    first you should try to get both T's to the same side of the equation. so.. 17/8T - 2/T = 1/8

    then you need to get a common denominator. so if you multiply 2/T by (8/8) then you will get 16/8T

    When you have T's in the denominator -- first find the common denominator and multiply every term by that.

    Cancel the denominators into the numerators.
