Please help I do not understand this question at all.Answer by jim_thompson5910(28595)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! Start with the given expression. Set the denominator equal to zero. Remember, dividing by 0 is undefined. So if we find values of "t" that make the denominator zero, then we must restrict those values. Add 7 to both sides Combine like terms on the right side Divide both sides by 3 to isolate t So this means that makes the denominator equal to zero. So we MUST make the restriction to avoid dividing by zero (since makes the denominator equal to zero).
