# 6th Grade Algebra Homework Help

### Solved Examples

**Question 1:**Simplify 572 ÷ 2 $\times$ 4.9

**Solution:**

Given, 572 ÷ 2 $\times$ 4.9

Step 1:

572 ÷ 2 = 286

Step 2:

286 $\times$ 4.9 = 1401.4

$\Rightarrow$ 572 ÷ 2 $\times$ 4.9 = 1401.4

**Question 2:**Find the value of 'a'.

12p - 18a = 6p, for p = 1

**Solution:**

Given, 12p - 18a = 6p

Step 1:

Solve for a,

Subtract 12p from both sides

$\Rightarrow$ 12p - 18a -12p = 6p - 12p

$\Rightarrow$ -18a = - 6p

Divide each side by -18

$\Rightarrow$ a = $\frac{6}{18}$p = $\frac{1}{3}$p

Step 2:

Put p = 1

$\Rightarrow$ a = $\frac{1}{3}$ $\times$ 1

$\Rightarrow$ a = $\frac{1}{3}$

**Question 3:**Find the least common multiple of 12, 16 and 24.

**Solution:**

Prime Factors of 12 = 2 $\times$ 2 $\times$ 3

Prime Factors of 16 = 2 $\times$ 2 $\times$ 2 $\times$ 2

Prime Factors of 24 = 2 $\times$ 2 $\times$ 2 $\times$ 3

$\Rightarrow$ LCM(12, 16, 24) = 2 $\times$ 2 $\times$ 2 $\times$ 2 $\times$ 3 = 48

**Question 4:**A certain map uses a scale of 1 inch equals 35 miles. How many miles are represented by 15 inches on this map?

**Solution:**

Given

1 inch = 35 miles

$\Rightarrow$ 15 inches = 35 $\times$ 15

3 5

x 1 5

--------------

1 7 5

+ 3 5 x

--------------

5 2 5

--------------

Hence, 525 miles are represented by 15 inches on map.

**Free Math Worksheets for Grade 6**

This is a comprehensive collection of free printable math worksheets for sixth grade, organized by topics such as multiplication, division, exponents, place value, algebraic thinking, decimals, measurement units, ratio, percent, prime factorization, GCF, LCM, fractions, integers, and geometry. They are randomly generated, printable from your browser, and include the answer key. The worksheets support any grade 6 math program, but have been specifically designed to match Math Mammoth grade 6 curriculum.

The worksheets are randomly generated each time you click on the links below. You can also get a new, different one just by refreshing the page in your browser (press F5).

You can print them directly from your browser window, but first check how it looks like in the "Print Preview". If the worksheet does not fit the page, adjust the margins, header, and footer in the Page Setup settings of your browser. Another option is to adjust the "scale" to 95% or 90% in the Print Preview. Some browsers and printers have "Print to fit" option, which will automatically scale the worksheet to fit the printable area.

All worksheets come with an answer key placed on the 2nd page of the file.

In sixth grade, students will start the study of beginning algebra (order of operations, expressions, and equations). They learn about ratios & percent and start using integers. Students also review long division, factoring, fraction arithmetic, and decimal arithmetic.In geometry, the focus is on the area of triangles and polygons and the volume of rectangular prisms. Other topics include rounding, exponents, GCF, LCM, and measuring units. Please note that these free worksheets do not cover all 6th grade topics; most notably, they do not include problem solving.

**Key to Algebra Workbooks**

Key to Algebra offers a unique, proven way to introduce algebra to your students. New concepts are explained in simple language, and examples are easy to follow. Word problems relate algebra to familiar situations, helping students to understand abstract concepts. Students develop understanding by solving equations and inequalities intuitively before formal solutions are introduced. Students begin their study of algebra in Books 1-4 using only integers. Books 5-7 introduce rational numbers and expressions. Books 8-10 extend coverage to the real number system.
