Computational Word Problems

What are computational word problems?

Many standardized tests like the HSPT, ISEE, ACT, and SAT will ask you to perform basic arithmetic computations with word problems. You will not see any variables in the questions, just words and numbers.

This guide will show you how to translate the words into an equation and then how to solve the equation.
