Your equation is 2.5=3t. The order of operations states that multiplication is the first and only operations occurring to the variable. In order to solve or "undo" the equation, perform the order of operations in the opposite order and using inverse operations.
That's wonderful Navi. Thank you for your help. Since the equation is 2.5=3t, and the operation affecting t is multiplication, I will use the inverse operation of division by 3 on both sides. 2.5/3=3t/3 This gives me a total time of 0.83 hours or approximately 50 minutes.
Approximately 50 minutes later...
Wow! Navi was right. I got here just when I expected. I will have to remember the help that she provided and generalize this information for future use.
