Answer:

#t=1#

Explanation:

Use the distributive property to distribute the 3 on the left side of the equation and the 5 on the right side of the equation.

#24-9t=10+5t#

Using Algebra, let's subtract #5t# from both sides of the equation.

#24-14t=10#

Now, let's subtract 24 from both sides of the equation.

#-14t=-14#

Finally, let's divide both sides of the equation by #-14#.

#t=1#
