can someone help me figure this out last 3 lines i added after she graded it but not sure what i did wrong here
Solve and check. Label any contradictions or identities
3(t+2)+t=2(3+2t)
(3t+6+t=6+4t)
4t+6=4t+6
4t+66=4t+66
4t/4=4t/4
t=t
this problem is an identity
was told it was incorrect what did i do wrong here as my lovely teacher didnt bother explaining
