    Answer:

    x = 8

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Step 1: Simplify both sides of the equation.

    3x−8(x−8) = 24

    3x+(−8)(x)+(−8)(−8) = 24 (Distribute)

    3x+−8x+64 = 24

    (3x+−8x)+(64) = 24 (Combine Like Terms)

    −5x+64 = 24

    −5x+64 = 24

    Step 2: Subtract 64 from both sides.

    −5x+64−64 = 24−64

    −5x = −40

    Step 3: Divide both sides by -5.

    −5x
    -x

    = −5

    =  −40
    /−5

    x = 8
