$x=10$
Create a table with values of x and the corresponding value of the equation. Look for an 8 in the second column. $\underline{\ x\ }\ \ \ \underline{x+-2}$ $\ 1\ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ -1$ $\ 2\ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ 0$ $\ 3\ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ 1$ $\ 4\ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ 2$ $\ 5\ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ 3$ $\ 6\ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ 4$ $\ 7\ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ 5$ $\ 8\ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ 6$ $\ 9\ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ 7$ $10\ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ 8\longrightarrow$ solution is 10
