# Chapter 9 - Basic Algebra - 9.6 Solving Equations - 9.6 Exercises: 40

6, -12

#### Work Step by Step

a. We are given the equation $6t=0$. We would divide both sides by 6, because this would simplify the left side to $\frac{6t}{6}=t$. Doing so would allow us to isolate the variable on one side. b. We are given the equation $-60=-12w$. We would divide both sides by -12, because this would simplify the right side to $\frac{-12w}{-12}=w$. Doing so would allow us to isolate the variable on one side.
