i need help with this equation

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question! Hope your day is going well!

The goal is to combine all like terms. First let's simplify both sides

6x-2x+8=x+5

4x+9=x+5 (Next, let's subtract x from both sides)

3x-x+9=x-x+5

2x+9=5 (Let's subtract 9 from both sides)

2x+9-9=5-9

2x=-4 (Divide by 2 to both sides)

x=-2.
