A. B. 3 C. D. –3

2. Loujoelou

What is A /C?

3. dietrich_harmon

2-/3

4. dietrich_harmon

2/3

5. Loujoelou

First we would distribute 2(x+8) and get 6=2x+16-5x. Now we will combine like terms and get 6=-3x+16. After this, we will subtract 16 on both sides and get -10=-3x. Once we divide both sides by -3, we get x=10/3. At least that's what I got.
