Answer:

#t = -14#

Explanation:

#-5 = t - 9#

To solve for the variable #t#, we have to make #t# alone, so let's move everything else to the other side of the equation.

Add #color(red)9# to both sides of the equation:
#-5 quadcolor(red)(-quad9) = t - 9 quadcolor(red)(-quad9)#

#-14 = t#

Flip it so that #t# is on the left hand side of the equation:
#t = -14#

Hope this helps!
