t=-$\frac{17}{12}$
Subtract $\frac{5}{6}$ from both sides of the equation to isolate the variable. t+$\frac{5}{6}$=-$\frac{7}{12}$ t=-$\frac{7}{12}$-$\frac{5}{6}$ t=-$\frac{7}{12}$-$\frac{10}{12}$ t=-$\frac{17}{12}$ Check the answer. (-$\frac{17}{12}$)+$\frac{5}{6}$=-$\frac{7}{12}$ -$\frac{17}{12}$+$\frac{10}{12}$=-$\frac{7}{12}$ -$\frac{7}{12}$=-$\frac{7}{12}$
