$x = 4$

#### Explanation:

$2 x - 3 + 7 - x = 8$

We're going to gather like terms. This means that we group the coefficients of $x$ together and we group the constant terms together:

$x \left(2 - 1\right) + 4 = 8$

$x + 4 = 8$

We can subtract $4$ from both sides of the equation leaving:

$x = 4$
