$t = 6$

#### Explanation:

Question:

−9t+18=4t−60

Answer:

Move the $t$s to one side

18=4t−60+9t

Move the like numerals to one side (opposite side to which the $t$ is on)

$60 + 18 = 4 t + 9 t$

Add like terms

$78 = 13 t$

To get $t$ on its own, divide both sides by $13$ (what you do on one side must be done on the other)

$\frac{78}{13} = \frac{13 t}{13}$

$\frac{78}{13} = t$

Solve the division

$\frac{78}{13} = 6$

Therefore,

$6 = t$
