i think the answer is 1
is that correct?

algebra 
sophia,
if you add 2t + 1 =3 so 31=2 so 2 times what equals 2. not 1 because that would equal negative 2. its 1 because 2 times 1 is 2 plus 1 is three.

algebra 
Ms. Sue,
It's not 1.
2t + 1 = 3
Subtract 1 from each side of the equation:
2t = 2
Divide both sides of the equation by 2.
t = 1
Here's your original post with the answers.
2t+1=3
it one of the following, but which one?
A) 1
B) 1
C) 2
D) 2
please help Me!!!!!

subtract one from each side, then divide each side by 2.
