Work Step by Step

Subtract $\frac{2}{3}$ from both sides of the equation to isolate the variable. t+$\frac{2}{3}$=-$\frac{7}{6}$ t=-$\frac{7}{6}$-$\frac{2}{3}$ t=-$\frac{7}{6}$-$\frac{4}{6}$ t=-$\frac{11}{6}$ Check the answer. (-$\frac{11}{6}$)+$\frac{2}{3}$=-$\frac{7}{6}$ -$\frac{11}{6}$+$\frac{4}{6}$=-$\frac{7}{6}$ -$\frac{7}{6}$=-$\frac{7}{6}$
