    i nned like this . 8=3(3x+8)−x . 8=(3)(3x)+(3)(8)+−x(Distribute) . 8=9x+24+−x . 8=(9x+−x)+(24)(Combine Like Terms) . 8=8x+24 . 8=8x+24 . . . 8x+24=8 . Subtract 24 from both sides. . 8x+24−24=8−24 . 8x=−16 . divide 8 from both sides . 8/8=1 . so it cancels out and we are left with x . -16/8=-2 . x=-2
