#### Answer

The solution is -2

#### Work Step by Step

-8n+1=-6n+5 Subtract 1 from both sides
-8n+1-1=-6n+5 -1
-8n =-6n +4 Add 6n to both sides
-8n +6n=-6n +4 +6n
-2n =4 Divide by -2 on both sides
$\frac{-2n}{-2}$=$\frac{4}{-2}$
n=-2
The solution is -2
Check
-8n+1=-6n+5 Replace x with -2
-8(-2)+1=-6(-2)+5 Multiply
16+1=12+5
17=17
