First, subtract 2 from both sides, then divide both sides by 5. What do you find?
I have the same question as above: If 5t + 2=6, then t=?
Please be patient with me as I have been away from school for 12+ years, but I'm more than willing to give it a try.
Now, my answers I have here are:
A. 8 -----> this is not correct because according to my calculations, I get 42, which is not equal to 6.
B. 5/4
C. 4/5
D. -8 ------> this is not correct because I get -38, which is not equal to 6 either.
My problem is that I don't remember how to work fractions into this math question. Can I get some help please?
You said above to subtract two from both sides...so my equation now looks like this:
5t + 2=6 ....so subtract 2 and I get:
5t = 4 and then divide it by 5. So now I get...
t=4/5.
Oh, nevermind! I think I got it. Thank you!!
