8k+2 = 3(4k+t)

Expand expressions on each side

8k+2 = 12k + 3t

Group terms involving k on the left hand side

8k - 12k = 3t - 2

-4k = 3t - 2

Divide both sides by the coefficient of k, do not forget to insert parentheses on the right-hand side:

k = (3t-2)/-4

Simply and beautify

k = -(3t-2)/4

= (2-3t)/4

I leave #2 for your exercise, and post your answer for a check if you wish.
