Answer

x = -13

Work Step by Step

5 - 8 = 5x + 10 - 4x Isolate the terms containing x. We can do this by subtracting 10 from both sides to remove the +10 on the right, thus separating the constants 5 - 8 - 10 = 5x - 4x Simplify. 5 - 8 - 10 = 5x - 4x -3 - 10 = 5x - 4x -13 = 5x - 4x -13 = x x = -13
