# Evaluate: (-2-2x)/(3)=-8

## Expression: $\frac{ -2-2x }{ 3 }=-8$

Move the constant to the left-hand side and change its sign

$\frac{ -2-2x }{ 3 }+8=0$

Multiply both sides of the equation by $3$

$-2-2x+24=0$

Calculate the sum

$22-2x=0$

Divide both sides of the equation by $2$

$11-x=0$

Use the commutative property to reorder the terms

$-x+11=0$

Change the signs on both sides of the equation

$x-11=0$
