To get more practice in equation, we brought you this problem of the week:

How would you solve $$3-4(3-4t)=23$$?

Check out the solution below!

$3-4(3-4t)=23$

 1 Subtract $$3$$ from both sides.$-4(3-4t)=23-3$2 Simplify  $$23-3$$  to  $$20$$.$-4(3-4t)=20$3 Divide both sides by $$-4$$.$3-4t=-\frac{20}{4}$4 Simplify  $$\frac{20}{4}$$  to  $$5$$.$3-4t=-5$5 Subtract $$3$$ from both sides.$-4t=-5-3$6 Simplify  $$-5-3$$  to  $$-8$$.$-4t=-8$7 Divide both sides by $$-4$$.$t=\frac{-8}{-4}$8 Two negatives make a positive.$t=\frac{8}{4}$9 Simplify  $$\frac{8}{4}$$  to  $$2$$.$t=2$Donet=2
