# How do you solve t/240=-9?

Jun 3, 2016

color(green)(t = -2160

#### Explanation:

When both sides of an equation are multiplied by the same number, the equation remains unchanged. So to get rid of the denominator on the left, let's multiply both sides with 240.

$\cancel{240} \cdot \left(\frac{t}{\cancel{240}}\right) = 240 \cdot - 9$

$t = - \left(240 \cdot 9\right)$

$t = - 2160$
