# Can anyone help me solve this algebra equation? (6x+5)/x =8

Mar 8, 2017

$x = \frac{5}{2}$

#### Explanation:

Multiply both sides of the equation by $x$:

$\frac{x}{1} \cdot \frac{6 x + 5}{x} = 8 x$

Simplify: $6 x + 5 = 8 x$

Subtract $6 x$ from both sides of the equation:

$6 x - 6 x + 5 = 8 x - 6 x$

Simplify: $5 = 2 x$

Isolate the $x$ by dividing both sides of the equation by $2$:

$\frac{5}{2} = \frac{2 x}{2}$

Simplify and rearrange:

$x = \frac{5}{2}$
