To solve:
2x - 11 - 8x = -5
We need to combine the like terms. We will combine 2x and 8x together.
Making...
2x - 11 - 8x = -5
Become...
-6x-11=-5
Now our new equation is..
-6x-11=-5
Now we will add 11 to both sides.
-6x-11=-5
+11 +11
------------
-6x=6
Now we can divide -6 on both sides..
So...
-6x/-6=6/-6
x=-1
