Cross multiply to get

 

-8x = 6

 

Divide -8 on both sides...

 

x = -6/8

Just a slight correction......I think HSC missed the negative sign in front of the  "6"

 

-8 = -6/x

 

-8x  = - 6

 

x = 6/8   =  3/4

 

[Don't worry, HSC.....I still gave you a point....it was an honest mistake......!!! ]
