Answer:

#x=7#

Explanation:

#-6=6(x-8)#

#-6=6x-48#

#48-6=6x#

#42/6=(6x)/6#

#7=x#

You use distributive property on the brackets to get #6x-48#. Then you add #48# to both sides so you isolate for #x#. Then you subtract #48# and #6# so you get #42#.

You then divide both sides by #6# so #x# is completely isolated.
