Q: -3(T-8)-(T+1)=9
A: -3(T-8)-(T+1)=9; (-3T + 24) - (T + 1) = 9; -4T + 23 = 9; -4T = 9 - 23; -4T = -14; T = -14/(-4); T = 7/2
Original conversation
User: -3(T-8)-(T+1)=9

Weegy: Mathematical operation normally follows a specific order which is called MDAS. MDAS stands for Multiplication, Division, Addition and Subtraction. [ Therefore usinf the given problem you need to solve -3 x 4, followed by your (3-9) ? -12, and followed by 2 plus the answer on (3 - 9) ? -3 x 4. Hence the answer is 4 ]

-3(T-8)-(T+1)=9;

(-3T + 24) - (T + 1) = 9;

-4T + 23 = 9;

-4T = 9 - 23;

-4T = -14;

T = -14/(-4);

T = 7/2
