    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 sides

    9x – 23 = 18

    Add 23 to both sides

    9x = 41

    Divide both sides by 9

    x = 4.56
