# How do you solve  -18 = 6t?

Jun 23, 2018

Divide each side of the equation by $\textcolor{red}{6}$ to solve for $t$:

$- \frac{18}{\textcolor{red}{6}} = \frac{6 t}{\textcolor{red}{6}}$

$- 3 = \frac{\textcolor{red}{\cancel{\textcolor{b l a c k}{6}}} t}{\cancel{\textcolor{red}{6}}}$

$- 3 = t$

$t = - 3$
