C = -4

#### Explanation:

Assuming you are just wanting to solve for C, the goal is to isolate C. Here is how you can do that:

1) Multiply both sides by 2. so you get:

4 = C+8

2) Next step is to subtract 8 from both sides, and this is what you will end up with:

-4 = C

3) There is your answer, C = -4.

4) To check your work, you plug your answer (-4) for C and then do the calculation. -4 plus 8 divided by 2 surely equals 2. So we know the value we found for C which is -4 is indeed correct.
