Year 6 | Missing Number Problems (Algebra) Worksheets

In these Year 6 worksheets on missing number problems in algebra, children are tasked with determining the value of specific shapes representing missing numbers, as seen in questions like “What is the value of 3 circles = 18?” or “19 – square = 8?” Following this, learners solve a word problem related to missing numbers represented by a shape. Subsequently, pupils calculate the values of X and Y from a set of equations. Later, your class encounters a statement about the number of pieces of fruit two children eat during a month, featuring missing numbers. Your class must then choose and circle the correct formula from a set of multiple-choice answers. Finally, children compose a formula to illustrate a statement about two girls and the number of colouring pens they each own compared to one another.

This Year 6 missing number problems (algebra) worksheet will challenge and stretch your learners’ mathematical minds as they engage with missing number problems, formulae, and equations. By requiring pupils to calculate missing side lengths and provide corresponding working, the worksheets develop problem-solving skills, encouraging pupils to use logical reasoning and mathematical strategies to arrive at solutions.
