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

It appears as if this post was edited since Cphill's last post.

 

\(2x-\frac{x}{8}+5=35\) 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.
\(x=16\)
