color(purple)(t = 8 / 7

#### Explanation:

$\text{Given : 16 = 12 plus 2 times t}$

$16 = \left(12 + 2\right) \cdot t$

$14 t = 16$

$t = {\cancel{16}}^{\textcolor{red}{8}} / {\cancel{14}}^{\textcolor{red}{7}}$

color(purple)(t = 8 / 7

$4 \left(3 t + 4\right) = 0$

#### Explanation:

(12 + 2)t = 16 ?

$\left(14\right) t = 16$

$14 t - 16 = 0$

$4 \left(3 t + 4\right) = 0$
