# How do you solve 2t-12-3t=60?

Jun 18, 2015

The answer is $t = - 72$

#### Explanation:

To solve such equations you have to put all the expressions with the unknown on one side and all numbers on the other:

$2 t - 3 t = 60 + 12$

Next you simplify both sides:

$- t = 72$

Finally you divide both sides by the coefficient on the left side of the unknown (in this case $- 1$) to get the answer:

$t = - 72$
