# In the equation #3*(5*t + 2) = 36#, what does t equal?

##### 1 Answer

#### Explanation:

To solve for

#(color(red)(cancel(color(black)(3)))(5* t + 2))/color(red)(cancel(color(black)(3))) = 36/3#

The

#5 * t + 2 = 12#

#5t + 2 = 12#

Then we subtract 2 from each side.

#5t + color(red)(cancel(color(black)(2))) - color(red)(cancel(color(black)(2))) = 12 - 2#

#5t=10#

Then, isolate

#(color(red)(cancel(color(black)(5)))t)/color(red)(cancel(color(black)(5))) = 10/5#

#t = 2#
