Work Step by Step

We start with the given equation: $15=-2(2t-1)$ We use the distributive property to expand the right side of the equation: $15=-4t+2$ We subtract $2$ on both sides of the equation: $15-2=-4t+2-2$ We combine like terms: $13=-4t$ We divide by $-4$ on both sides of the equation: $t=\frac{13}{-4}=-\frac{13}{4}$
