#### Answer

$r=6$

#### Work Step by Step

Start with the given equation: $64=8(r+2)$ We use the distributive property to expand the right side of the equation: $64=8r+16$ We subtract $16$ from both sides of the equation: $64-16=8r$ We combine like terms: $48=8r$ We divide by $8$ on both sides of the equation: $r=\frac{48}{8}=6$
