    t = 4.5

    you got t=9 because you forgot to divide the 9 by 2 in the end like so:

    5 - (t+3) = -1 + t - 6

    5 - t - 3 = -7 + t

    5 - 3 + 7 = t + t

    9 = 2t

    9/2 = 2t/2

    4.5 = t

    I have no idea why this is in the agriculture section O_o

    5-(t+3)=-1+1t-6

    5 - t - 3 = -1 + t - 6

    2 - t = -7 + t

    2 = -7 +2t

    2t = 9

    t = 9/2 or 4.5

    To check, you plug 4.5 back in for t to check if both sides come out the same and they both equal -2.5 which means your t is correct.

    Well the actual problem would be. 5-1(t+3)=-1+1t-6 because theres an automatic understood one between the minus(or negative sign) and the parenthesis. To get the answer you'd have to do -1 times t and times positive 3 in order to get 5-1t-3=1+1t-6. Then you'll combine your alike terms in order to get 2-1t=-5+1t. From there you'll add 5 to both sides because it's a negative and you have to do the opposite of the actual sign. When you add your 5 to both sides you should get 7-1t=1t. From there you should and your -1t to both sides and that'll equal 7=2t. Divide 2 into 2t and the 7. Your answer should be 3 1/2 or 3.5.

    this is what I got buddy,

    5+1+6=(t+3)+1t

    12=t+3+t

    12-3=t+t

    9=2t

    9/2=2t/2

    4.5=t
