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
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
Sorry Ryan D: Can you confirm my method and answer though
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?
Yup. Is that one of your answer choices?
