. Problems contain basic numbers of 20 or less. Each problem can be solved without knowledge of multiplication or division.
