dont feel like an idiot, i think i can help u. FIRST, the idea is to get the t by itself. So u want mutiply, the 8 on the other side by -1. Thefore it will be left with (t-4)= -8. then just add the four over. Giving u t is equal to -4.

1/(t-4)=8 multiply both sides by t-4
1=8(t-4) disreibute 8
1=8t-32 add 32 to each side
33=8t divide both sides by 8
t=33/8=4 1/8=4.125

if the problem is supposed to be -1/(t-4)=8, then multiply each side by (t-4) to get -1=8t-32. Add 32 to each side and get 31=8t. t=31/8.

t = -1/12 (negative one-twelfth).
Here's how:
-1/t-4 = 8
add 4 to both sides, now you have
-1/t = 12
multiply both sides by t, now you have
-1 = 12t
divide both sides by 12, now you have
-1/12 = t

-1/-12-4=8
a negative divided by a negative equals a positive
t= 12

-1/(t-4)=8
Clear the fraction
-1=8(t-4)=8t-32
Solve fot t
8t=32-1=31
t=31/8
Isn't algebra fun!

- 1 = 8(t - 4)
-1 = 8t - 32
31 = 8t
t = 31/8
t = 3(7/8)

t = -4
-1/t-4=8
Multilply both sides by -1
t-4= -8
add 4 to both sides
t=-4
