 Equations/91270: I have to solve the equation: 12 = t- 6...may I please have some help 1 solutions Answer 66247 by THANApHD(104)   on 2007-08-02 19:11:52 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!12 = t-6 12+6 = t-6+6 (add 6 on both sides) 18= t t= 18
 Equations/91269: I have to solve this equation : p + 9 = 2 May I please have some help?1 solutions Answer 66245 by THANApHD(104)   on 2007-08-02 19:10:32 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! p+9 = 2 u hav to solve for "p". So u got to hav "p" on one side of equal sign and the other side with the numbers our only obstacle here is 9, which shares the space with "p". So eliminate it. p+9-9 = 2-9 (subtract 9 from both sides) p = -7 tada.... u got the answer
