$\bf{\text{Solution Outline:}}$ Substitute $t=8$ in the given equation, $13t=94.$ If the left side of the equal sign is equal to the right side of the equal sign, then $t=8$ is a solution. $\bf{\text{Solution Details:}}$ Substituting $t=8,$ the given equation is equivalent to \begin{array}{l}\require{cancel} 13t=94 \\\\ 13(8)=94 \\\\ 104=94 \text{ (FALSE)} .\end{array} Since the substitution above ended with a FALSE statement, then $t=8$ is $\text{ not a solution .}$
