# How do you solve  3(8 - 3t) = 5(2 + t) ?

May 24, 2017

$t = 1$

#### 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.

$24 - 9 t = 10 + 5 t$

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

$24 - 14 t = 10$

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

$- 14 t = - 14$

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

$t = 1$
