# Solve the equation 8 - 2x = - 8x + 14

**Solution:**

Given: 8 – 2x = –8x + 14

To solve the equation, isolate the variable.

By transposing the terms, we get

- 2x + 8x = 14 - 8

By further calculation

6x = 6

Divide both sides by 6[using division property of equality]

6x/6 = 6/6

x = 1

Therefore, the solution of the equation is x = 1.

## Solve the equation 8 - 2x = - 8x + 14

**Summary:**

Solving the equation 8 – 2x = –8x + 14, we get x = 1.
