Subtract 6t from each side of the equation. Subtraction Property of Equality
\(8t+5-6t=6t+1-6t\)
Simplify
\(2t+5=1\)
Subtract 5 from each side of the equation. Subtraction Property of Equality
\(2t+5-5=1-5\)
Simplify
\(2t=-4\)
Divide each side of the equation by 2. Division Property of Equality
\(\frac{2}{2}*t=\frac{-4}{2}\)
Simplify
\(t=-2\)
Check solution
\(8(-2)+5=6(-2)+1\)
\(-16+5=-12+1\)
\(-11=-11\)
