Gustrina Gustrina, Kusnandi Kusnandi


This study aims to determine students’ mathematical prblem solving abilities in material system of linear and variable equation (SPLDV). This research was conducted in the odd semester 2018/2019 school year in Padang. This study uses a qualitative research design with the subject of class eight SMPN 3 Padang.The subject of this study were 32 students. The research subjects were given SPLDV) problem solving ability test accompanied by interview. Data were analyzed using data reduction,data presentation, and conclusions. Based on the results of the study ,it can be concluded that at (a) Mistakes of students in understanding problem that students still can not change the SPLDV story problem into mathematical form (b) Student mistakes in this aspect is they are still not able to find a right way to answer the question. (c) Students’ mistakes in carrying out the plan according to their steps , namely students are still not through in working on each step of the strategy used (d) Students mistakes in reviewing the result obtained,most students did not domit and only immediately solved the problem.
