Answer:

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:

#2t-3t=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#
