(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Hi- this is actually part of my physics homework, but all I need help with deals strictly with algebra.

This is my equation:

(0.97)(1 + Beta gas (-Ti)) = (1 + Beta steel (-Ti))

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

How do I solve for Ti? To me it seems like they cancel out, but from what I can remember, they don't and I can solve for it. I think it has to do with distributing before I start to solve, but I'm having issues. Im sorry I don't have more of an attempt, but I've tried to work it out on paper and they just cancel out.

Thanks so much.
