 # Equal or Not Equal (2)

In this worksheet, students must solve problems involving addition, subtraction, multiplication and division and a combination of these, including understanding the meaning of the equals sign. Key stage:  KS 2

Curriculum topic:   Number: Multiplication and Division

Difficulty level:   ### 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 + 2

Work out each side separately.

56 ÷ 7 = 8

10 - 3 + 2 = 7 + 2 = 9

They are not equal, so the statement was FALSE.

Example 2

True or false?

100 ÷ 4 = 5 × 5

Work out each side separately.

100 ÷ 4 = 25

5 × 5 = 25

They are equal, so the statement was TRUE.
