~ Papa guy

simplify the equation to the form, which is simple to understand

-1/6(x-18)+1/2(x+2)=x+8

Simplifying:

-0.166666666667*(x-18)+1/2*(x+2)=x+8

Simplifying:

-0.166666666667*(x-18) + 0.5*(x+2)=x+8

Reorder the terms in parentheses

+(-0.166666666667x+3) + 0.5*(x+2)=x+8

Remove unnecessary parentheses

-0.166666666667x+3 + 0.5+*(+x+2+)=+x+8

Reorder the terms in parentheses

-0.166666666667x+3+( + 0.5x+1)=x+8

Remove unnecessary parentheses

-0.166666666667x+3 + 0.5x+1=+x+8

move all terms containing x to the left and all other terms to the right.

-0.166666666667x + 0.5x-1x=+8-3-1

simplify left and right side of the equation.

-0.666666666667x=+4

divide both sides of the equation by -0.666666666667 to get x.

x=-6

Hope I helped.
