    or to do it algebraically isolate the variable to one side and whatever you do to one side of an equation also do to the other to maintain the balance

    just for reference and later, whenever the variable has a coefficient greater than one divide by the coefficient to get the variable

    The temperature at noon was –6.5⁰C. The temperature rose 3.5⁰C from noon to 1 p.m. The temperature decreased t degrees centigrade from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. The temperature at 2 p.m. was –12⁰C. Which equation can be used to solve for t? A. –6.5 – 3.5 – t = –12 B. –6.5 + 3.5 + t = –12 C. –6.5 + 3.5 – t = –12 D. –6.5 – 3.5 + t = –12
