Solving for t simply means that we want to get t by itself on one side. Lets keep it on the left side since it's already there. Then we would want to get rid of that 9

2. RyanL.

To get rid of that 9 we would subtract both sides by 9 Can you tell me what we then get?

1. Square it. t + 9^2 = 16^2 = t + 81 = 256 2. Take the 81 from both sides. t = 175 DONE! XD

4. CabbagePatch

Sorry Ryan D: Can you confirm my method and answer though

5. RyanL.

great now we have $\sqrt{t}=7$ now we have to square both sides $\sqrt{t}^2=7^2$ $t=7^2$ Can you tell me what that is?

6. RyanL.

Yup. Is that one of your answer choices?

7. RyanL.

Yes you are correct.
