    6 = 2(x + 8) - 5x 1) Expand brackets 2) Rearrange so all terms with an x are on one side 3) combine like terms, and solve.

    "Solve for" means you want to get that letter alone on one side of the equals sign, right?

    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 \[{10 \over 3}=>3{1\over 3}\]
