The solution is $x$ can be any number.

#### Explanation:

On the left side of the equation group and combine the like terms.

On the right side of the equation expand the term in parenthesis:

$10 x - 16 = 10 x - 16$

Isolate the $x$ terms on one side of the equation and the constants on the other side of the equation:

$10 x - 16 - 10 x + 16 = 10 x - 16 - 10 x + 16$

$0 = 0$

Therefore the solution is $x$ can be any number.
