# How do you solve -36= - 32t?

Mar 26, 2017

$t = \frac{9}{8}$

#### Explanation:

We want the value of t so we have to divide both sides by $- 32$ so that $t$ stands alone

(-36)/(-32 = $\frac{\cancel{- 32 t}}{\cancel{- 32}}$

$t = \frac{36}{32}$

Dividing the numerator and denominator by 4, we get

$t = \frac{9}{8}$

Or $t = \frac{36}{32} = \frac{4 \cdot 9}{4 \cdot 8} = \frac{\cancel{4} \cdot 9}{\cancel{4} \cdot 8}$

$\therefore t = \frac{9}{8}$
