 Question 632115: how to solve:7t-4(2t+3t)4/2=Answer by blacksaibot(4)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Assuming you wrote the problem correctly... it will be the same as: (7t-4) * (2t+3t) * (4/2) (4/2) is easily rewritten as 2 Do what you can within the parenthesis first. (2t + 3t) = 5t (7t-4) * (5t) * (4/2) Multiply the first expression (7t-4) * (5t), worry about 2 at the end (7t * 5t) + (-4 * 5t) = (35t^2 - 20t) So now we have: (35t^2 - 20t) * 2 = 70t^2 - 40t Since you never wrote a number after the equal sign, you cannot really solve for t in this situation. Traditionally, you would have complete the square but again, there is nothing else to solve for.
