$n=-17$

#### Work Step by Step

Distributing the constants on both sides gives, $16n-40 = 18n-6$ Then we move all the variables to one side and constants to another, Add 6-16n to both sides, $16n-40+ 6-16n = 18n-6+ 6-16n$ Simplifying, $-34=2n$ $n=-17$ Plugging it back in yields, $8*-39= 3*-102$ which is true.
