    Answer:

    Distribute 8 to all terms within the parenthesis

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Remember to follow PEMDAS. The steps are:

     1) Distribute 8 to all terms within the parenthesis

    8(x + 5) = 8(x) + 8(5) = 8x + 40

    2) Isolate the x. Do the opposite of PEMDAS

    8x + 40 = 56

    2.5) Note the equal sign. What you do to one side, you do to the other

    8x + 40 (-40) = 56 (-40)

    8x = 56 – 40

    8x = 16

    (8x)/2 = (16)/2

    x = 16/2

    x = 8

    8 is your answer
