Hello Kassandra,

The following is the break down to the solution of your problem...

English: create two inequalities

Math:

t - 45 < 76 and t - 45 > -76

English: Solve each inequality separately

Math:

t - 45 < 76 (add 45 to both sides)

t - 45 + 45 < 76 + 45

t < 121

t - 45 > -76 (add 45 to both sides)

t - 45 + 45 > -76 + 45

t > -31

English: Write Answer

**-31 < t < 121**
