    ook so now why did you subtract 8 from both side instead of doing the parenthesis

    if u had done that, in the end u would have had to use syntthetic division or something else to solve the equation. it is not a bad idea, but it is harder

    if i were do do this i would find the difference of the number in parenthesis, then raise the result to the 8th power and then add it to 8
