if the question is $\frac{15t}{5} = \frac{2t + 3}{6}$ cross multiply 90t = 10t + 15 then solve for t

I got 7.5t which isn't a choice

4. campbell_st

wow.... I can understand why 7.5t isn't a choice... 90t = 10t + 15 subtract 10t from both sides of the equation -10t -10t ------------------- 80t = 15 now solve for t

Well I was taught to do the constant first which would be subtracting 15 from each side

6. anonymous

And then divide the coefficient
