    Simplifying x + 8 + 5x = 32 + -2x Reorder the terms: 8 + x + 5x = 32 + -2x Combine like terms: x + 5x = 6x 8 + 6x = 32 + -2x Solving 8 + 6x = 32 + -2x Solving for variable 'x'. Move all terms containing x to the left, all other terms to the right. Add '2x' to each side of the equation. 8 + 6x + 2x = 32 + -2x + 2x Combine like terms: 6x + 2x = 8x 8 + 8x = 32 + -2x + 2x Combine like terms: -2x + 2x = 0 8 + 8x = 32 + 0 8 + 8x = 32 Add '-8' to each side of the equation. 8 + -8 + 8x = 32 + -8 Combine like terms: 8 + -8 = 0 0 + 8x = 32 + -8 8x = 32 + -8 Combine like terms: 32 + -8 = 24 8x = 24 Divide each side by '8'. x = 3 Simplifying x = 3 D

    Shift all x on one side:)

    x + 8 + 5x = 32 - 2x 6x+ 8 = 32 - 2x first, add the (x's) -8 -8 subtract 8 from each side 6x= 24 - 2x +2x +2x 8x = 24 divide 8/24 = x= 3
