Ok First you Have To Distribute. When ever you have a number in front of a parentheses, you always distribute before solving. So 3 (2x+8)=0 You Distribute by MultiplYing 3 by 2x and 8 Which will give you 6x+24=0 Then You Subtract 24 from both sides of the equal sign Which will give you 6x=-24 Then You Just Divide By Putting a 6 Under Everything and So The 6 cancel out with its self and -24÷6 is -4 So you Will Be left with, which is your answer ×=-4
