Mary is reviewing her algebra quiz. She has determined that one of her solutions is incorrect. Which one is it?

A. 2x + 5(x - 1) = 9, x = 2
B. p - 3(p - 5) = 10, p = 2.5
C. 4y + 3 y = 28, y = 4
D. 5w + 6w - 3w = 64, w = 8
E. t - 2t - 3t = 32, t = 8


E will result in a negative value. If you are willing to calculate,
8-16-24 results in -32. IMO E

E. t - 2t - 3t = 32, t = 8


E is incorrect.

t - 2t - 3t = 32

-4t = 32

t = -8

Answer: E
