This week's problem comes from the equation category.

How would you solve $$4(2+2(3-t))=8$$?

Let's begin!

$4(2+2(3-t))=8$

 1 Divide both sides by $$4$$.$2+2(3-t)=\frac{8}{4}$2 Simplify  $$\frac{8}{4}$$  to  $$2$$.$2+2(3-t)=2$3 Cancel $$2$$ on both sides.$2(3-t)=0$4 Divide both sides by $$2$$.$3-t=0$5 Subtract $$3$$ from both sides.$-t=-3$6 Multiply both sides by $$-1$$.$t=3$Donet=3
