To determine what you need to add to 5/7 to get 8, we can set up the equation:

5/7 + x = 8

To solve for x, we can subtract 5/7 from both sides of the equation:

x = 8 - 5/7

To add the fractions, we need a common denominator. In this case, the common denominator is 7. So, we have:

x = (8 * 7)/7 - 5/7

Simplifying the equation:

x = 56/7 - 5/7

x = 51/7

Therefore, you need to add 51/7 to 5/7 to get 8.

5/7 + x = 8
