5(t+1)+8=3(t-2)+6

5t+5+8=3t-6+6

5t+13=3t

2t=-13

t=-13/2

check59t+1)+8=3(t-2)+6

5(-13/2)+1+8=3(-13/2)-2)+6

-65/2+13=-39/2

13=-39/2+65/2

13=26/2

13=13

want to know if this right

**Reiny**, Wednesday, August 31, 2011 at 11:50pmyour solution is correct

in the check, most educators would expect you to work on each side independently and use

LS = .....

RS = .....

ending up with LS = RS

so you would have

LS = 5(-13/2)+1+8

= -65/2+5 + 8

= - 32.5 + 13

= -19.5

RS = 3(-13/2)-2)+6

= -39/2 -6 + 6

= -39/2

= - 19.5

= LS

so t = -13/2
