# Equations with Parenthesis

These worksheets require students to perform multiple steps to solve equations with parenthesis. Use your knowledge that you learned from solving one step equations to help solve these multi-step equations with parenthesis.

## Left Side Equations

### Mixed Equations

Hello class! Today, we’re going to be practicing basic equations with parentheses using some helpful worksheets from Teaching Squared. These worksheets are designed to help you get comfortable with using parentheses in equations and to improve your overall understanding of basic math operations. You’ll find a range of exercises on these sheets, from simple addition and subtraction problems to more complex equations involving multiple operations and multiple sets of parentheses. To get started, I’d like everyone to take a look at the first worksheet. You’ll notice that each problem has parentheses around some of the numbers or operations. Your job is to use the order of operations to simplify each equation and find the correct answer. Remember, the order of operations is a set of rules that tell us which operations to perform first in a given equation. The order is:
1. Parentheses
2. Exponents
3. Multiplication and Division (performed left to right)
4. Addition and Subtraction (performed left to right)
So, for example, if you see an equation like (5 + 3) x 2, you would first simplify the expression inside the parentheses (5 + 3 = 8) and then multiply the result by 2 (8 x 2 = 16). Take your time with each problem and don’t be afraid to ask for help if you get stuck. Remember, practice makes perfect, and these worksheets are a great way to build your confidence and mastery of basic equations with parentheses.
