1. Tanisha

Step-by-step explanation:

10t – 4t + 3t = 8    (given)

= 10t – 4t + 3t  = 8

= 9t = 8

This is what Tanisha wrote (9t = 8)

Hope this helps, and please mark me brainliest if it does!

2. Tanisha wrote an equation that is the same as Mrs. McAlister’s equation.

9t = 8

Step-by-step explanation:

Mrs. McAlister wrote an equation on the board is:

10t-4t+3t=8

Now we simplify this

In order to simplify the left side, we combine like terms.

Here 10t, -4t, & 3t are like terms

So, 10t – 4t + 3t is equivalent to 9t

Thus,

9t = 8

This equation is written by the Tanisha.
