x+8=4\left(x-2\right)
Multiply both sides of the equation by 2.
x+8=4x-8
Use the distributive property to multiply 4 by x-2.
x+8-4x=-8
Subtract 4x from both sides.
-3x+8=-8
Combine x and -4x to get -3x.
-3x=-8-8
Subtract 8 from both sides.
-3x=-16
Subtract 8 from -8 to get -16.
x=\frac{-16}{-3}
Divide both sides by -3.
x=\frac{16}{3}
Fraction \frac{-16}{-3}\approx 5.333333333 can be simplified to \frac{16}{3}\approx 5.333333333 by removing the negative sign from both the numerator and the denominator.
