6 = 2(x + 8) - 5x

2) Rearrange so all terms with an x are on one side
3) combine like terms, and solve.

6=2x+16-5x
6=-3x+16
6-16=-3x
-10=-3x
-10/-3=x

10/3 is correct.
what you need to do is simplify it.
how many 3s fit into 10? three, right? with 1 left.
So your simplified one is \[{10 \over 3}=>3{1\over 3}\]
