Answer

$t=4$

Work Step by Step

We are given that $\frac{3t}{4}-\frac{t}{2}=1$. First, we can multiply each term by 4. Since this is the least common denominator of each term, this will eliminate all fractions from the equation. $\frac{3t}{4}\times4-\frac{t}{2}\times4=1\times4$ $3t-2t=4$ Group like terms on the left side. $t=4$
