Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1first add 8 to both sides then divide both sides by 2 you will be left with the equation 3x5 = C where C is some number now split this up into 2 equations and solve them 3x  5 = C and 3x  5 = C

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.02(3x−5)−8=8 Add 8 to both sides. 2(3x−5)−8+8=8+8 2(3x−5)=16 Divide both sides by 2. 2(3x−5) / 2 = 16/2 3x−5=8 Solve Absolute Value. 3x−5=8 We know either 3x−5=8 or 3x−5=−8 3x−5=8 3x−5+5=8+5 3x=13 3x/3 = 13/3 (Divide both sides by 3) x= 13 / 3 3x−5=−8 3x−5+5=−8+5(Add 5 to both sides) 3x=−3 3x/3 = −3 / 3 (Divide both sides by 3) x=−1 So ur answer is x = 13/3 or x = 1
