8x – 23 = -x + 18 is how I’m interpreting your query.

“the opposite of the number” is slightly confusing, so I’m assuming you mean a negative. If not, please let me know.

We can solve for x using this equation.

8x – 23 = 18 – x

Add x to both sides9x – 23 = 18

Add 23 to both sides9x = 41

Divide both sides by 9x = 4.56
