Answer:

There is no solution.

Explanation:

Solve:

#6x-5+8x-6=8x+6x+11#

If we look carefully at both sides, you can see that #14x# is on both sides, which means that they will cancel each other, leaving #-11=11#, which means that there is no solution to this problem.

Work it out:
Combine like terms on both sides.

#14x-11=14x+11#

Subtract #14x# from both sides.

#color(red)cancel(color(black)(14x))-color(red)cancel(color(black)(14x))-11=11#

Simplify.

#-11!=11#

No solution.
