Add up the right-hand terms and divide by $8$. Answer: $\frac{10}{3}$

#### Explanation:

Find a common denominator on the right-hand side. In this case, it is $3$. This will leave you with

$- \frac{4}{3} + \frac{84}{3} = \frac{80}{3}$

$8 x = \frac{80}{3}$
Divide both sides by $8$, leaving you with
$x = \frac{80}{24}$
which reduces to $\frac{10}{3}$.
