# Lesson 18:  Assorted Word Problems

These word problems require different operations such as addition, multiplication, subtraction, and division.  In each one, it's up to you to figure out which operation to use.  The answers are explained in the video.  Make sure that you can solve each problem very easily, and that you fully understand what you are doing.

Don't forget to watch the embedded video clip for this lesson at the bottom of the page.  Please be sure to read the embedded video information and disclaimer.
