Thank you very much for your help and assistance with this matter. Dad of 5! 1. -4+46=7(-3t+6) 2. -4(3b+9)=24+3(2b-8)Answer by askmemath(368)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!1. -4+46=7(-3t+6) -4 +46 = +42 (Since 46 is the larger number) 7(-3t+6) In order to remove the brackets,multiply each term within the brackets with the term immediately outside the bracket Therefore you get -21t + 42 Subtracting 42 on both sides -21t = 0 which means t = 0 2. -4(3b+9)=24+3(2b-8) -12b -36 = 24 + 6b -24 -12b -36 = 6b Adding 12b on both sides 18b = -36 Dividing by 18 on both sides b = -2
