Seyed is correct. There is also another way to to this.  Simply multiply the two numbers inside the parenthesis together. 
 
(1/2)(10t)=5t
 
 Now your equation reads 5t=50,000.
 
Now, solving algebraically, divide both sides by 5. 5t/5=50,000/5
 
Presto, your answer is exactly the same as what Seyed explained.
first multiply both sides of the equation by 2:
 
2(1/2)(10t) = 2*50,000 
 
now 10t = 100,000 
 
finally divide both sides of the equation by 10:         10t /10 = 100,000 /10
 
so: t= 10,000     (Answer choice D)
