In the equation 5t = 25, t is simply a variable that you are solving for. You can replace "t" with a variable you are more comfortable with, such as "x", leaving you with 5x = 25. The equation means: 5 times what equals 25? To get this, you would divide both sides of the equation by 5, leaving it as (5t)/5 = 25/5. The 5 on in the denominator and numerator on the left side of the equation would cancel out, leaving you with t = 25/5, which you can simplify to t = 5.
