## anonymous 4 years ago I'm having trouble solving this problem... -t/4=8??? Am I supposed to multiply it by the reciprocal on both sides??? If so, how do I multiply -t/4 by its reciprocal when there's only 1 number??? I'm so confused!!!

1. UnkleRhaukus

${-t \over 4}=8$multiply both sides of the equation by 4$\rightarrow{-t\over 4} \times 4 =8 \times 4$simplify $-t=32$ multiply/divide both sides by negative 1 $-t \times -1=32 \times -1$ simplify $t=-32$
