Answer:

# (2t)/12 #, Which simplifies to # t/6 #

Explanation:

We write a quotient as #a/b#

So, we write the expression

"the quotient of twice a number t and 12"

as:

# "twice a number t" / 12 #

And we write the expression:

"twice a number t"

as

# 2t#

Thus the complete mathematical expression is:

# (2t)/12 #

Which simplifies to:

# t/6 #
