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 left hand side of the equation by expanding it as,

3(8bx +y) 23bx-7y
3x8bx+3y 23bx-7y
24bx+3y 23bx-7y

Step 3

Now subtract 23bx to both sides of the equation to coll...

3(8bxy) 23bx-7y
24bx 3y 23b -7y
24bx 23bx 3y= 23bx 23bx- 7y
24bx 23bx +3y=-7y
