Work Step by Step

We start with the given equation: $6-(3t+4)=t$ We apply the distributive property to simplify the left side: $6-3t-4=t$ We add $3t$ to both sides of the equation and combine like terms: $$6-3t+3t-4=t+3t$$$$2=4t$$ We divide by $4$ on each side of the equation: $$\frac{2}{4}=\frac{4t}{4}$$$$\frac{1}{2}=t$$
