Answer:

To solve this problem you multiply each side of the equation by #color(red)(6)#. See full explanation below.

Explanation:

Multiply each side of the equation by #color(red)(6)# to solve for #x# while keeping the equation balanced:

#x/6 xx color(red)(6) = 8 xx color(red)(6)#

#x/color(red)(cancel(color(black)(6))) xx cancel(color(red)(6)) = 48#

#x = 48#
