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
