#### Answer:

#### Explanation:

- Sum similar terms:
#color(red)(-1)+8n\color(red)(+4)=19 \to 8n+3=19# - Isolate the term involving the variable on the left: to do so, subtract
#3# from both sides:#8n+3\color(red)(-3) = 19\color(red)(-3)# . The equation becomes#8n = 16# - Solve for the variable. To do so, divide both sides by
#8# :#\frac{8n}{\color(red)(8)} = \frac{16}{\color(red)(8)} \to n = 2#
