Step 2

To find the value of x try to isolate the variable x to one side and rest to other.

So here solve the right hand side of the equation by cross multiplying the denominators to the numerators of opposite denominator and also multiply the denominators  as,

5(1)+8(x-2)
x8
16
8 x 5
5 8x16
16
40

5(1)+8(x-2) x8 16 8 x 5 5 8x16 16 40

Step 3

Now multiply 40 on both sides ...

5(1)+8(x-2)
16
8 x 5
5 8.x16

40
40(x+8) 40(8x -11)

40
40(x+8)(Sx-11)
16
