User: 8x - (5x)

Weegy: Remember there is an invisible 1 after the minus sign just before the bracket which means that the content of the bracket must be multiplied by -1 8x -1(5x + 4) = 5 8x -5x - 4 = 5 (now bring all terms involving x together) 3x - 4 = 5 (now bring -4 [ to the other side of the = sign, changing it to +4) 3x = 5 + 4 (now simplify and solve) 3x = 9 x = 9/3 x = 3 ]
