    \[\frac{1}{3(2x-8)}=4\] What do you suggest from here?

    \[\frac{ 1 }{ 3(2x-8) }=4\] Use distributive property to evaluate your denominator

    @hba Complicating it would be using the Taylor series for \(x\). I apologize for replying when she was talking to you; I misread the post.

    @sylinan \[\frac{ 1 }{ 3 }(2x-8)=4\] Multiply both sides by 3.

    \[3 \times\frac { 1 }{ 3 }(2x-8)=4 \times 3\]

    Now see this \[\ \cancel 3 \times \frac{ 1 }{\ \cancel 3 }(2x-8)=4 \times 3\]
