Worksheet Overview

QUESTION 1 of 10

The equals sign (=) is used to show that two things are equal in value.

 

6 × 4 = 24 and 8 × 3 = 24

 

So we can say that

 

6 × 4 = 8 × 3  without saying that they both come to 24.

 

 

Example 1

True or false?

56 ÷ 7 = 10 - 3

 

Answer

Work out each side separately.

56 ÷ 7 = 8

10 - 3 = 7

 

They are not equal, so the statement was FALSE.

 

 

Example 2

True or false?

48 ÷ 4 = 4 × 3

 

Answer

Work out each side separately.

48 ÷ 4 = 12

4 × 3 = 12

 

They are equal, so the statement was TRUE.
