Word Problems:Extra Facts Mixed Operation Word Problems
These worksheets include ,ixed addition, subtraction, multiplication and division word problems with extra unused facts in the problem descriptions.
All Operations Word Problems with Extra Information
The worksheets in this section combine the skills necessary to solve all four types of problems covered previously (addition word problems, subtraction word problems, multiplication word problems and division word problems) and they require students to determine which operation is appropriate for solving the described problem.
Additionally, the problems on these worksheets include information unnecessary for calculating the answer. Students will need to understand exactly which facts are pertinent to the question being asked, and know when they can discard a specific fact given in the problem description. This prevents students from simply determining what operation is needed to solve a problem given based on a keyword showing up because some of the information isn't important to finding the correct answer.
