We have nothing to solve.....there needs to be an equal sign  somewhere for that

 $$2x-\frac{x}{8}+5=35$$ Subtract 5 from both sides. $$2x-\frac{x}{8}=30$$ Multiply by 8 on both sides to eliminate the pesky fraction. $$16x-x=240$$ Combine like terms. $$15x=240$$ Divide by 15 to isolate x. $$x=16$$
