# Algebra Word Problem

The worksheet presents a mathematical word problem about a person named Wei, who has twice as many fiction books as non-fiction books and an additional 17 fiction books. Students are tasked with determining the total number of books Wei has. The problem requires the application of algebraic thinking to solve for the quantity of books in each category and then to sum them for the total.

The worksheet is aimed at teaching students how to set up and solve basic algebraic equations based on a real-world scenario. It introduces the concept of creating equations from a given set of relationshipsâ€”in this case, a ratio of fiction to non-fiction books, and a difference in their quantities. The exercise also reinforces arithmetic skills and the understanding of ratios and differences, critical components of problem-solving in mathematics.
