After reading the problem carefully, I noted that "Each office has 8 more departments than the number of offices." The number of offices is a given: 'x' represents that. To add 8 to the number of offices would then represent the total number of departments that each office has. Therefore the answer should be x+8. BTW, to help yourself visualize this stuff a little better, substitute easy values like 10 into variables like 'x'. It will look a lot clearer then
