# Simplify and solve the linear equations: 3(t - 3) = 5(2t + 1)

**Solution:**

We will be applying distributive property and then transpose variables to one side and constants to another side to form a linear equation.

3(t - 3) = 5(2t + 1)

⇒ 3t - 9 = 10t + 5 [Using distributive property]

⇒ 7t = -14

Hence,

t = -14/7

t = - 2
