Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@geny55 Michele_Laino explains it good in the first reply she made on this comment  you should probably be able to put it into your own words by now since people gave a lot of explanations  so try putting it into your own words :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so is this a good answer to put? 1. First thing to do is to find 3. 2. Then put the pencil on 0 and count 3 steps to the left. 3. Once you are at 3, move 5 more steps to the left (left because 5). 4. Then you are left at 8. ( 8 is the answer )
