    Yes, Both are equivalent.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Step 1:

    To find the equality between the given terms Use the BODMAS (Brackets Orders Division Multiplication Addition Subtraction)

    RHS SIDE:

    (1/8)-10*((3/4)-(3/8*X)+(5/8*X)

    Equation after 1st modification

    (1/8)-((15/2)-(15/4*X))+(5/8*X)

    Equation after Second modification

    ((1/8)-(15/2)+(15/4*X)+(5/8*X))

    Equation after Third modification

    LCM 2,4,8 is 8

    And taking LCM equation changes to (1-60+30*X+5*X)/8

    Equation after Final modification

    (-59+35*X)/8        ———   1

    Step 2:

    LHS SIDE:

    -1/8*(59-35X)

    By applying the BODMAS rule in the above equation we will get

    (-59+35*X)/8        ———— 2

    From equations 1 & 2, the expression (1/8)-(10*((3/4)-(3/8*X))+(5/8*X) is equivalent to (-1/8)*(59-35*X)
