# Learn

An operation is a mathematical process. The most common operations are add, subtract, multiply and divide.

One-step problems require one operation to solve the problem. Two-step and multi-step maths problems require more than one operation to find an answer.

Often, you will have to use the answer to the first step using one operation to work out the rest of the problem.

Now, let's take a look at some multistep addition and subtraction word problems in the below slideshows.

The multi-step problem continues below.
