Translating Phrases into Algebraic Expressions Worksheets

The worksheets in this page provide practice to students on translating phrases into algebraic expressions like linear expressions, single & multiple variable expressions, equations and inequalities. This will help the students to translate real-life problems into algebraic expressions and find a solution in an easier way.

Linear Algebraic Expressions

Translate each phrase into a linear algebraic expression. Each expression is in the form of ax + b, where x is any variable; a and b are constants. Hard level is in the form of c(ax+b), c is a constant.
