# Simplify and Solve the Linear Equation 3(T - 3) = 5(2t + 1) - CBSE Class 8 - Mathematics

ConceptReducing Equations to Simpler Form

#### Question

Simplify and solve the linear equation 3(t - 3) = 5(2t + 1)

#### Solution

3(t − 3) = 5(2t + 1)

⇒ 3t − 9 = 10t + 5 (Opening the brackets)

⇒ −9 − 5 = 10t − 3t

⇒ −14 = 7t

⇒ t = (-14)/7

=> t = - 2

Is there an error in this question or solution?
