 # 2t-5=3(t-5)

## Enter Equation or Inequality

Solve the following equation
2t-5=3(t-5)

Solve for t
2t - 5 = 3(t - 5)

Simplify by removing parentheses
Simplify 3(t - 5):
Distribute the 3 to each term in (t-5)
3 * t = (3 * 1)t = 3t
3 * -5 = (3 * -5) = -15
Our Total expanded term is 3t-15

Our new term is
2t - 5 = 3t - 15

Simplify by removing parentheses
Our new term is
2t - 5 = 3t - 15

## Group variables

Group our variables 2t and 3t
subtract 3t from both sides
2t - 5 - 3t = 3t - 15 - 3t

-t - 5 = -15

## Group constants

Group our constants -5 and -15.
-t - 5 + 5 = -15 + 5

-t = -10

## Divide each side of the equation by -1

 -1t -1
 =
 -10 -1

t = 10

t = 10
