Hi;

Welcome to the forum. I am assuming you want to solve for t?

Expand it out.

Add 1 to both sides.

Add 7t to both sides.

Add 11 to both sides.

Divide both sides by -18.

Thank you very much. In your first step, of expanding it out, could you give me your step-by-step equations, with the distributive property as well? I would really appreciate it, as I have always had issues with the distributive property.
