# If 5t - 3 = 3t - 5, then t = ?

A. 1

B. - 1

C. 2

D. – 2

Answer :

5t - 3 = 3t - 5 .... (1)

By transposition of -3 on RHS we get,

5t = 3t - 5 + 3

5t = 3t - 2

By transposition of 3t on LHS we get,

5t - 3t = - 2

⇒ 2t = - 2

⇒ t = - 1**Check:**

Put the value of t in (1),

LHS

5(-1) - 3 = -5 -3

= -8

RHS

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

= -3 - 5

= -8

As LHS =RHS

**The value t=-1 is correct.**
