Answer:

Assuming you meant 850,000
#x = 50000#

If it is 85000 the same working still applies but with different numbers.
#x= -715000#

Explanation:

#9x + 8(100000 - x) =850000#

Expand the brackets

#9x + 800000 -8x = 850000#

Collect like terms

#x + 800000 = 850000#

Rearrange

#850000 - 800000 = x#
#x = 50000#
