Apr 28, 2018

$\frac{2 t}{12}$, Which simplifies to $\frac{t}{6}$

#### Explanation:

We write a quotient as $\frac{a}{b}$

So, we write the expression

"the quotient of twice a number t and 12"

as:

$\frac{\text{twice a number t}}{12}$

And we write the expression:

"twice a number t"

as

$2 t$

Thus the complete mathematical expression is:

$\frac{2 t}{12}$

Which simplifies to:

$\frac{t}{6}$
