# Solving Word Problems by Working Backwards: Summary

In the previous posts, I have shown to you a series on how to solve word problems by working backward. Although I recommend that you learn this method, it is also very important to learn algebraic methods and others since some problems are difficult to solve by working backward. Below are the posts in this series.

**How to Solve Word Problems by Working Backward Part 1** discusses solving number problems by working backward. Two examples are given.

**How to Solve Word Problems by Working Backward Part 2** discusses solving age problems by working backward. Two sample problems are solved in this post.

**How to Solve Word Problems by Working Backward Part 3** discusses more complicated number problems. Two sample problems are discussed in this post.

If you are interested to solve more word problems, please visit the **Word Problems** page. It contains word problems about number, age, motion, work, discount and many more.
