    Answer:

    1 solution,  x = -1.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    3(x + 5 )= −4x + 8

    3x + 15 = -4x + 8

    3x + 4x = 8 – 15

    7x = -7

    x = -1.

    Answer:

    1

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Solve the equation for x:

    3(x + 5) = -4x + 8

    Distribute.

    3x + 15 = -4x + 8

    Combine like terms.

    3x + 15 = -4x + 8

    +4x         +4x

    7x + 15 = 8

         -15   -15

    7x = -7

    Divide both sides by 7.

    x = -1

    The following equation has one solution, x = -1.
