@Chelsea98,
I would say that these are number problems as opposed to word.

Quite easy to work out, if you try.

@Lordyaswas,
Easier said than done, especially since I suck at math, particularly word problems or whatever the heck you want to call them so...

@Chelsea98,
These are elementary algebra problems (UK age 11)
In your previous questions, I gave you the hints I used to use when teaching. Were they any use?
