5(3  3t) = 30
15  15t = 30
 15t = 15
t =  1. 
first distribute the 5 and the 3 because the parenthesis mean to multiply
5x3= 13
Then u have to distribute the 5 and the 3t because u must multiply everything in the parenthisis
5x3t= 15t
Now your equation is
1515t=30
you have to get the t by itself so u can solve for t. In order to
do that u have to subtract 15 from both sides.
1515=0 3015=15
now your equation is 15t=15
After this you have to divde both sides by 15 because you want to isolate the value
15
=1t also known as t and
15
15
= 1
15
There fore t=1Source(s):
To Check just plug the value back in for t.
5(33t)=30
1515t=30
1515(1)=30
15+15=30
30=30
U just have to plug in 1 into t after u have distributed the properties 
t= 1

Distribute on the let side.
1515t= 30
15t= 15
t= 1.
