    1/3 √2 = 1 / t - 2

    Multiply both sides of the equation by t - 2, so that t isn't in the denominator.

    1/3 √2 (t - 2) = 1

    ^there's no t - 2 on the right side of the equation because multiplying by t - 2 cancelled out the t - 2 in the denominator.

    Now, subtract 1/3 √2 from each side:

    t - 2 = 1 - 1/3 √2

    Finally, add 2 to each side so t is by itself, and then collect like terms on the left side of the equation:

    t = 1 + 2 - 1/3 √2

    t = 3 - 1/3 √2
