Answer

x = -5

Work Step by Step

-4(x + 8) - 11 = 3 - 26 Simplify by distributing the -4 into the two terms inside the parentheses on the left. -4x + (-32) - 11 = 3 - 26 Simplify. -4x + (-43) = -23 -4x - 43 = -23 Add 43 to both sides to get rid of the -43 on the left. -4x = 20 Divide both sides by -4 to find x. x = -5
