    -8x+24 = 30-10x. simplify to get 2x = 6. x= 3 hope this helps!

    If you go back to the original post... It is totally worked out... I am telling you your multiple choice answers are all incorrect. the answer is x = 3

    lets try: -8x+24=30-10x add 10x to both sides: 2x+24=30 -24 both sides: 2x=6 x=6/2 x=3 - answer
