#### Explanation:

#"isolate "2g" on the left side of the equation by subtracting"#

#"2 from both sides"#

#cancel(2)cancel(-2)+2g=8-2#

#2g=6#

#"divide both sides by 2"#

#(cancel(2) g)/cancel(2)=6/2rArrg=3#

#color(blue)"As a check"# Substitute this value into the left side of the equation and if equal to the right side then it is the solution.

#2+(2xx3)=2+6=8=" right side"#

#g=3" is the solution"#
