# How do you solve #7- 3( 5t - 10) = 67#?

##### 1 Answer

Distribute the

#### Explanation:

You may be tempted to subtract

Distributing the

- Multiply
#-3# by#5t# to get#-15t# and multiply#-3# by#-10# to get positive#30#

#7-15t +30=67#

The

#7+30=37#

Now we're left with

#37-15t=67#

The next step would be to subtract

We're left with

#-15t= 30#

When a variable term is equal to a constant term, you always divide by the coefficient of the variable (number in front of variable).

The coefficient is

#t= -2#
